"March first and thanks again for joining me after a little hiatus. They're actually do want to address that right away because it is something. Been giving a lot of thought to so far. And i have to confess. It is tough to keep the show going. It's just a lot of work trying to put out a show every single day. well now. it's only three days a week because they had to cut it back and sometimes i just wonder how many people listen because download. Statistics are just so. They're not very good yet. So it's hard to tell how many people actually do listen. I feel like what. I be better off writing by be better off. Making quick news daily like an online newspaper science just doing like a writing thing or online newspaper might also switched to like a once. Weekly show something like that just to try to break up the work a little bit. I just don't necessarily want to be talking to. Maybe i dunno just myself or even if it's a couple people appreciate you but it is just so much work to record. That's really where. I get hung up recording editing whereas if i could just write articles you know maybe i can do this a lot quicker but i don't wanna give a platform this hard after a year now. Don't i still have some tricks up my sleeve so the episode sound different in the future. Just trying stuff out to see if i can somehow make the recording editing process. Go smoother in any case. Thanks for your patience in for tuning in he can always feel free to email me quick news daily at gmail.com to let me know what you think about the future or message me on social media. Instagram twitter facebook. I will get those and look at those getting right into today. Let's start with the headline. you might have seen about evictions right now. The justice department is actually appealing a ruling by a us judge in texas who decided that their eviction. Moratorium cdc one. That biden is guiding judges. Saying that they don't have the power to do that and it's overstepping their boundaries. So it's a little scary. I imagine for people who are You know in a tough spot trying to make their payments in to sort of have this small. Are we going to be okay. Are we not going to be okay with this ruling as for right now. The justice department said quote. This decision does not extend beyond the particular plaintiffs in the case and it does not prohibit the application of the cdc's eviction moratorium to other parties. The basically if you're not involved in the case currently doesn't involve you're still not going to be evicted at least through. June judge also said that because the cd's doing this to stop the spread of coronavirus. He says that there's no evidence of that so far. But the justice department is saying that this was backed up by congress last december and that quote by preventing people from becoming homeless or having to move into more crowded housing. Moratorium helps to slow the spread of covid nineteen. So that's currently in appeal. So we'll have to keep watching that story for any updates. Some covert vaccine news. The fda gave emergency use authorization to the johnson and johnson covid vaccine. Cdc has recommended so history. Bution is scheduled to start. Almost immediately as i briefly went over in the past the main differences between the johnson and johnson vaccine in say the visor. Moderna vaccines are. Johnson and johnson is one dose. It's easier to store. It doesn't need those super cold. Temperatures so far it's been eighty five percent effective at preventing severe disease and at least in the trial. One hundred percent effective at preventing deaths from covid nineteen which are really the most important stats provides faster. Protection takes about two weeks to be prevented from getting a moderate to severe case of and after four weeks. There have been no hospitalizations reported or deaths. Obviously lastly there is a lower risk compared to pfizer moderna of those allergic reactions. The nfl access cases. Those are already rare with those but in this one in the study there was one case of nfl axis in forty four thousand people as for what causes these differences. This one is made with viral vector technology. According to the cnn article quote a common cold virus called dna virus. Twenty six is genetically engineered so that it can infect cells but it won't replicate there cannot spread in the body and won't give people cold like the pfizer and moderna vaccines delivers genetic instructions. Instead of being carried in little lipid balls the genetic instructions are injected by the weakened virus into arm cells. Name make the pieces that would like part of the coronavirus spike protein. Which is the knob shaped structure that the virus uses to connect to cells so no marin a it uses this dina virus to get into our bodies and get our bodies used to resolve this article in. Cbs astra zeneca vaccine. But honestly it just seems like a pr move like doesn't seem that impressive designer of the astrazeneca vaccine is saying that the plug in place order thing we can easily update it in very quickly then when he read. They still won't have that until the fall. It's basically like the same cycle for a regular flu shot because it's like the same technology so personally. I don't know if i'd be out there bragging about how quick we can switch this out and updated if it's still until fall. I don't know how long it would take to switch out the fighter in and moderna vaccines. I thought i read earlier. That the marna is much easier because it's like straight up injecting the virus. It doesn't have to wait to sort of replicated or grow at somehow again obviously. I don't know specifics. On that. But i do believe that would be faster than this one so i don't know why this articles out there on saturday. Virginia became the sixteenth state in the nation. In the first in the south even though it's kind of weird to think of them as a southern state but they were the capital of the confederacy. They became the sixteenth state to legalize recreational marijuana. The bill did pass on straight party lines. Democrats voted for it. Republicans voted against it but even with that some democrats still have issues. And i don't know if you can blame him for most of these her one. The bill says that the specifics of the regulations won't be decided until next year though. Virginia is weird and it has elections the year after a presidential election. Right now democrats have a one vote advantage in. The senate defy vote advantage in the house. So obviously they're worried that republicans will win this year and they'll get to decide the regulations next year. I should go back and say these specifics of the law. Which says that legalizes. The use of cannabis by people over the age of twenty one starting in twenty twenty four when retail markets would be established law would also allow possession up to an ounce by anyone over twenty one and people under the age of twenty one would face a twenty five dollars civil penalty in have to undergo treatment. Thirty percent of the marginal tax revenue will go to fund would try to help communities who are historically over police for marijuana related crimes so one of the other worries that these democrats and also the aclu are worried about is that the bill focuses too much on creating profits for businesses and it doesn't really focus on racial justice aspect hidden preventing people from getting arrested for these marijuana related crimes in ruining their life. Now i'm not sure. If i one hundred percent agree with that like i'm sure it does focus more on the business aspect but i think maybe that might be the way to tackle this because sadly in america we are really focused on corporations and businesses in general and making profits for them so if you let these businesses make big money and they get used to that and they won't want their customers getting arrested so the politicians that they support will suddenly magically support more legalization because they know they won't be getting campaign contributions from these businesses. They're locking up their customers. You know though it is sort of a backwards way to attack it. But i think if they play it right could lead to fewer arrests now. Obviously i don't know all the specifics of it but that's just my initial thoughts on that. In any case virginia will be getting that but in any case it looks like one way or another marijuana will be legalized in virginia. At some point do want to quickly touch on the situation in myanmar or burma. According to the united nations human rights office at least eighteen people were killed on sunday and more than thirty were wounded because the myanmar police or military. That seized power started using live ammunition on crowds of peaceful protesters. That is not okay. Ever anywhere ever edition to these live rounds. The police also used tear gas to disperse the protesters not only going after protesters. According to the un military also arrested eighty five medical personnel and students as well as seven journalists. So i don't know how long the rest of the world can sit back and let all of this happen but it seems like we need to do something in this would be an appropriate place to do it. It's not like we're going there for their oil or something you literally would just be. There be literally would just be going to preserve democracy. Think we need to help in a bigger way than we are so far.

