"It may be hard to imagine now but this pandemic we're all still living through. It started a little over a year ago as a puzzle. You know at the end of december. There were reports out of china out of wuhan that there was this mystery. Pneumonia sickening dozens of people. This is hong kong based wall street journal reporter. Natasha khan close watchers of emerging infectious diseases. Were all asking themselves and asking each other. You know what was this. What is this stramonium. That's happening what information to be. No at this time. In early january twenty twenty the shanghai public health clinical center led by professor. Young xinzhong was one of the research teams looking for answers. The team set to work sequencing the virus to find out its genetic code. Thanks to dramatic improvements in genetic sequencing techniques. It didn't take a months or even weeks. It took him about forty hours. The team discovered it was a novel. Corona virus only the seventh to impact humans. The wall street journal broke the story about the virus and about the sequencing. Just to explain the sequence is basically a chemical instruction manual. The genetic code tells the virus and the human cells. At hijacks how to make itself kind of like how a series of musical notes creepy musical notes makeup piece of somber music except in this instance. The finished product is a nasty corona virus. So the team in china had this code. This manual tells us what we need to know about the makeup of the virus but as the wall street journal reported the chinese national health commission a government agency issued an internal notice to laboratories it forbade them from publishing information about the new virus without government approval but jong colleagues including professor. Edward homes at the university of sydney ignored these restrictions by january tenth two days after the journal reported on the virus the researchers released the genetic sequence to an open source web site called virological dot org and epidemiology discussion forum and they announced the publication via twitter. The release of the genome was absolutely pivotal. To more or less everything that's happened. Subsequently with this pandemic. This is jeremy fairer. He's the director of the wellcome. Trust a uk based global charity focused on health initiatives. It was absolutely crucial. That information was in the public domain and it was shed collaboratively with everybody around the world. Fair had actually taken to a corner of twitter commonly called single to herb back in early january to demand that the sars cov two genetic sequence be made public and he was one of the first praised professors jong. His team shared the sequence on an open access site. But why is the so important. Well sharing the genetic sequence started the search for vaccine that natasha contest began the very day that sequence was published. Wants a sequence came out. They were able to sort of immediately the on january tenth. Start looking at a vaccine for this virus. And so it's sort of just been quite extraordinary to see the convergence of information and technology and sort of what open source. Sharing can do the same. That i will caveat that there are of course questions about other information that wasn't disclosed potentially at the same time. Another reason it was important viruses mutate or change a little bit all the time and those changes show up in a viruses are in a having a sequence allowed researchers to track and pinpoint the mutations that followed that can be vital to tracing different variants of the virus and it can inform vaccine development. Kind of like how. We have different flu. Vaccines every season. The virus changes in researchers have to tinker with the formula and in addition to speeding up the process of creating a vaccine fairer at wellcome trust says the pandemic also changed how scientists work what they work on and how that toil is recognized for the first time i think in my life since going to the moon almost has dominated the news agenda science and scientists to be on the front page of newspapers and television and the rest of it and it's put science into a different space but with the spotlight comes more scrutiny and this transformation to making research openly available more collaboration speedier research results in faster dissemination of vital information it brings up some thorny issues for the scientists themselves. Like how accurate are these hastily prepared manuscripts and who gets credit for overlapping work. Who corners the rights to discover from the wall street journal. This is the future of everything. I'm challenge papin today on the podcast. How covid nineteen changed. The way scientists worked together and possibly the way. Science will work in the future. Fiercely independent financial professionals deserve to run their business their own way. Get the broker dealer. You need with the freedom. You crave Financial learn about our commitment to your independence at kester financial dot com slash independence. The pandemic shape shifted everything in twenty twenty including the way we work but while many businesses were slowing down. Scientists were switching into high gear thousands of biomedical researchers. Saw this as their moment. This is what they trained for like the rest of us though. They were a bit hamstrung for a time. They couldn't even get into their own labs that were shut down because of social distancing regulations when they could get in. Many academics halted their own experiments to redirect their focus onto the virus in some cases rival labs re grouped and became collaborators and scientists from different fields joined forces in adjusted the way they worked one such pair to make this pivot. Michael bats a professor at the university of pennsylvania's department of micro biology and john kerry director of the institute for immunology pange debts us focus had been on the basic science of how the body fights disease wary as concentrated on the body's immune system. How it responds to chronic infections and can sometimes to fellow dysfunction in diseases like cancer last march. That's reached out to wary after attending a board meeting to discuss how his kids school district was going to deal with the pandemic than i had been telling the school education board who who are not infectious disease specialist whatsoever that this was going to be bad and having major impacted that they needed to take this very seriously and i walked out of that meeting and i texted john and i said we have to get on top of us now and john basically texted back. I've been thinking exactly the same thing. I was on a trip. Just lockdowns happened for the first time and texted me and said you won't believe what we've got to do here where he.

