"The time my question is button is going to do it again, but I got lucky. You didn't do it again. They came out of there. Visiting the keenland started Jeff Powell here in this week's edition of unsung heroes presented by claiborne, you heard him talk about his team and it is a team effort he's the quarterback essentially. But he works with a team of starting gate crew members that help ensure a safe and a fair start to every race. Jeff, let me ask you this question. What is the one thing that keeps you up at night? The one nightmare scenario that a starter could experience. Leaving a horse behind the star gate. And I'm knocking on some wood right now because I don't even like to talk about that. That's my nightmare. You my nightmare. Do you ever spring the latch and go, gosh, I should have waited an extra second? Oh, sure. Yeah. Really? Or I missed my tents? You know, sometimes you sometimes you do it and if you think you should have done it quicker because or you should have waited yes, exactly. Yes, there's a lot of times that's happened. Believe me, to every starter that's ever starting to race. I can tell you that. Yeah, yeah. I'm sure it has I mentioned the conversation in that the things that go on in the starting gate. If you would take me inside the gate when the horse loads and the jockeys aboard the horse and the starting gate crew members are there in the stall with each horse, what exactly is going on? What are those conversations like if they even are conversations between the jockey and the starting gate crew? Oh yeah, there's always conversations. A lot of those are just trying to get the job is to relax too because I mean they're not scared, but they're nervous, you know, and they want to they want to get out and they don't want to host a stone when they don't want to get bumped when they come out of there. They want their horse straight too. But sometimes they're trying to help you too much and that affects the horse too, you know. They're trying to they're trying to do the same thing you're doing. It's kind of you go in and you'll talk, you do, you talk to riders. How you doing today? Just kind of conversation like that. Or they'll say they want to get off really good, which everybody does. We don't have to say that. We know that things like that. It's kind of funny, actually. Yeah. You said you keep a book on each horse. So you know their tendencies. So you can review it when you get ready to load them in for the races in the afternoons. How about with the jockeys? Is there something to be said for the starting gate crew having a knowledge of the jockey and their tendencies? Oh, yeah. And you know how people some people get along better with other people and I've actually when I worked in Florida I actually tried to put guys that I knew got along with jockeys and was included because it helps believe me, if they don't like the job, which some people don't get along, you try to change the bother the horse too. There's kind of a lot of different things you're dealing with. You're dealing with two people in there in a homeownership, you're trying to keep more quiet and these guys do a good job, I'm telling you right now, a real good job. It really is fascinating. And you know, being on the starting gate crew is one of the first of all, a lot of people don't even realize how much great work that they do and how important they are to the start of race. But it's one of the most dangerous jobs you can have on the racetrack too, isn't it? Oh, yeah, absolutely. The thing I always say is you'll see a horse ran up in the jockey gets thrown out usually. Sometimes a lot of times the job is getting hurt in there too, but the jockey can always get off and leave. The guy in there with the horse, if he's doing his job, right. He can't leave. He's standing there with a horse. Trying to keep him in there from hurting himself or anybody else or the guy beside us. There's horses on both sides of those horses rare up and they'll strike the guy next to him and start the guy in the stone with him. Our clients are the bad things going to happen. Guys, turn those shoulders up and then these not too many systems start with getting back to the point horses in and it's rough. It's a rough job. But most of the guys that do it for a long time, they're doing it because they really like it. It's kind of weird. Yeah, it's for love of the game. Yeah, exactly. Yeah. You know, they say in football that if you don't notice an offensive lineman that they are doing their job correctly, but you notice them when they mess up and they get called for a holding penalty, for example, or hands to the face or one of those types of things. But if they don't get a penalty, you don't notice them, and that means they're doing their job right. And it's very much like that with the starters roll too, isn't it? Yeah. If somebody knows your name for a reason. A lot of people don't know who you are. You probably did a pretty good job. Well, Jeff, actually. Yes, spend a minute or two talking about your background. I know you said you grew up in Wyoming, is that right? No, I'm from Montana. Montana. Okay. Please do resources in Washington Oregon. And affairs in montcalm went on a little kid. And let me see an.