You hardly look waken say it going in shorts and a little bit higher, But it just appears unsustainable. Yet the inventory drawdowns been a bit more than we thought.

We broke below 60 right now in the electronic session, 59 95 w t I, the other thing that markets are keenly focused on the virus and obviously the vaccination process from where you sit in Melbourne. I know that that's an entirely different situation than what we've been dealing with here in the States. Big picture you positive that we have turned a corner. Positive. Turning the corner obviously is a health issue and on the sun damage and we're working with it all but looking through it into 22 23. As the the back chains of road and they different back change with different jurisdictions. Globally. We can say that will be travel hubs and travel bubbles, whatever your terminology forming in the back of it. So that the reflection try that started in November is justifiable. Whatever it takes policy prescription to support it. They will be hiccups along the way. But, yes, way say it structurally positive. On this obviously Tibbits along the way, there's obviously had winds along the way.

That's what we're trying to do with China set. Where are those earnings going to be expanding going forward?

How much further I guess support do experts expect from central banks and we heard yesterday when you look at Australia, CBS, saying there could be an adjustment to the your target as early as August from the RV. That's kind of more of a positive spin there.

So you know how the U S. Yeah, yelling, obviously the U. S treasury and regard they are the best communicators in the world they need today.

"The Friday News round up on one A. We're hearing from Nancy Yusef from the Wall Street Journal. Joyce Carol, Washington correspondent for the National and Indira Lakshmanan, senior executive editor at National Geographic. In Myanmar Police have now filed several charges against the country's elected civilian leader on Song Souci. This follows the military coup on Monday. The exact whereabouts of the Nobel Peace Prize winner remain unclear. She has not been seen nor has the country's president since the military seized power. Indira. There has long been tension between the military and the government. Talk to me about the timing. Why did the army choose this moment to do this? Yeah, well, um as the listeners to this show, or where, in November, just a couple months ago on Sun Suit, Cheese National League for Democracy and L D, the main opposition party won more than 77%. Of the seats in parliament in what international observers were calling the country's first free and fair election. Well, first in 2010. That was the first free and fair election in 25 years. Now, 10 years later, they want an even bigger amount of support, which was there for giving on San Souci in a way Backing and a mandate for the kinds of reforms and lessening of the military's role that she has been pushing for cause. Remember in these last 10 years suit she has You know, sort of been running the country, but not really. She's been a state councilor alongside the Myanmar military, which has maintained significant power. In some ways, you know, she has really tainted her reputation in the eyes of the world. As you mentioned she was a Nobel Peace Prize winner for her very brave and determined willingness to be in her home country. When she could have been sitting pretty and safely in Britain. She had a British husband and kids, but instead, she came back to her home country and endured Many, many years of house arrest in her fight for democracy. But in the last few years she's tainted that reputation by supporting the Myanmar military not only at home but in international courts in what most of the world considers to be a genocide of the Muslim Rohingya minority People in me and Mar Bond. She went along with it and basically endorsed it and said it was not a genocide campaign. But I think the spark for this at this point was that the military didn't want her to have this mandate to roll back their power, Limited and move Maurine the direction of parliamentary democracy. And they've arrested her. They've charged her with some pretty thin charges about you know, Importing some walkie talkies on day have absolutely no proof that the November elections were falsified and fraudulent, which is what they've been claiming, and U. S. Officials have now weighed in late On Thursday, President Biden made his first public remarks on the military takeover. And he called out those in power just to note U. S official policy is to use the country's former name of Burma. They say that they use Myanmar as a courtesy in certain communications. But here's what President Biden said the Burmese military should relinquish power they have seized Release the advocates and activist and officials they have detained, lift the restrictions on telecommunications and refrain from violence. Nancy President Biden also threatened new sanctions. We know the United Nations has also condemned the coup. What's the latest that we know about what exactly is unfolding on the ground in