The UK government has failed to offer a plan for growth according to the head of Britain's biggest business lobby group, speaking to us here on Bloomberg daybreak, Europe, the CBI's director general Tony danker, said he hopes the Chancellor will revise his plans. What we're dealing with is stagflation, right? It's both its negative growth and rocketing high inflation. And so yes, we have good relations with the government. But I think it's my job to remind them that you can't choose. You can't just say, let's fight inflation, not do anything about growth or vice versa. So I think we need a plan that does both. I think both these gentlemen leading the government and this government are indeed pro growth, but we haven't yet had the measures to drive Britain forward. That's what I hope we'll hear more about today.

"We are dealing with campaign 2022 and former president Trump has set off a scramble this evening in the Republican Party. He is talking about upending the midterm elections by announcing in roughly half an hour or so about his 2024 bid on the eve of voting. He's got a speech tonight on behalf of JD Vance in that Ohio Senate race in Dayton, Ohio and people are now trying to figure out what the president is up to here, whether he would officially announce his candidacy for president in 2024 tonight, breaking a promise, if you will, that he had with some Republican members that he would wait until after the midterm elections to do that. We were talking to a reporter from the hill just earlier this hour, and she said he would perhaps have a disruptive effect on the Georgia Senate race and some others. So we're waiting now all eyes or many eyes on Dayton, Ohio, will Donald Trump announce that he's running for president tonight instead of waiting until sometime after the election.

"Of people, France from record monsoon rain Santa glacial mills have affected over 30 million people and killed almost 1400, both the government and UN secretary general Antonio Guterres have blamed climate change for this extreme weather. For more, I'm joined by foreign bakari Pakistan correspondent for the Financial Times. Welcome to the program. First, start by giving us an update on the situation. For example, this power station, I mentioned it's in the Sindh region in the southwest of the country. How bad is the situation over there? This is around the city known as dadu historic city rather large city in sand and what's happening here is an example of a much bigger challenge. The power station in question supplies electricity to dadu city and 5 other regions close by. So it's not the national grid, but it suggests it tells us that a similar situation could repeat itself elsewhere, of course we are still in the midst of more rainfall excessive rainfall before and September. Maybe even going into October. So it's a pretty dire situation already 40 million people or more than the population of many countries around the world and almost a 5th of Pakistan's population. That's the number of people who've been. Uprooted who have either been forced to leave their homes, their area or at least moved into post to move into tents and accept temporary accommodation. There are already reports of food shortages from some areas and the biggest concern for farmers, especially, but also nationally is that Pakistan's farmers would not be able to sow their winter wheat crop where the sewing begins in about two months time. Many of the fields are heavily silted, even though floodwaters have receded. There are shortages of seed and fertilizers, there are other practical, very practical problems as well. So in the midst of this, this is I'm afraid in Pakistan's 75 year history. This is probably the biggest emergency in the true sense of the word that this country has ever witnessed. It's an absolutely dire situation. What are the Pakistani governments priorities when it's trying to deal with this disaster? Where is its focus? Immediate focus obviously has to be and must be on saving lives. So for now, it's a relief relief relief. Providing food and shelter to the victims, but not too far behind. In fact, very close behind is also the need for healthcare emergency healthcare facilities because there are reports of dengue outbreaks from parts of Pakistan. There are also other reports of other waterborne diseases spreading quite widely unconfirmed reports from some Pakistan parts of Pakistan have also spoken of malaria. So all sorts of challenges and of course let's not forget this is a country which has historically had trouble with raising its literacy level, but suddenly with the flood in almost a third of Pakistan, there are reports of many school buildings that have been destroyed or partially damaged. So the question is, where would the kids go to school for now among poverty stricken people, the kids are mostly at home and barely surviving? Is there much discussion yet about what Pakistan could do to get prepared for the future as the climate change certainly means something like this may well happen again. This is a profound question, a question that has been discussed very frequently among the decision makers, the so called ruling class, but I think the seems to be an absence of the center of emergency at the popular level. This is a question that Pakistanis across the board need to engage with now, you can't delay the discussion or this kind of discussion for long. There are four costs that as opposed to the rainfall this year excessive rainfall in about three to four years Pakistan might actually become a water scarce country, which is the other challenge. So the question is, how does Pakistan prepare itself for that eventuality? And the mother of all evils or the parent of all evils to use a gender neutral term is, of course, population this is a country which simply can't control or hasn't been able to control its population growth. Other Islamic countries have been more successful like Indonesia or even Bangladesh, but Pakistan has failed in that area. So I think a very urgent question ought to be, how do you tackle this population bulge? This is a country already with more than 220 million people and growing faster than it ought to, very big issues to tackle foreign bakari Financial Times correspondent to their thank you for joining us here on Monica 24.