"Back behind the bar words, touch it. He has done it. Tiger is back. Tiger is back on top. Tiger Woods, the 2019 masters champion. And breathtaking performances. Here's how you count to 8 three two one and for the 8 time college basketballs national championship trophy is coming home to Kentucky. But behind every great hero, there are others. Individuals who play a crucial role in the achievements of those we read about in the headlines. The ultimate team players. Contend to stand behind the curtain, embracing their place as a vital part of a sports success. In horse racing, these are the unsung heroes. That's a sport filled with unsung heroes, including this week's gas to his Jeff Powell he is the starter at kingland and boy, what amazing work he does. There are so many of you that might not even realize that his job exists, but it is critical for the success of racing day in and day out. Every track has a starter and Jeff's going to tell you all about it now. Jeff, first of all, good morning. Thanks for taking some time and congratulations on being this week's unsung hero. Thanks, Mike. Actually, the guys that work for me should be the Aung San there of not me, believe me. They do all the work. Well, you know, I've had an opportunity to visit with some starting gate crew members and you're right. You know, it's almost a thankless job. If you're a fan watching the races, you don't pay attention to those folks, but boy, without them, it could be it would just be a nightmare, wouldn't it? Yes, it would. All the guys, all the guys have been around horses are most life. And especially around the racetrack, they have been in, you know, they know what they're doing. All the guys that work here at Canadian for a long time. So you don't have to really worry too much. But most of their work starts in the morning when we're training the horses. So that way we know what to do in the afternoon. This Jeff is your first year as the starter at keeneland. Let's start here. Tell me a little bit about what your job entails and how you go about your daily routine. Well, first thing in the morning, we started 6 30 school in horses. Teaching them to do what they do in the afternoon. The end products in the afternoon. Most of the works in the morning, especially the young horses, we lead them through the first time they're there and back and forth through and probably just let them go unless they're really good. We might close them up. We just don't want to scare them the first time. And then after that, they slowly progress from walking out to jogging out. Each time getting a little faster Kelly, learn to break. And when you put company with them, they're natural tendency for competition comes out and it makes them come out a little faster. We break them a couple of times and then you start back them out to calm them down because then you got them all stir it up, you know? Yeah. So it's kind of each horse is a little different, if you have a problem with the horse, you have to try to fix it. We keep books on all the horses. So certain oranges, you might have to put a shank on to getting in to go in a little better all open the front doors on one sometimes. It's just kind of trying to make everything easier for everybody, especially the horse. So you are in forgive me if I get this wrong, but you are essentially the quarterback working with the starting gate crew members and kind of running the show and directing everything, but it's a team effort. Oh, absolutely a team effort. And believe me, I forget things and these guys will tell me, hey, we have that horse up there a couple of days ago and this is what we did with them. And we'll do that. Just if I have forgotten about it or patent Wheaton it down, let's usually written down, but sometimes you miss things, you know, but all these guys have good memories too. They've had on the horse in the morning and you try to put them with that horse in the afternoon and if the horse has been a problem, so they know them and know what's going to happen, you know? Yeah, very interesting. Jeff, what is the ultimate goal, the best scenario that can happen for a horse when the horse goes into the starting gate? What are you when the team trying to accomplish each and every race? Well, best thing is if each horse walks walks in there with no problem, stands quietly, relax the horse it's relaxed right there in one's standing there moving around. And you don't have to do anything else. You just everybody gets all straight after the last ones in and away you go. It's. A perfect thing. But usually there's some of them moving around. So you got to always watch their feet when they come in. We chose as they come in. I watched their feet. Make sure they're okay. One of them the problem we might pick a horse is tail up or guys certain things is to come the horse down just so paying attention for two seconds is all we need, all of them at the same time paying attention for two seconds. And they can one or two seconds. I think long. I've often talked about a moment of silence, right? Which is when everything slows down and comes to a stop. And as you just said, two seconds is all it takes. But you'll hear a lot of people in next was starting to get at a racetrack. They'll hear a lot of noise. They'll hear the jockeys talking to the handlers and to the starting gate crew members. How do you know the exact right time to spring the latch? Well, just like you said, it's real quiet and I watched all the horses as they go in like I said. And you can tell if one's going to probably do something before he does it and when you have done this for a while, you can just kind of tell that he's going to take a special look at him. You know, make sure the last horse is in the back doors are locked. My man's up on the pontoon and once it gets quiet and as straight as they're going to get the way you go, it's sometimes if the guessing game usually usually you know usually you know. Yeah, there was a horse in with the guy when you kept turning his head to the inside. And he'd straighten him up and then he turned it back again and the horses are really strong. You know, in their past. So that I was.

"Fact that it started here with sky that when money really started pouring in to the clubs because of the tv the tv rights that resulted than plays plays plays agents that whole money machine really started to be generated in a significant way. It may clubs clearly then started enjoying substantial revenues. It took them from where they were probably pretty risky. In terms. it is difficult to balance. The books in many is in terms that alone making return but when they became so sort of financially viable became attractive to be financial groups to own them for rich individuals to pull money in shakes in the middle east to to invest others from china. I think that suddenly a lotta power into the clubs but the clubs there will have got to not forget how it's all come about through. The structure over thief overweight having disciplined approach. You know building the excitement with champions league and other things and if all that suddenly disappears and well clubs cup becomes one thing. Superleague becomes another thing that whole sort of structure. That was so carefully built. Would just fold in on itself. And i think clubs have got to be very careful about just not being too greedy wanting more and more more or less quite candidate most of the clubs in the major european and in most of the other key markets are doing incredible financially. There is a fair. They'll kill the golden goose because even the world clubs cup itself we always resisted because it goes way back to the seventy s when we first reviewed the oil clubs. Come as a concept and we all came to the conclusion it was a bit of a danger because it was fighting the national teams and really it was the national teams that gave that great. Enthusiasm that great. You know motive Support by the supporters. And if you took that nation's element away and reduced in diminished it. Just two clubs. You know that was gonna be a lot of competition of killing. One thing is a world clubs. Cup could have become bigger than the woke up. Should those things be competing with each other. So i think the success and the has been incredible. Success is in itself the danger is. There's too much greet aboard for more. When would that who is in that room in when you talked about the world cup club cup. Where we're calling it in the seventies is that a sort of a week. I'm about to statler to a degree. There was a sports journalist from the daily mail. Whose name will come to me. Who's that box in correspondent. Geoff how jeff.