"Hong Kong over the weekend. Nearly three million people voted in local district elections. That's that's seventy one percent of all eligible voters and a record for the city the results a resounding defeat to the government and a major show of support for the months old protest movement. Natasha Khan is in Hong Kong. She says from the start of voting. It was clear that this election would be different than those of the past fast so the polling started from seven thirty in the morning Thirty PM were we saw was even early in the morning up before. The polling stations opened people started queuing up so in some districts. There were people queuing up for maybe an hour and a half two hours and they were lined up around the block waiting waiting to go in and vote as the results were coming in. After the initial numbers were revealed. There was a sense of celebration on the streets yesterday that we haven't seen for quite some time you know. It's been a tense time in Hong Kong to say the least in the last six months last night there was quite a lot of joy As the people realized the impact of the voting. Natasha says the result was pretty stunning. The Pan Democratic camp had expected that they would do better than they did before but dave basically swept most of the seats. They are now in control of seventeen seventeen of the eighteen district councils. They have more than two hundred forty seats which means that they can control. WHO's on the one hundred seventeen member her delegation? That's the Election Committee that selects the Chief Executive of Hongkong and it really is a stunning message to the government and also the post opposition parties in Hong Kong. That something needs to change. She says it's not clear. How Hong Kong's current government or leaders in Beijing will react to the outcome of the vote? I think how Beijing and how the authorities in Hong Kong address the results of this Election will be really quite key to how the protests will continue. I thank you know I think right now among the protesters. There's a sense so there's a pause. It was one of those peaceful weekends we've seen in Hong Kong for a very long time and You know so. They'll be watching to see how Beijing Zhang and Hong Kong government react to these results. I think it also puts a lot of pressure on the Pro Beijing parties that suffered such a big loss yesterday. AM The elections. They'll also be under pressure to really coordinate and speaking to the government and really may be expressed a different way to to address the current political crisis. Here so make will be an interesting few weeks or days you can find all of our coverage of Hong Kong including our look at these surprising upset victory in the.

It was another another violent weekend in Hong Kong. Protesters continued to occupy the campus of Polytechnic University. Early this morning. They threw Molotov cocktails and shot arrows. Heroes at police who tried to retake the campus and at attempt to relieve tensions. The president of the University to angering gang negotiated a temporary ceasefire if the protesters to not initiate the use of force. So please will not initiate the use of force in this show. We have also also received permission.

As a way that the government said could potentially sort of manage the protests instead however however the protests have become increasingly violent A lot of people have defied dismiss ban in the past month in peaceful or violent protests alike.

It's Thursday October third. This is the PM edition of what's News From The Wall Street Journal. I'm Ameri totally and New York president trump's speaking on the South Lawn of the White House on Thursday called for Ukraine and China to investigate his political rival former vice president and Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden. The president's comments come as the house moves forward with an impeachment inquiry over trump's efforts is to persuade Ukraine's president to investigate Biden in July phone. Call our Ken. Thomas joins me now with more details from Washington DC Ken. Can you tell us a little bit more about the president's remarks on Thursday sure with the president said amounts to him doubling down on his efforts to encourage foreign countries to get involved called in investigations that could help his own reelection campaign and it fell right into this impeachment inquiry that House Democrats. That's are pursuing after his July phone call with the president of Ukraine this morning. He brought up China saying that that China should start Dr an investigation of the Biden's and he was asked if he had asked President Xi Jinping to help him and president trump said that he hadn't but it's certainly certainly something that we can start thinking about the context here. Is that Joe Biden's son Hunter Biden was involved in investment advisory visory firm that partnered with Chinese entities in twenty thirteen and that was the start of the Obama Administration Second Term Hunter Biden fighting also traveled with his father to China in that period but for Democrats and and the president's detractors bringing up China is concerning because of the timing you know you have the US and China involved extensive trade war and the two sides have made little progress on a deal since hitting an impasse last May and the president's comments come ahead of high-level level negotiations that are expected to resume in Washington next week so you know his his opponents will say that he may be trying to bring in in this notion of an investigation into the Biden's into the trade negotiations with Chinese and what are we hearing from Democrats particularly those who are pursuing pursuing the impeachment inquiry have they responded to the comments today well Democrats see this is out of bounds and and that he is essentially confirmed on the South Lawn on that he has has been pressuring the Ukraine and and now made pressure China to investigate Joe Biden the Biden campaign has has tried to aggressively push back on this. I mean Kate betting field the campaigns deputy campaign manager said this was the equivalent of trump's infamous Russia. If you're listening moment during the twenty sixteen campaign and we saw Wednesday night for Vice President Biden in Reno Nevada offering a very forceful defense of his actions in Ukraine and accusing President trump of abusing his power and trying to to smear him and his family Biden said that he wanted to make clear to trump and his quote hatchet man and the special interests involved alden him that he's not going anywhere. Biden said you're not going to destroy me and you're not going to destroy my family. We also saw Mike Pence raise the issue issue in Arizona today as well. He said the American people have a right to know if the vice president of the United States or his family have have profited fitted from his position so what we really getting now is just a elevation of Biden as the counterpoint to trump and this. This looks looks like this conflict that we're seeing is not going to stop anytime soon and this is something that we're gonNA see carried out in in the weeks ahead. That's the Wall Street read journals.

