"18, a youth team moment when I was so surprised when I got outside and I can not see green is very grass, whatever the reason for that, but this is very, very unprofessional. I have a completely different expectation how this should play in this league on this level. Should get hushed Uber. Get lost. I mean, yes, because you're only saying this because you ended up losing, I'm sure if you won the game, it's probably an afterthought. You would have made a sly come in here and there. Like, we even beat this team in an ice rink, whatever you may want. And I wish we could show you the video footage, but we don't have rights. I don't know if I mentioned that. They tied. They tied. Apologies, one one, but I've played in it actual snow infested field. The snow classico, a march for the U.S. men's national team against Costa Rica, and I know what it's like to actually not even see the lines, not even see the ball, how heavy the ball could be, trying to transport the ball from one section to field to another. That didn't seem like the case when I was watching at home. It did look like the visibility in certain aspects of it, you could see snow, but it looked like ice, I don't think it affected the style of play. I don't think it affected the players or the overall product that much. So I'm going to say get lost, but yes, stadiums nowadays, especially one of my favorite stadiums like aliens field. Should it be capacitated where they have a heating system underneath, or at least plows with people trying to supply it where you can have some sort of visibility. So I understand that. So he shoot good lost. If he doesn't like playing snow, he should go and be a manager in Brazil, right? Go be a manager in league I am making. That's going to happen. That's eventually going to happen. And you have to deal with it. Your players have to be ready for it. You have to be ready for it. And if the home team is not able to remove this node to your standards, by the way, the only standards that matter aren't the coaches, it's a referees. If the player is not well, if the referee is deemed that the field is unplayable, they don't play. Exactly. And the referees do an inspection alongside Major League Soccer officials, and they made the call that the field was okay. To play. So if you don't like the snow, go managing Brazil. That's the easiest. The easiest is that, right? Come on, man. It's

research and data on some of the 2000 companies and 130 industries our analysts cover worldwide On Paul Sweeney Alex Steele is off today Coming up we look at the impact of regulatory relief on prices of oil and natural gas plus March Madness control $1.2 billion in ads But first let's talk the Russian Ukraine war It has introduced a level of uncertainty into all financial markets across the world And that includes the global foreign exchange business We're talking about the currency trading For more on that I'm joined by Bloomberg intelligence chief G ten FX strategist Audrey child Friedman Audrey thanks so much for joining us here So as we think about this war which is you know we're into week four coming up A lot of real dynamics coming into different marketplaces Talk to us about the FX market What are you seeing over the last several weeks The main story that's come across is that European currency blocks have been the most exposed in the situation in the war in Ukraine We've seen significant move lower in Europe as the U.S. dollar But also in what are called high beta European currencies like the Swedish krona Sterling all underperform on the performing the U.S. dollar On the other side of the spectrum we also see commodity currencies doing really well Which usually doesn't necessarily happen in the time when the risk market is a risk of environment But this time around is very much driven by this spike high within commodity prices So The O.C. dollar the New Zealand dollar Canadian dollar as well have also been extremely resilient The Russian ruble has been all over the place Just give us a sense of how that currency has reacted over the last several weeks Well there's no liquidity there's no trading on that currency and it's obviously the first currency that would have been exposed But they are arbitrarily in the European eastern currency blog like the Polish lossy or the check crona that would also have also been extremely vulnerable and have underperformed significantly in the EM currency space All right so for the U.S. dollar I've heard some commentary of reds some news about the ability of the U.S. dollar to remain the dominant currency throughout the world for global trade What are your thoughts there There's been more and more talk about dollarization and the role of the dollar as the questioning of the role of the dollar as a Central Bank currency with the and what I would say here is that we are more likely to see a continuation on the acceleration of the regionalization of currency as opposed to degeneration And what I hear is that the dollar dominant on the international monetary system in my opinion is unchallenged for the time being I mean the dollar stock from a very high basis is still have nearly 60% of dollar reserve in Central Bank to the dollar in terms of the international debt market still represents about 62% turnover in global FX turnover We have more than 40% in dollar So the dollar remains dominant But what we see is that the war in Ukraine the change in geopolitics means that some of the current training partners will now use other currencies and the dollar like Russia China trade now there's more and more talk that the UN will be become a dominant currency in trade And that kind of actually this is not him This is a process that has been ever since 2014 and yet annexation of Crimea We have seen since then we've seen the Russian particular dropping the dollar in terms of the other currency to training And I think the process and Euro and the UN are the two currencies that will benefit the most And the process would just be accelerated by the war and the sanction that we've seen taken against Russia So for Russia has there foreign currency reserves have they been frozen How does that actually work Yeah so the effects currency the Russian FX currencies have been frozen that means that there is no dollar access for those for the Central Bank of Russia So expecting Russia in a very difficult situation in terms of meeting obligation and international obligations and payments And this is how.