S. economy strength do you agree with them and do those kinds of tweets hello you know for us we we have already moved into a defense of steak I mean our we're sitting on more than thirty percent cash on our Albert strategies we've also moved into a lower beta embezzling so the reaction that we're seeing in our portfolios are dramatically less than what we're saying within the stock markets we're seeing less than half of the losses within those markets there will be amazing opportunities out there what you really want to be looking out with those opportunities however all our you know is it something that is backlog that has a demand that will be it also order or is it something that will be passed to be with a cruise line the people are canceling their trips are not to be able to go back and read full power strips but what you can be looking at is you know somebody who is putting off a purchase of a cell phone or the one that you know they need new clothes for whatever next season as I'm not gonna go out and buy that once things are calming down a little bit so it really kind of depends on where in the market your leader looking things like the cruise lines and airlines they will return having a loose two thirds of their value here in most cases over the course of the last couple weeks is probably an overreaction on the cruise line industry in the airline industry are not gonna go out of business but they do all this in the temple we need to see a calming down of of what's going on in the markets before it would be worth stepping in and buying those types of things we we have the adage of not buying or not catching a falling knife so we'll wait for this to settle down a little bit before we're going and so Scott Maynard of Guggenheim partners co founder and global chief investment officer said a global recession may be inevitable with markets finally waking up to the risk of financial and geopolitical contagion from the corona virus do you agree with that it's certainly a possibility I mean again when when you have school closures just as a as an example I mean most of the United States has people that are a dual income families who should stay home with the kids are you gonna be as productive working from home as you would in the office when you are purchasing our owner children feeding them breakfast lunch and dinner and not being able to has been the same amount of time that you would typically on work and those types of situations that's just one example think about the number of conferences that account canceled think about how that impacts of the airline industry and hotels think about the entertainment industry analysis is having an impact on it these are things that are very real we'll have to leave it there are a lot more to come that's Jeff Powell managing partner Polaris Greystone coming up we're going to be talking about the house asking for the full DC circuit court of appeals all sixteen judges to hear the case on its subpoena for former White House counsel don McGann I'm June Grasso this is Bloomberg dance like at the end it's a great way to make a model with your kids first I hold my hands up like they're.

at viva la zero we can just build this entire show that eighty dollar reads and hopefully be able to keep these lights on at some point just found out this morning just found out this morning wild world this radio business also wild world is this kid's life now if you didn't see this this weekend Montana state captivated the world whenever a kid named Joe Thompson one on the court in this is how it ended we've got some no sound at all one thing what happened there anyways Joe Thompson hits a layup a free throw a three pointer a half court shot and then caps it off with a full court shot then give a shout out to Kobe Bryant ladies and gentlemen joining us now from Montana state the man to talk to his T. shirt in there was James and gave a he or a Levin thousand Montana state greatness Joe talked with the guys that you doing Joe okay big question how did you get picked for this contest what was this contest and did you have any clue that any of these balls are going to go in the hole no so the contest is it I go to all the games and when the guys from the spa cats properties like a want to do and it's like yeah that sounds fun I think I could do that okay I mean I I thought playing basketball in eighth grade in two weeks like I shot one shot two weeks ago and that was it okay so the grass is the contest one that happens at the arena often or is just like the first time it's been done for me it's been done for six years and it's every man's game and I'm the first person to make the full court okay so you have to make a lay up first yep then a free throw nailed it three point yes the first one okay may the second did you practice and Swisher what was it I don't remember opening today okay then you make the half court one first try first trust wish all so that place had to be sold electric by the time he got back to the full part is it's all in a minute has to happen yes said sixty seconds to do it and I knocked out the first four and fifteen seconds okay so here we go now we're back at the full court how many balls around the port for you to potentially run through I had three court three balls on the court okay and like a stream of people just relaying them back to me I think I made on my fourth or fifth shot your first one your first one how far off was hello is so bad even make it to the three point line also it was there any chance of that was thought it don't like there's no chances going energy you feel like you know what I think I can make this thing okay so I drink the half court okay crestor thin out there cheering okay you everyone's in it everyone's like okay he has a chance through the first one and I was like I never mind this everyone's energy levels he doesn't have a leg is still sort of concession stand but and then the second one a little better third one right on target not hard enough and then I need nailed it okay did you have the Kobe Bryant celebration log in your brain for that moment or is that just natural this is something that Kobe would do he deserves this respect or is that just something that kind of candy at the spur of the moment that's something natural for I think what our whole generation yup hello everyone if you if you make a half court shot that you still think you help you make a full or shots like that that's so natural I wanna let you know I think I would've reacted much differently than you I you're very like calm I was like you were much calmer than I think I would have been if I would just hit a free throw a layup free throw three pointer half court shot before I would've lost my dad I would jump up on the scorer's table you're very professional do the whole thing yes yes some like the comments on all the videos their whole lives are like roasting me on the table a lot this do probably owns goats do you do you goats now but I've seen him a lot of people said I saw whenever I tweeted out the video about seventy five percent comments were if you were to close your eyes and picture what a kid from Montana state would look like well that's exactly what it looks like I don't think that some to be scared of I am in the works for me what's your major over there I studied film production really Montana's