Gunman opened fire on a crowd of concert goers from a room on the thirty second floor of the hotel fifty nine people including the gunmen were killed and hundreds more were injured heard authorities in Hong Kong are expected to invoke emergency powers to ban masks at protests it would be the first invocation of a British colonial era law in half a century. The move comes after clashes between police and protesters escalated during China's National Day celebrations our Natasha Khan says it's unclear how a mask band in Hong Kong would be enforced as the clashes between protesters and police have been escalating hang of many of the protesters that have been out on the street in the last four months have often been wearing surgical masks to hide their identities or wearing a gas mask to protect themselves from tear gas us so the thinking from the authorities is that if this span was invoked that it would really give police another way in order contain the unrest protesters and police clashed and more than a dozen districts on Tuesday more than one hundred people were injured and in the first incident of its kind.

The in decades tens of thousands of demonstrators poured into the streets in some of Hong Kong's biggest districts whether it be business districts or suburban districts and really had these counter-rallies to China's massive National Day celebration. The shooting on Tuesday was the first incident of its kind since protests erupted in June all the efforts that the government has made to maybe company down for example dialogue that they held last week or the withdrawal of the tradition bill bill that sparked the entire protest movement seems that that really has done very little to quality public anger at that.

"Goldman Sachs is trying banking for the masses but it's been a struggle so this was a big departure from Goldman and it's been an expensive one so far and scammers are finding more opportunities online scammers appear to have a lot of success of finding victims on online marketplaces such as craigslist list and Ebay. We'll have the latest on the impeachment process. This is what's news from the Wall Street Journal on Kim then. Let's get started now before we take a closer look at why Goldman Sachs is struggling with it's consumer bank Marcus Marcus. It lost one point three billion dollars on it so far. Here's what you missed house. Intelligence Chair Adam Schiff said that the whistle blower at the center of the impeachment the investigation is expected to testify soon. Mr Schiff said precautions were being taken to protect the whistle blowers identity congress is currently on a two week recess which means impeachment hearings will likely start in a few weeks from Washington. Chevron Hughes has more on what this narrow impeachment inquiry could involve. We don't know I know exactly what the articles of impeachment would involve but House Democrats have sent some pretty clear signals about what they're thinking. One possible article of impeachment would relate to obstruction of justice which Adam Schiff said over the weekend would become more likely if the State Department refuses to turn over records another possible article Cole would relate to corrupt abusive power or using the power of Mr Trump's office for political gain over a potential twenty twenty rival. Both of those traditionally traditionally have constituted grounds for impeachment over the weekend. President Trump tweeted that he wanted to meet the whistleblower saying like every American he was entitled to meet his Accuser Accuser and tens of thousands of protesters poured into Hong Kong's streets yesterday for the Seventeenth Street weekend of protests from Hong Kong Natasha Khan has more what we saw yesterday was some of the most violent clashes between protesters and police in assembly of ready very vigorous protests across Hong Kong marchers vented their anger at Chinese banks smashing repainting. ATM'S UH-HUH AT Bank of China police for their part also started day off with tear gas rounds almost immediately before the march began and a fire blue dye from water cannon so on August. Today was a pretty volatile day. Natasha says the protests come ahead of a pretty big WIJK for mainland China so Tuesday is the seventieth anniversary of the founding of Communist China. It's National Day and will be celebrated the much fanfare and Beijing in fact the chief executive of Hongkong Kerry lab has just flown to Beijing as part of a delegation to celebrate those facilities. He's in Hong Kong there are going to be there's going to be a flag-raising ceremony tomorrow but we expecting and the government has announced that they will be a a bit more muted and at the same time there are a number of demonstrations that protesters are calling for across the city tomorrow so we'll be watching closely and we are. We're not really sure what will happen and the fast fashion chain forever twenty one has officially filed for bankruptcy protection. The company said it will close three hundred fifty of its eight hundred stores worldwide and exit its businesses in Asia and Europe so what led to its downfall well. One MISSTEP was at forever twenty one decided to expand and it's real estate footprint after the two thousand eight crisis