Myanmar? And what happens next? So let's start with on the ground. We've seen that the government is blocked Facebook after residents there started posting photos of people banging pots and pans and support of on sushi on Santucci of people hold up three fingers, Hunger games reference, signaling resistance. And it's a big deal there because Facebook is used by half the population is the most dominant social media platform. And, of course, um, it's signals and effort to suppress any protest. This is Relatively, Um uh On the streets of Milan, where we haven't seen protests. I think the way that some would expect out of fear and this was sort of the first step towards speaking out and the military controlled government shut that down immediately. You mentioned sanctions earlier in the world response. What's been interesting as we've seen sort of two tranches of responses. If you will, from the U. S and the EU and France. We've seen a demand that that the On song She she and her colleagues be released. But we've seen from other countries in the region in particular, stop short of that and say that they want the Sustainment of sort of a democratic system in Myanmar. The most. I think important response comes from Japan because they have close ties with Myanmar, and in the last years, Japanese businesses have expanded their investment there. We saw protests in Tokyo in response to what happened. They're calling for their government to do more, but from the government's perspective, they see sanctions as something that could push me and mark closer to China. And what was interesting is the top government spokesman there sidestepped that question about whether they Japanese government would support sanctions. And so I think Japan will be the leader in terms of setting the world reactions. Response. In Myanmar specifically whether sanctions are effective. And, uh, um, effective response or not, and remind our listeners that saying passed sanctions were against the very military commanders who who launched this coup so that certainly as a data point, an indicator of How effective they could be well. Meanwhile, a crackdown in Russia has also caught the world's attention. Street protests last weekend led to more than 5000 people being arrested on Tuesday, Another 1400 people were detained for supporting jailed opposition leader Alexei Navalny. America's new Secretary of state, Tony Blinken, was asked earlier this week to respond to allegations made by the Kremlin of quote unquote gross interference by the United States. Here's what he told NBC's Andrea Mitchell. The Russian government makes a big mistake. If it believes that this is about us, it's not. It's about them. It's about the government. It's about the frustration. That the Russian people have with corruption with kleptocracy should the U. S sanction the backers of Vladimir Putin as punishment for what has already happened to the volley. Actually, we're revealing a serious of Russian actions that are deeply deeply disturbing, Nancy. We know President Biden had his first phone call with Putin last week. We know he's taken a tougher stance. You hear Blinken saying they're reviewing all of these actions. How much pressure can the U s exert right now? Well, that's an interesting question, because, um, technically, we could see more sanctions on on Russian response to this. Um, but the balance I think is on one hand supporting democratic exercises of speech and other processes happening in Russia. At the same time, you'll hear Russians exploit that and say, and call Navalny, a Russian agent in their push to signal to their population that Navalny does not speak for for the Russian people. And so I think that's the sort of fine line that the U. S will find itself. Trying to walk. I think in the most in the more immediate period, we could see more sanctions, but again are those effective and stopping what Russia seizes as one of the biggest threats to Putin's Putin's tenure. Reminder. We are speaking with Nancy Yusef from the Wall Street Journal. Joyce Karen, Washington correspondent for the National, and Indira Lakshmanan, senior executive editor at National Geographic, while another piece of news from Russia that gave some reason to pause last year, Russia was the first to claim It had come up with a covert 19 vaccine this week. Results published by The Lancet in the UK said that the Sputnik five vaccine gives around 92% protection against covert 19. We've pulled this clip from August of last year. That just gives you an idea of how quickly Russia moved on developing a vaccine. CNN spoke then to cure. Oh, the Mitri a view was chief executive officer of the Russian Direct Investment Fund, which backed Sputnik fives, development. I've given it, Toto off my 74 year old parents. So time will tell. If it doesn't work. You'll be building a major embarrassment. Flower tells ministry lots of people jobs will build the line and you have to understand. How do you get the bureaucrats in the health Ministry to approve something like this? Unless the science is really solid unless the tracker profound platform is very solid. Choice.