doesn't hiring interns yeah we are I mean especially one second drain full court shot under fourth attempt I would love that all right yes you are you throwing your resume Hey respect you are desirous may do it usually you make content that gets millions of views it is all over the place that's what you do it has more views than the state of Montana thank they give everyone can watch the video two times and then it's like all the Alzheimer's patients like all the two month old did you only when eleven thousand dollars that was a lot of people's thoughts was it was only eleven thousand dollars yep eleven thousand I mean I'm happy with that my car broke down in December so like that helps walking everywhere don't you think you should go to school or are you on scholarship party I'm not now are we think here hold on Joe this is the camera here Montana state listen I understand that the bobcats are very proud institution I I understand that over there and Big Sky country there's a lot of opportunity for people to do a lot of things but to be completely honest I knew of the Montana Grizzlies okay I've known of the Montana brewers that represent the university of Montana I had no idea there was a Montana state until this man Joe Thompson stepped up wearing jeans and a tucked in T. shirt this film production major your university on the map like no human in the history of bobcat Montana state basketball he should be on scholarship he should maybe be athletic director and I think all these other titles are things that Joe Thomas would relish or Joe Thompson would relish I love that I would totally take that sounds like a good time I would be all about what did you do afterwards to celebrate this whole thing oh my god I don't remember I blacked out now for a bit and edges to while everyone recognizes me people are saying that's the guy who one is as is do you always talk to shorten your genes yeah professional always always yeah well I want you to have boots on that that was yeah you know books though is that because you're in the contest or is that the standard it's too icy outside it's too slippery got you I heard of just began so you can't really even go on a victory lap right now because everything's fine I I just did a photo shoot in my four piece denim suit I'll send you the photos there you know all that denim this gets great joy I wanna let you know we're very proud of you we're very thankful you came on and if you don't get a scholarship I am never gonna talk about Montana state ever again well meant and I thank you I love how you have a plan to be left shoulder huge fan Hey at your library that's what we do Joe you know I could never do is drain a full court shot with what thirteen thousand people I'm not price seven thousand people watching how many people are there full stadium sixty five hundred it was the biggest game of the season rivalry game most back he'll be all season we have in front of everyone what year are you it I'm a senior all the way to go well ladies and gentlemen absolute legend Montana state bobcats Joe Thompson thank you thank you for having me have a good I can't wait to work here yeah I'll be there soon I think that new car you can buy for less than ten grand hi they should give the kid a scholarship because you're right because they will like that come to Montana state like montage that they used to get the incoming students will be using that yes two years absolutely give the kid a smaller ship Joe Thomas is given everything he's had to the Montana state bobcats for the last three years let's give the guidance office that oppressive impressive feat I've seen those things before at game's halftime where you eat the layup free throw three pointer half court full court usually it's like fifty grand a hundred grand as good as it is so unlikely for somebody to hit all those this kid was just unconscious with the basketball I absolutely love it I love ingrained in Montana is like a hundred grand it is it is basically the same thank you easier but I think that is why he didn't go nuts like I can go like buy a happy meal from McDonald's after this like usually you're winning a million Bucks if you make that she's I am happy for that I don't know it's going to be him but we only have like twenty followers whatever their bunch of his friends were like at your brother Joe I think his day your brother Joe you are brother John right is what is making I wish we would certainly like to go on the part that your brother Joe and I was like yeah let's do it and he was like I deal with DM each other is only like twenty five followers or something like that is only following I tend to have a Montana I thought was a fake account though hello good cat fished out of a good to yeah whenever you create a first of all a photo yeah he's awesome dude I'm a big fan that Joe Thompson get wanna make two and then a shout out to Kobe directly afterwards I think that story alongside this damn Bonita Dr Loria who's who didn't start but ended up playing for the Carolina hurricanes against the Toronto Maple Leafs after being an employee for the Toronto Maple Leafs is maybe the top two stories of the weekend even with Tyson fury knocking out Deontay Wilder that's M. Boney story this is about a story is a thing right out of a movie I had no idea that this is possible by the way so next year the hockey guy that's hockey talks podcast you host with AQ Shipley of pretty good podcast the conversation about hockey hockey doesn't get talked about often and last for instance as Sam bony driver ends up as a goalie in the NHL which is exactly what happened with David airs this weekend how what are the rules on this because a lot of people question so every home team designates what we call the emergency backup goalie it's usually like a team employee who used to play in college played some level of pretty good hockey this guy played the past but right now he's a beer league goalie Zamboni driver for least minor league affiliate the Marlies and he I guess he sits up in practice from time to time takes a couple shots and he ended up being after both goals for the hurricanes got injured you took offense to the second goalie got plowed I believe he was about seventy yards outside of his race got ran over ventures part of the Revengers he's out in Tom's is Sam bounty driver who said he didn't even know that the other goalie got hurt he was you sitting in a back room waiting to get on that Zamboni and all the studies are getting texts from his friends it was like Europe Paul any goes in first two shots the CZ Watson okay first two shots the CZ Watson told Brenda Moore from the Carolina hurricanes has a hole where its response on the benches head down he's got a one of them broken hockey knows is his head down hands on face all my god what the hell is happening and then David Ayer's Zamboni driver extraordinaire playing goalie for the Carolina hurricanes against his own employer has an eight for eight save percentage in the third period dieting the Carolina hurricanes so when becoming one of the I think is the third star second star star star star star the weekend gets a bunch of sticks out from everybody water being spilled all over him in the locker room he is now officially an undefeated NFL NHL goalie his last time playing you want an eight one of the lower values want to.