It follows the Supreme Court's ruling that Ruto was elected properly, several petitions had been seeking to annul the result of the election that took place back in August. I'm joined by novena couture and multimedia journalist based in Nairobi, navina good morning to you. Good morning. Could you tell us about the mood in the capital today? I think people are quite happy that this is this long extended election period. Uncertainty who is going to be the new president is coming to an end. Today, it has been spontaneously declared a bank holiday. So I think most people are quite happy about that. And people are quite anxious to see what measures mister Ruto will announce, considering the challenges that lie ahead in the country, both economically as well as politically. What is the expected, what is the speculation like at the moment, what we will be hearing from ruta first. I mean, he has said that the price for one of the staple foods Mays flower will come down in the coming weeks after he's been sworn in today. He's also said that the price of fertilizer that has gone up in the last couple of months has doubled in some places tripled over the last month since the war in Ukraine broke out. He will try to bring that down. But I think we just have to see how much fiscal space he has to basically subsidize food, subsidize, fertilizer, and possibly also subsidize fuel that has become very expensive here. Because he will also be confronted with a budget and we'll have to decide whether to service the debt that the country owes its foreign predators or to restructure. There is no talk of restructuring right now. But that's another challenge considering that he will have to deal with fairly soon. Let's talk about ruta is vision for the future. The future place of Kenya in the world shortly. But before that, can you tell me about how strong his position is at the moment? As we mentioned already, already Russo won the election narrowly. He got 50.5% off the vote. How strong will his position be as president? I think it depends a bit on how he plays his political cards. I mean, after the election, we saw he did win it very narrowly, but he did win it. I think having not the backing, but a clear analysis by the constitutional Supreme Court that this election was one freely and fairly, and that he did get the majority of the votes and came over 50% will help him. I think it has also helped him with his on a diplomatic perspective with European creditors and other governments who do see him as a legitimate new president. And then what we saw was also that in the parliamentary elections, people who ran on an independent candidate ticket have joined his party and are prepared to work for him. So I think it will depend on how well he is at building coalitions. So far, he's been a very sort of astute political communicator and operator, but I think we just have to wait and see how he manages to get parliament behind him, how he manages to build coalitions within the country. For example, Russo's rival and former prime minister royal law dean got accused him of election fraud, which is a claim. The Supreme Court dismissed. How divided is the political landscape in Kenya at the moment? I think the political landscape is to certain extent divided and people are concerned about William bruto as a person. And the issues that have been associated with him in the past, one issue is corruption related and questions how

"I'm David brancaccio in New York, Senate Democrats got a big win yesterday with the passing of their sweeping healthcare and climate Bill. It has tax and other incentives to push clean energy and efficiency. The bill also lets Medicare negotiate the price of some prescription drugs and includes a 15% corporate minimum tax, but a persistent loophole favored by hedge fund managers was not in the end touched. This is the tax rate on what's called carried interest income, marketplaces Kristen Schwab reports. Carried interest income is the money private equity and hedge fund managers get when their investments are sold for a profit. This compensation is taxed as a long-term capital gain. In other words, it's taxed at a lower rate than regular income. But only if it's held for at least three years. Senate Democrats wanted to change that benchmark to 5. Critics call carried interest income attacks loophole for the wealthy. Private equity lobbyists say it's essential to economic growth. Former president Donald Trump Warren Buffett and others have supported ending this special tax treatment. So the industry spending in Washington has skyrocketed, with campaign contributions and ad spending growing from $15 million to more than 220 million in about 15 years.

Production of iHeartRadio. Hey, brain stuff, Lauren Volga bomb here, with another classic podcast episode. In this one, we delve into the important topic of why some dog ears are so heck and floppy. And how it benefits them in the field. Hey, brain stuff, Lauren vogelbaum here. When two convicts pulled a Shawshank Redemption in 2015 and tunneled out of the Clinton county correctional facility in upstate New York, a two year old bloodhound named Ginny was hot on their trail. Working with James pedalin from the rensselaer county New York search and rescue team, Ginny and a number of other canines used their noses to scour the vast adirondack region, hoping to pick up the escapees sent. Pelino said of bloodhounds in an interview with an Albany New York television station, they never make a sound on the trail. All this loose skin helps hold the scent. Bloodhounds with their floppy skin and gangly ears are the quintessential tracking dogs, and there's good reason. While all types of dogs, including German shepherds and Labrador retrievers, can sniff out convicts cadavers and victims of disasters, the dogs with floppy ears seem to be the best at what they do. But for one thing, regardless of breed, dogs have amazing noses. With more than 220 million olfactory receptors, experts say a dog's sense of smell is thousands of times more sensitive than a human's. In 2009, researchers at Pennsylvania state university created a computer model of canine's nose to better understand how dogs smell. They reported in the journal of the Royal Society interface that each nostril pulls in air about 5 times every second. The dog it seems knows which nostril is pulling in the scent, allowing them to turn right or left when tracking. Moreover, receptors continue to hold on to scent molecules even after the dog exhales. But that being said, dogs with floppy ears such as bloodhounds, coon hounds, and basset hounds are exceedingly good trackers. That's because their long ears act as catchers mitts, scooping up invisible scent particles on the trail and sweeping them toward the nose. The scent particles also get trapped in the folds of wrinkly skin on their faces, allowing the dog to carry reference samples as they hunt.