Soccer Players Might Have More Emotional Outbursts With Audiences
"Players have had to adjust to matches without fans during this pandemic. But what impact does that have on how they play? NPR's Casey? Morale reports? Soccer matches have sounded a little quieter during the pandemic. Take this Major league soccer game from August. Orlando City midfielder Nani Moves toward goal shoots six beautifully Any scores. And while there's cheering, it's all from players. What's missing is the roar of the crowd. Meg Linnehan of the athletic attended a few of these so called ghost games in the National Women's Soccer League and says gameplay just felt different without the influence of fans when players air fighting for 50 50 ball right along the sidelines, and there's just usually there would be people right there. Yelling and trying to influence the outcome of that event. And instead, it's just kind of these two players really in their own little world and teammates yelling at them now to sports buffs who happened to be neuroscientists have taken a deeper look at whether empty stadiums influence players behaviors on the field. It was a good excuse to watch soccer and to reproach. The matches from the weekends. Michael Lightner and his colleague Fabio Richland of the University of Salzburg in Austria Rewatched 20 matches from their local team. Red Bull, Salzburg. 10 from before the pandemic, with fans and 10 from ghost games without them as they watched the catalog players, emotional behaviors, things like whether a player yelled at the ref after a call or shook his head after missing a big chance. Overall, they observed significantly fewer emotional outbursts during ghost games. Richland has a theory why the fence like an amplifier in certain situations. If there's a foul or something going on, and 20 or 30,000 people screaming, then, for sure you jump up and yell at your opponent, and you probably do this less or a little bit less if there are no fence there. In fact, the emotional outburst that did take place in Ghost games tended to be less confrontational than in games with fans in attendance. The scientists also think home field advantage could be smaller. Without those screaming fans. Here's Lightner. There seems to be something making the way teams perform significantly better without the home fence. They'll tackle that question. Next. The current work appears in the journal Humanities and Social Sciences Communications. And while they know their study just looked at one team in one league, both Lightner and Richland say they wouldn't be surprised if the same was seen in other soccer leagues around the world.

August twenty seven twenty twenty the day after the Milwaukee Bucks and players from the NBA WNBA NFL.

Playoff Games pending further action. You're excited I. Know You're excited for sports to return obviously, this season has been one of a kind and unprecedented in. So many ways I want to know how do you feel now the players are using their platform in this way to be honest I feel this very strange sense of excitement. I need some really tragic kind of set of circumstances but I have been feeling conflicted after NBA Games kind. Came back I had been motivated by occurrences like kyrie irving standing in solidarity with Wnba players saying like Oh actually, I'll pay your salary. If you don't feel like you can play whether it's you know a reaction to corona virus or your desire to protest how support seeing.

Justice for Briana told, even seeing black lives matter on jerseys and in the court kind of made me feel a little better. I realized yesterday that this was the inspiration really been waiting for but now I'm wondering what comes next of course, how were you reacting to everything? You know I'm not like the world's biggest sports fan I do. I am a fan of black women and so seeing the WNBA protests. Throughout this year, but especially, the summer that felt released significant. Still I've always hesitant to look to athletes during these like highly political moments just because it's not the job that they set out to do. But you know as I started to see people sharing statements aerial Atkins from the Washington mystics we're going to say, well, we need to say and people need to hear that.

Happen I mean it just shows. The hate people's heart. The thing is though is that as we were starting to develop this episode today so much has changed already in that the players in the NBA have agreed to return to playing the playoff season. Later, this week I don't think that all the progress is gone but I'm wondering what what happens. Now you know thought that same whiplash like I said, I felt like this was finally the type of inspiration leadership that I've been hoping to see from such a wide body players. Leaks, cross-border. It was truly abused beautiful, and I think now we need to do more I'm hoping that that since this is now on the table, players can put more pressure on owners to. Work with the people they are most connected to some of the richest and most powerful people in this nation are in the speed dial of most NBA owners even just the day if feels effective part of I, think resuming the season was the players putting pressure on the NBA to address the social unrest we've been dealing with all summer in some ways. So they started a foundation that's dedicated to investing in black causes. They're giving hundreds of millions of dollars they've given like you know the players, some approved protest phrases that they can use. They can put black lives matter on the courts and things like that and what I liked about this moment is at the NBA players were like that's what I usually do. And that's actually still not enough. So I'm hoping that we can see continued forward motion in that way something that I enjoy in this moment was seeing the NBA take the WNBA's league they have been holding it down all your curves pressing in. So many ways the thing is, is that WNBA, players, they don't make as much money as NBA players do they have really put their necks out there for social justice speaking up. Protecting black lives in many ways, it seems in some ways that they have more to lose by doing it. You know I am maybe two degrees below cautiously optimistic. That is a lot better than cynical, which is where I was before.

Pro Athletes have a platform, and in this case, they're using it to reach out directly to fans and viewers Laurie latrice Martin calls, but they're doing a strike. She teaches sociology in. African. American studies at Louisiana State University. Why striking there providing inspiration for those that are on the front line and goes they're involved in various grassroots efforts. But what about more direct financial pressure the players are withholding their labor hoping their demands will be met. That's a little trickier when they refused to play that does hurt the bottom line for leagues and team owners who could try to force change the NBA billionaires and millionaires you have.

What is your conference looking for over these next two to three weeks? That will help you. Identify the proper decision to move forward. There are any number of. Opportunities to learn which is the way we've always viewed What was it play out, so we'll go back to April. One of the guiding points and I think I've shared with you this. This comment from one of our faculty members is take as long as you can to make major decisions because you will have better information. so my comments last week over the weekend on Mardian McGee or an indication that the trends. Are Not what we desired not what we had experienced a bit earlier in the summer very much in the wrong direction, and that that's problematic. That doesn't mean that's the finish line. Things will never change. We've seen the news around cove in nineteen. alter itself in different ways over a number of weeks. And so what we've identified, it is an opportunity in late July. foreign important check in the see what our public health reality, so that's one big picture element. We were told from the beginning.