"Rated R. immigrant neighbors so I I would I would say that unemployment is continue to go down quite significantly since we began to to raise rates in in at the end of two thousand sixteen actually the end of fifteen but again did the fed consider how raising rates would disproportionately impact those who are already struggling to secure employment I think our our consideration was really that the right thing to do is to get monetary policy back toward a place where reflected a an economy that had recovered quite a bit for the benefit of all people including low and moderate income people including my for a lot of people still recovering but the interest of time given that there be no signs of the economy overheating since then and you're now cutting rates is it possible you begin cutting rates too soon I think history will judge that we have to make the decisions in real time we we have the we really have learned something since then and that is that on Plymouth can be lower than than most people thought some pollution so bear that in mind knowing what you know would you still Love supported raising the interest rates when the fed did I did support them and and you know hindsight's twenty twenty I don't think you have to judge those decisions on what we knew at the time what more Americans have jobs today if the fed had not increased rates over the past three years I don't know where the fifty year low it's it's it's a fair question thank you thank you I would like to thank chairman Powell for his testimony today without objection all members have five legislative days within which to cement we have a list of federal reserve chair Jerome Powell testifying on Capitol for about three hours now and where the house financial services committee he's covered the things we were expected to just say he said that the economy is basically in good shape you think so much your policy is about where it should be he did refer to the corona virus over in China to their monitor that carefully to see what that might mean and there were a lot of questions and things like a repo that was to be expected and also Fairmont on climate right now is bring in Blue Ridge international economics and policy correspondent Michael key is coming to us from washes Michael tells what the headlines were for you were there any surprises no surprises David these hearings have become something of an anticlimax because Jeff Powell speaks after every fed meeting and of course every member of the fed speaks quite often so we have a pretty good idea of what they're thinking at any given time this was more of a chance for the fed chair to speak of the corona virus for the first time and he did suggest that yes the fed anticipates there will be an impact in China but how much of that spills over into the United States in global economy still way too early to tell the fed will continue to monitor it couldn't expect him to say a whole lot more than that there were some questions as you mentioned on the repo issue but nothing too difficult for him to answer and then a lot of questions about the budget about long term find deficit financing what Congress or the fed could do in terms of the next recession a lot of lot of the questions David that you're going to be talking to people about up in New Hampshire as it moves sort of from the federal reserve in the agencies to the political sphere yeah yeah I wonder Michael it seemed almost like a federal researcher Jay Powell was sending messages to president trump at the same time president trump was sending Mrs right back at J. pal because certainly drop was not made as miss that any procedure the fact that he thinks that the government should get their fiscal house in order he's worried about the deficit issues and we saw that new budget really runs up in the meantime he was asked specifically a present from treating while he was testifying saying that the stock market's going down any sort of blame J. Paul well that's sort of typical Donald Trump he does that to and J. Paul answered the way usually does say I didn't know that he did that and I didn't know that the markets went down you could point to the fact that the justice department announced an antitrust investigation again some big U. S. companies as a reason for the market going down today rather than power because I think Powell did what he intended to do and that was pretty much make no news I think the one thing people are going to remember about this hearing is California representative Katie Porter holding up a picture of Jayde Powell in black guys standing outside of Jeff Bezos house in Washington the after party for the alfalfa club she tried to make something of it as if there was some conspiracy there Paulsen I didn't talk to anybody famous or powerful here I just introduced by newly married son to general Jim Mattis yeah this is something important either don't go to the after party when you go to the health club dinner Mike or if you do make sure you don't get a picture taken is in place yeah that's about in Congress I don't get invited either I don't have to worry about it all come on the line I know you do okay Blue Ridge like Ricky and watch it thanks so much for joining us now let's find out how those markets are reacting as we talked about just now president trump tweeting about it let's turn to Abigail do little in new York's up what's going on the markets Abigail one thing that overall we're looking at a risk on mood for did broader equity markets in the financial markets more largely take a look at the S. and P. five hundred the Dow transports here in the U. S. B. C. gains both up for a second day in a row the S. and P. five hundred putting another all time highs however to the point of what you were just talking about with Mike Nikki in the idea of president trump tweeting that ask Powell is speaking the markets were going down we are off the highs but we do still have very solid gains behind that small leg low lower that could be the fact that term fed chairman Jay Powell is talking Acadia that they do not it's too early to measure the true impact of the virus that certainly leaves open the possibility that it could be more damaging than the early estimates of Goldman Sachs last week saying that it could take off four tenths of one percent of GDP here in the US in the first quarter now the risk on me though is confirmed by crude oil up one point one percent that's really been a laggard over the time heard as we take a look at the moment and also we have haven bonds selling off so overall investors are moving into stock out of haven assets that is why there is a strong risk appetite now since the start of the corona virus or at least since it would spend widely known crude oil has not fared so well down about fifteen percent in that time period trying of course is the world's largest user of natural resources so there's big fear that there could be a demand problem if China stays out of the economic picture with their economy shut down to some degree in orange we are looking at the S. and P. five hundred this is pretty interesting David because right now we had stocks for the first time over this time period doing than bonds his bonds over this time Kerry investors going into heaven bonds but today with the S. and P. five hundred going higher interest rates going a little bit lower over the course of the corona viruses we've been tracking it the S. and P. five hundred finally doing better and then on a very bright no David take a look at this movement really pretty incredible sprint up seventy three percent T. mobile of eleven point two percent this of course on T. mobile T. mobile getting approval for twenty six and a half billion dollar take over of spring it's very rare David to see the acquiring company move up not only isn't living up it's up more than eleven percent especially since twenty twelve it tells you just how much investors want this deal to come together yeah really they just say it's about time it's been a long cut time governor okay thanks so much to Abigail too little the polls are open now here in New Hampshire as we wait for results in the first in the nation primary we welcome now the eighty second governor of the state of New Hampshire his Republican Chris Sununu a special contributors Rick Davis a stone court capital Angie's NO Lana callers are back with this as well so go to welcome thank you so much for joining human life to serve the broad question gives the state the state how you doing we're doing really well looking at the economy here in New Hampshire is phenomenal it's booming when you have the lowest poverty rate in the country when the lowest unemployment rates businesses and families moving into doing it to Hampshire unlike any place else in the northeast that's a huge opportunity for the government but for families and individuals and that's why economic prosperity in a strong economy sold portent because it provides a better quality like a full provides more flexibility so we're very proud lot look is always a challenge out there whether it's investing in mental health opioids whatever might be but we have a lot of opportunity so it is that kinda world why would voters really be worried because the polls it sounds like their life is pretty good they don't want a life change should look look did this to his wife put folks come out first they come out to say yes we are very happy with it and that's why Donald Trump is actually a lot of voters out today on the Republican side even though he's really not running I mean you could get upwards of a hundred thousand votes today and they didn't have