"Was a big year for scammers. According to a new report from the Better Business Bureau. Americans had more than $220 million stolen from them last year, a 33% increase from 2019, CBS News correspondent Anna Werner says. Make sweepstakes and lottery scams are getting more sophisticated. The interesting thing is the BBB, says the number of complaints actually went down last year. But the amount of money lost went way up. And families like the one you're about to meet are the victims. I never would have thought my dad would be susceptible or This. It really shocked me. Kathy Chapman can't believe her 84 year old dad fell victim to a sweepstakes scams. It started with calls to his Michigan home in January, she says from someone who claimed to be from Publishers clearing house. They told him he'd won money and more just like the people in those familiar ads in his case. $2.5 million brand new BMW and Goldman delegates. All he had to do was pay some taxes and fees. But after he withdrew thousands of dollars at multiple locations, his credit union alerted police who called his daughters and when they asked him about it, he said, I just have to pay some taxes and fees and then I'm going to get this big prize, and I said No, Dad. That's not how it works. Chapman discovered her dad had been instructed by the scammers to mail them packages of cash in all he lost $72,000. I'm still really angry. He's done nothing to anybody. You know, he's worked hard his whole life. And got taken advantage of this is huge organized crime, business and better business bureau investigator Steve Baker says. Those scammers are professionals, his report says. Those con artists often talk to victims every day building trusting relationships. They take careful notes of the victim's family and try to isolate them from family and friends. And they'll use any method they can. Sometimes it's through the US mail, text messages emails social media like this fraudulent email claiming to be from publishers clearing house with photos of winners and a message from the board chairman. But a closer look reveals clues like typos, for example, how the company pleases to advice. It's supposed winners of their delivery and presentation date. Preserving with Publishers Clearinghouse, an email a call any contact a letter that says you've won a prize, but you have to send money, rip up the letter, hang up the phone and reported to law enforcement because that's a scam a scam, Chapman says, took much of her father's life savings. I want to prevent this from happening to somebody else, you know, just to tell people you need to be suspicious. Well, if you've lost money to a scam, report it to the better business bureau, the FTC and your local law. Enforcement that will help them track some of this down. But remember, if somebody says you have to pay money to win. It's a scam.

I'm Jeff Pooja look Well, technically, not a state of the Union address, President Biden went before a joint session of Congress last night's to mark his 1st 100 days in office. Joining me now is a B C's Andy field. And what was the president's overarching message? Well, the message was that basically the country was on fire when he walked on the door, and he's done a pretty good job of putting it out. He wants to keep doing that. Despite the fact that Republicans don't like what they're hearing from President Biden poll after poll after the speech yesterday shows the overwhelming number of Americans did like what they heard. But of course, there's not a whole lot not to, like when someone is standing up there, saying here's a whole bunch of free stuff. I'm going to give you why wouldn't you like it free education for kids in preschool free education for two years of community college? New roads, new bridges, Internet new pipes, all kinds of things that are fantastic, but they cost something and that's where the big sticking point is because President Biden says he wants to pay for it by taxing the rich and Republicans don't seem to have actually, anyway to pay for it. They don't think they need to do all this stuff. They just wanna build roads, bridges and trains and say that's infrastructure and be done with it. Ever since he was elected president Biden's been pulled in two different directions. Now, if you look at his career, you could probably Really describe him as a moderate. But ah, lot of the progressives in the Democratic Party seemed to get what they want last night. They did, and certainly is good for progressives in the party. But it's good for a lot of people who don't have some of the advantages of some of the wealthier people in the country. The president's proposals. When it comes to Texas. You know, the Republicans saying, this is extreme. This is terrible. It's far less than what most wealthy Americans and certainly corporations were tags. When Donald Trump came into office, I think the tax rate was upwards for corporations upwards of 30, some 1%. Maybe 35% of the exact number of they basically chop that tree down to 23%. Joe Biden just wants to get it back up to, you know, just below 30%. Significantly lower than it was before. But at that rate you congrats. Erbil. Yin's upon billions of dollars to pay for all this infrastructure that he wants to pay for. The Republicans have never met a tax they liked. Never had a tax cut that they wanted to repeal. And that is an issue there, because no one as a real good compromise and how to pay for all this. The problem here is, Are they going to do it with a bipartisan majority back and forth, or are they going to do it like they did with the covert relief plan was Was through reconciliation is kind of arcane law that says the Senate can pass it with just one vote, and the Democrats can do that, if they wanted to. And Joe Biden may actually picked that choice because he only has a very short window of opportunity to get everything done because if the Republicans pick up seats in the next election in the midterm election, that means that the Democratic majorities could wither or disappearing entirely and in the House and Senate That's a B C's Andy Field, talking with Cuomo's Jeff Postell affirm or of the conversation, subscribe to the Coma politic cast available at co Moh news dot com slash podcasts or on your favorite podcast app. President Biden, saying he was not given any heads up before federal investigators raided the New York City apartment of Rudy Giuliani.