that's right when many other retailers were pulling back that left it with a lot of real estate at a time when many of us have stopped shopping malls but it's not alone in the first half of this year fourteen retailers with at least twenty stores of filed for bankruptcy those include payless and gymboree came came to now our main story this morning it has to do with the future future of Goldman Sachs. The Investment Bank has been trying to attract a very different type of customer lately. These are people who are looking for traditional banking services like savings accounts. It's the retail banking effort is called Marcus but it's been struggling. Charlie Turner Has Been Finding out why from Peter Ruediger Peter Goldman Sachs has been known as the bank focused on stock trading mergers. IPO's but isn't the company pinning its hopes or at least more of its hopes on Marcus. It's consumer lender always marcus done done really since it launched in two thousand sixteen so this was a big departure from Goldman and it's been an expensive one so far so since it started making its first loans and deposits about three years ago. Marcus's ACAS lost one point three billion dollars and that's gonNA things like buying a couple of other startups data can leapfrog some of the other competitors to hiring a lot of people to staff call centers to really just sending out pieces of mail to get other people to take out one of their loan so it's been an expensive proposition so far. Goldman has had to find customers in a bid to compete with other consumer banks. Isn't it doing this through acquiring or partnering with other companies. That's right biggest banks in the country think of J. P. Morgan Chase or wells Fargo. have thousands of branches is all across the country. Goldman is a much newer bank. it's a digital bank. There's a website it doesn't have any branches so rather than kind of hang shingle on the corner and hoping somebody walks by an opening savings account it kind of has to go find the customers where they are so a credit card that with apple is one good example of that apple has one hundred million iphone users in the US what better way data can tap into a a base of young tech savvy consumers who are willing to spend then kind of offer credit card through apple some other examples that we're reporting the story. Is they're actually talking into. Aarp about maybe extending some banking services to their thirty eight million senior citizens who are AARP. Are they really counting a lot on this partnership on a credit had a card with apple where do things stand right now as it had to concede a lot of the business partnership to apple so this woman's I ever credit card because of that in order to kind of get into where some of the other big banks that have issued cards for folks like Amazon and American Airlines if Gomo wants to be on that level it in new needed a partner and apple knew it needed it it kind of get to where it wants to be so because of that there was some leverage in their relationship that apple could extract over Goldman so where do things stand with Marcus right now is Goldman in some sort regret stage or is it in the toddler stage with Marcus which is only three years old. I mean what has to happen for Marcus to stop losing so much money which I believe you. Mentioned was one point three a billion dollars one point three billion they're definitely in the toddler phase right there three years old so toddler so far what do they have to do they they have to kind of get beyond the build phase as of the programs just kind of let it run for a couple years so when you're making your first loan you have to build all kinds of systems to you know send out those pieces of mail to actually collect the payments to actually early go after delinquent borrowers and once those are built you can kind of sit back and hope that you've made the right choices in Europe models and the money could come a little bit more but you know because I've never done this before before. There are some self inflicted wounds. They've made that they may be would do differently if they had to do it over again so for instance when Marcus launched its loan program one choice that they made was not to have a team of if specialists committed to the act of collecting payments from delinquent borrowers now part of that was motivated by the fact that this is Golden Sachs who famously was called the vampire squid after the financial angel crisis headlines like Goldman Sachs sues grandma to try to recover you know delinquent loans is not something that the PR department they are really wanted to see so they're. They're a a little gun shy on doing some of that otherwise there's you know in the category of rookie mistakes. I would also say that apple card was a huge build and maybe maybe they didn't anticipate the resources that it would entail so you know in order to get this thing launched on time which debuted in August they actually had kind of repurpose in hundreds of engineers all around Goldman's projects. They are working on in other parts of the firm to be put on hold. Everybody added to come to Marquess to kind of get this apple credit card launched on time we should say that apple and Goldman declined to comment.