to come with us people kind of voting the the success that they're seeing in their communities he have also folks on the other side is going to be a candidate in this but a lot of kids any sort of to spend money but spent time with folks one on one in their communities to get them out some can it's a better at it than others in terms of look in New Hampshire if you go look someone in the eye he has a cool you as a person first middle by often the person that we get to the policy later and that's when he just such a good national litmus test because we do have such a high voter participation on both sides we are very purple were very politically diverse a doesn't take a lot of money name ID to do well here it really just take some of that spends time with the individual and that time gets you can't earn that vote that's for the case to the not voting people understand that responsibility of coming out and being that first litmus test for the rest of the country yeah I mean we hear a lot about the expectations for the candidates you know and what they're trying to get out of the the primary New Hampshire but how about the state I mean there's obviously a lot of spending that goes on in the primaries have on stage they they come in they spend a lot of money you know art are one TV station here because temporarily becomes less profitable TV station country be honest about it but the odds aren't everything they're really not my guess is there's a lot of pizza places that are feeding a lot of campaigns with with pizza night but there is an economic impact but it we don't really look at that as much as the impact we and responsibility we have a state and the citizen's to kind of be that first draw right this is not all about the dollar since of responsibility would take very sushi which is why we've given what happened in Iowa you know we just we just want to kind of confirm folks we get it right we've done this for a hundred years or pressure based on one have a bigger spotlight for pressure because we're not really changing anything we've done it a hundred percent reliable a hundred percent of the time so we've been a little more transparent about all the different things that we traditionally put in place one person one vote paper ballot it's counted results come out it's it's pretty simple we know it as Bloomberg does not account but we want to make sure people understand there's a lot of reliability and safety net and because of that a lot of folks come on participants so yeah it having dispenser Iowa we're hoping to get results tonight right we're gonna get you'll get some of the first towns I mean we do it on a on a paper ballot optical scanner there's no confusion the only cords that come out of those optical scan like the men right there's no internet is nothing like that and then the you get the results they're confirm very publicly all the candidates have people there that confirm those results in the cold it's pretty simple so in terms of what we're hearing from the candidates in the economic front we hear a lot about the.

"They carry deadly diseases like malaria and dengue one way scientists are trying to find the problem is with more mosquitoes specifically mosquitoes that are genetically engineered to wipe out the wild disease carrying kind a groundbreaking experiment took place in Brazil a few years ago but a new study is raising questions about the impacts of releasing laboratory mosquitoes into the wild the world's Allana Gordon reports the Miskito has always fascinated Jeff Powell I am very fond of mosquitoes I know that sounds weird but I am actually if you look at them under a microscope they're quite attractive and quite elegant creatures how is a geneticist an evolutionary biologist at Yale University despite his love he realizes they're up to no good as far as I know my skills do nothing positive for they're a threat to humanity cases of mosquito borne diseases like dengue have exploded a few years ago Powell was in Brazil studying the skew does and their genetic ability to transmit diseases and while he was there he heard about this big experiment that was about to take place a group of British and Brazilian scientists there were readying to release half a million mosquitoes that have been genetically engineered to have a so called Fadel gene and that means that the mosquitoes carrying they use anything that remains with them all the offspring die so keep up the meeting and wiped out that next generation of deadly mosquitoes how immediately had questions he wanted to know with these transgenic mosquitoes released in the wild mess with the genetic makeup of the natural population so I quickly went up there and I've talked to them he got the support he did and set up a genetic monitoring study he sampled the wild population before the release started as a baseline then the release began it was done by a British based company. Occitan with the backing of the Brazilian government picture truck driving down the streets of a small city in northern Brazil releasing a puff of mosquitoes every hundred yards or so. genetically altered insects can be a tough sell a few years ago residents of the Florida Keys town rejected a similar project it took a lot of community outreach to bring people around the whole idea and Purcell Joe doing was face to face job market Cooper was one of the scientists involved she's a biochemist at the university of sao Paulo so the people from the project branch of the houses and talk to the people so we dropped the whole CD for many different things corporal calls herself a Miskito architect because she spent her career designing miscue does she really wants to make a difference I am a very optimistic and so after the two year experiment she was pleased with how things turned out just as researchers at hoped the population of disease carrying mosquitoes dropped. so so much stronger long sure everything seems great oxy tech was expanding looking to replicate the results elsewhere including here in the US but this month the results of Jeff Powell study on the genetic impact of this Brazilian experiment on the wider mosquito population were published I found that some of the genetic material from those engineered mosquitoes have carried into the wild population. news of the study appears to be prompting a backlash in Brazil I think well the community's computing like what pearl has been getting news headlines in her inbox that include things like irresponsibility produces Dan gate super Miskito everything was so groups and now they are saying that the very very back to Pearl herself is not worried about the results of the monitoring study neither is the company oxy tech they were expecting some genetic mixing and they didn't find any negative impact but confirmed was unprepared for the public reaction and is mad at herself for not anticipating it I work with certain Jenny. raising my whole watch. and well I just I just mystify changing. and I bring my cell because today I did the wrong thing and this is the irony corporal is one of the co authors on Powell's genetic monitoring study I most players in the head of the people she worries the language in the study came off as alarmist that's what the company thinks and they're calling for changes to the study. hello doesn't want to hurt the work on transgenic mosquitoes especially as bugs build resistance to insecticide. as a matter of principle he says researchers should always bear in mind unanticipated a fax including the hypothetical that an even stronger creature can emerge not a weaker one the study notes this includes companies like oxy tech should always conduct genetic monitoring when doing this work they should have in place a program to follow up what's happening after the releases have been started. says it does a good job monitoring the mosquitoes these questions are going away them earlier this year transgenic mosquitoes were released in Africa for the first time in Burkina Faso last week I see text emitted an application to release transgenic mosquitoes in Florida. for the world I'm alone according. forget air conditioning there's nothing like opening a window on a warm summer day feeling the breeze and listening to the birds chirp. well that's an enjoyment that could disappear at least our grand kids won't get to enjoy it thanks in large part to us a new study published in the journal science says North America has lost twenty nine percent of its bird population since nineteen seventy that's a loss of around three billion birds billion with a B. PMR is one of the study's authors he says the loss hits all sorts of species right wing blackbirds warblers thrushes using metallers whole suite of species across diverse family the culprit I think you know where this is going one only needs to fly up an airplane and looked down at the landscape and see the humans have completely manipulated the landscape whether it's around urban areas in hand housing or it's the amount of land that we've converted to agriculture both in the U. S. Canada Central America South America we are changing the face of the earth birds control pests they pollinate plants they dispose of natural waist in short we need them but before you get too depressed there is a glimmer of hope says Mara the good news is is that nature is resilient once given a chance so if if we use Youmans act on this if we start to really value nature these birds will respond over sprint respond rapidly in five or ten years we could easily see some of these species starting to increase so how do we act well the studies website three billion birds dot org list simple steps we.

S. ten year treasury yielding one point five five percent that's a quick look at markets back to you Jim. and they'll take it here Bob moon Mr christening thank Christmas thank you very much and we are live from the Bloomberg interactive brokers studio so we heard live here on Bloomberg radio for the past hour so fed chair Jerome Powell at the Swiss institute of International Studies at the university of Zurich we got Bloomberg news of federal reserve reporter Matt BOS layer on the line with us now in math thanks for joining us what do you see as significant out of the figures remarks so Jeff Powell really was not going to be drawn into discussing that near term policy outlook much today beyond reiterating that line he's been using since June that the fed will act as appropriate to sustain the US economic expansion so I think you can kind of read into that whatever you like but you know for most people it's simply being taken as a signal that the fed is likely to follow through with a rate cut at their meeting in a couple weeks just the way the market the price for so that was there anything that startled you or surprised you not really I think this is a very sort of by the book appearance you know this is obviously the last piece of fed speak that we're going to get going into this that meaning in a couple weeks because that officials are now entering a blackout period where you know they will be able to make any public pronouncements on monetary policy so I think it really serves to kind of wrap up everything they've been saying in the last couple weeks which is that you know the US economy is still looking pretty strong but there is these emerging weak points in areas like manufacturing and business investment and so you know that's kind of the reason why we're doing what we're doing is taking an easier stance so I think he did a good job of navigating that and if you look at you know the market reaction we really haven't seen a whole lot from the speech today is there anything you heard where he was clearly signaling the markets. so I think that you know you have to go back to that you know language that he used that you know the federal act is appropriate to sustain the expansion because that was introduced in June in early June at a time when markets were really in turmoil and there was some question about you know how willing the fed would be to ease policy so I think that has clearly become the the code word if you well over the last couple months for you know the notion that the fed is in an easing stance and you don't have to worry about them under delivering that sort of thing for the fact that you know he keeps repeating that and using that language in that kind of contacts I think tells you just about everything you need to now thanks to Bloomberg news federal reserve reporter that poster. informed.

And so, yeah, I wanna storing something that that he broke just two people. Like there be no way, I could even ker guess right now. But a man in a what I could find it very easy though of. He suggests that Tyson fury is headed to clash with Deontay wilder for Marci. I mean, I'm sorry may eighteenth in the Big, Apple New York City. He goes on to say that the purse, which is a fury could reach three times seven million pounds. The defy is going to be in New York.

"Thousand fifteen council member Scott, Sherman teamed up with former Environment Committee chairman David Alvarez in a bipartisan effort, Dan Clemente styrofoam recycling program that was unanimously approved by the city council just over one year ago. This comes from a release by Jeff Powell over over in the office and. Nate they worked on that. And they had a styrofoam recycling program and many of the same council members who voted in favor of a ban today voted in favor of the styrofoam recycling measure, so your city council eager beavers to get at it decided they're going to ban styrofoam containers. And I can hear people right outbreak. There are so many bigger problems in the world today. There are so many bigger problems in the world today. Okay. You can say what you want to say. But I mean, all I gotta do is look at the voice of San Diego. The San Diego city council voted to ban styrofoam food containers on Tuesday. But in doing so exposed a possible limit on environmental activity activists ability to win support from low income communities for certain policies. Liberals are the most racist people walking the planet. They don't care about business owners, and they really don't care about minority. Business owners. They don't they don't now the ban will prevent restaurants and grocery stores from using plastic foam food containers. It bans anyone from bringing. The material to city parks and beaches and bans restaurants from giving out. Any plastic straws are utensils and less customers asked for them. Your city is a laughing stock. Our city is a laughing stock. This is disgraceful seriously. You have pot holes the size of you goes out there, you got people tripping on sidewalks breaking their necks. You got Lyme scooters everywhere. You look downtown. They're dumping a lease on corners and in bus shelters. And you you jokers you clowns, you people who collect paychecks for being city, councilmen you ban styrofoam containers. That's your big issue. Styrofoam containers. Was the voice of San Diego points out over a hundred other cities have adopted similar rules, cutting our own imperial beach and ensign nita's. Yeah. No, really and nita's hippie Ville, of course, hippie Ville bands and imperial beach. Okay. Well, there you go. So it's a great idea for a big city to do this. The city's plan faced last minute questions from two new council members who represent low income communities. That's because plastic foam called styrofoam is cheaper than other food packaging meaning switching away from it could drive down small restaurant prophets or drive up the cost of food. No kidding. Well, who cares man? Who cares? If those minority owned businesses are making money or not man, we're saving the environment. We've gotta protect the dolphins. The vote didn't even end up being close. The band was approved six three on party lines. You were warned about this. You knew this was coming folks when you went, and you pulled those levers in that way, and you put the Democrats in charge, you know, this right younger stand. Six three Democrats in a veto proof. Supermajority but council women, Monica