Hong Kong protesters attempt to restore peace after weeks of violence

"Of thousands of people once more poured into hong kong streets and supportive pro democracy protests yesterday breathing rain clad in black and waving umbrellas. Sunday's demonstration was largely peaceful from hong kong. Natasha khan has more well. We just saw dr eleventh weekend of protests here in hong kong and really it was in contrast yesterday to recent weekends where we've seen more bloody eighty radical battles between police and protesters spread across the city. We saw the airport shuttered last monday so having that scene of hundreds and thousands thousands of peaceful protesters of all ages walking through city streets rallying in victoria park it really seemed to many people like a starting point to show that this move and still has a big <hes> swell of mass support but also that many still believe in peaceful protests to try and convince the government government to start dialogue and look into making some concessions to the protesters amounts. Natasha says that now the ball is in the government's court when it comes to the protesters demands man's the protesters have five that have really sustained movement <hes> they include the fools draw this contentious extradition bill that sparked off this whole thing it includes an independent inquiry into police handling of the matters in the last few months <hes> amnesty for arrested protesters the removal level of a declaration that a protest on june twelfth was a riot and lastly. They're looking for a greater democratic reforms and universal suffrage and so now what we're seeing is because there hasn't really been any concessions from the government since june fifteenth when the government suspended the bill. We're oh really looking out for signs. The government might be willing to come to the table just to start dialogue. It's unclear if that's going to happen but it seems that the ball is in the government's court yesterday. President trump said he thought it would be very difficult for the u._s. To reach a trade deal with china if the country responded with force to the hong kong protests are i think it'd be very hard to deal if they do violence. I mean if it's another the animist square.

"At one point radio. We will begin. I today in hong kong along with natasha khan she's hong kong correspondent for the wall street journal. She's been on the streets today. Following the protests there natasha welcome to on point. Thanks for having me so first of all toes about the latest about what's happening at hong kong airport today. Well we had a pretty disruptive day in hong call when the airport authority decided to cancel more than one hundred flights <hes> through the evening as thousands of protesters earlier in the day had swarmed at the airport in response to what they say is police brutality yesterday and the police brutality being <hes> the teargassing of protesters in the subway station they yes there was teargassing subway stations. Particularly one rallying point was one female protester who had been shot in the eye with a projectile and so many protesters said the airport were tenting an eye for an eye you know give her give us back the eye and has been a huge rallying point so so hong kong obviously a hugely important city in asia. What effect did the effective closure of the airport have <hes> on the city and on that part of asia's well right today was particularly chaotic. <hes> because of the sudden nature of <hes> the flight cancellations i mean the <hes> airport valley was really only called late last night. After a you know the scenes emerged on on how police and protesters had clash on the streets so it wasn't really very expected and and so when the cancellation or announced that it was a bit chaotic i've heard of <hes> flights flights that were <hes> diverted to other cities and then you have to turn back to where they had come from <hes> and others who might have i've been trying to get home. We're trying to go for meetings at obviously couldn't count their flight. <hes> in the more long-term officials here have been warning for the last few days in particular or that ongoing protests will likely tip the economy into a recession and you know it's definitely the protests has also impacted sectors in particular retail like her isn't quite <hes> quite hard well. Let's listen to part of a report today. From hong kong's airport <hes> this is from the singaporean news service channel news asia as you said the the protest <hes> received a surge of energy and moved to the airport after that female protester had been badly injured over the weekend. This is by far the biggest turnout peaceful sitting at the airports <hes> this off. What of the female protesters had allegedly ruptured right. I after being charged with being back row during violent clashes since auto overnight. These protesters slogans here is today police return an eye for an eye. They say that's a report from a singaporean news service now in a press conference today the chinese government through through a spokesperson escalated its language using the word terrorism to describe the protesters. Here's a clip translated into english by china's state owned c._g._t. Tin over the past few days radical demonstrators in hong kong have repeatedly attacked the police with extremely dangerous tools dingos the to <music> violent crimes and beginning to show signs of terrorism so natasha khan tell us about what china is signaling what beijing signaling by using using this escalated language. I think that this escalated language is continuing their rhetoric in the last few days that they really would like the unrest last year to stop. They've been putting more pressure through their words to the local government and i guess it by association.

Coupling with police council right now here, you've got tens of thousands of people out, you can really okay? It's definitely tear gas being fired. Even at this field like the tightening the.