Montgomery, and Vivian Merano voted for the ban only after aligning themselves with concerns that businesses could close because of the man Monica. Why do you care Vivian? Why? Do you care? You ran is Democrats. You don't care about business owners. You don't care about business owners, you care about unions support you care about being on the right side of the big resistance movement. What are you don't care about business owners? Vivian Merano look up has she ever run a business. Monica. Montgomery you ever run a business any of these people ever run a business. See I know people are saying Brett, you're really making a big thing out of. No, I'm not a making a big thing out of this because this is the slippery slope. They warned you about that. They warned you about. Gen Campbell and other newly-elected democratic councilwoman said most of the businesses in her wealthy coastal district that includes point Loma had already in voluntarily abandoned, plastic foam. Well, good good for you. Jen. Good for go around and give them a good conduct medal. Oh boy. Yes. Tony Tony cafes. Tony coffee shops. We don't have we're using biodegrade. We're actually we're using charcoal containers, we're using containers made out of magic these are edible containers spun sugar, you can put them on the seat of your car, and then the entire container and the food included within. Some business owners in low income communities may only just be hearing about the ban meaning that on top of recent minimum wage increases brought about by the pinko commie leftist. They might have to end up dealing with rising packaging costs while they may have to shut their doors. Boy, boy that would be kind of a bummer ha. It doesn't matter to Jen Campbell. Who's in the wealthier part of point? Loma doesn't really matter to her. She doesn't care Montgomery who represents in canto and other parts of southeastern San Diego said there hasn't been much attention paid to buy her constituents by environmental groups. I think there needs to be more outreach to my community. Why'd you vote for it? Genius flow. Why did you vote for it? You you already acknowledged that your your businesses in your commute. Ni did not understand this. Why did you are you supporting your your community or are you supporting the leftist agenda? What are you doing? The new city ordinance does allow waivers for businesses that bring in less than five hundred thousand dollars a year or show the city. They can't realistically use another product council. President georgette Gomez who represents city heights said she included those waivers in the plan. But Marino who represents Barrio Logan and sandy siege row. Still worried small business owners, particularly Spanish speaking ones would have trouble hearing about or applying for the waivers. Why did you vote for the ban genius? These people need to be held accountable. And if you don't hold them accountable starting now calling their offices telling them they're out of their minds for banning styrofoam. When you've got a recycling program in place already. This is insane. Merano said she extracted commitments from city staffers and environmental groups led by the surfrider foundation that they would not lose sight of Spanish, speaking business. Okay. How many folks over there at the surfrider foundation are walking around Barrio, Logan and city is and San you see drought and speak Spanish come on. Come on come on. Let's hear it guys diverse. You are come on tell me about it. Call me surfrider foundation. Tell me about how you guys are all about reaching out to the community. How you're you're defending the downtrodden and the business on you're not you're a bunch of leftist. You're a bunch of rich hippy liberals your ride your surfboard you swim around in middle of the day. You got your wet suit on while people are working jobs in neighborhoods, you're afraid to go into because doesn't fit your lifestyle. So tired of these people telling you had live your life. I figured twenty nine hundred. I'd come back. It'd be in a good mood for more than one day. I'm in a foul mood because I see what's happening to this. Once great city this once great city is being defiled by progressive politics. This is disgusting. Chris Kate one of three Republicans to vote against the band says he worries about the outreach to businesses owned by people who spoke other languages too good. Chris. I'm glad you raised that issue while I appreciate that. There will be some in Spanish what about tag along? What about the enemies and Japanese Amen, Chris, you're right on the band stems from growing concerns about plastic pollution in the ocean. Plastic seems discreet and sturdy. When you're holding it, but it breaks down into small chunks, and then becomes an intractable pollution problem. Eight either ends up inside of marine animals who mistake it for food or coagulate into giant flotillas of trash now circling the glow. Plastic foam is considered particularly bad because it blows out of reach like the free single use plastic bags that have already been banned in California. Groups that volunteer to clean up beaches, including the surfrider and the San Diego coast keeper finds more plastic debris than anything else. Much of plastic foam. How much is coming out of TJ baby. How much of it is coming out of OC baby. How much of it is coming out of LA how much of his come on. You guys wanted to do something to feel really Barton. So you guys voted. Yes. This is hilarious. You new city council members that voted yes. To stick it to your communities. You're going to rue the day. You did it you're going to rue the day. You did it now won't matter because you get all this union compensation common in you, get all the money the shady money coming in from the activist groups from Soros and company. I get it. I understand it. But you business owners are going to understand what happens with their bottom lines. And then you're gonna come crying around say within is going gonna hurt community. You know, what shame on you for not doing your due diligence. Ladies and gentlemen, is a sad day. This is a black day. This is a dark day. This is a day with a very sad face over it on the calendar because you have city council people that aren't even qualified to understand the impact on business, and yet they are going to administer billions of dollars in budget money, and they're not qualified to scratch a lot of ticket Brentwood herbal show.
