Finds that millions more Americans are falling into poverty with the expiration of benefits from the cares act. It also says black people and Latinos are more than twice as likely as white people to be poor in this country people like, Jasmine, a twenty, two year old black woman here in Washington. DC, we aren't using Jasmine's full name because of the social stigma associated with poverty. She tried to get pandemic unemployment assistance back in the spring when everything shut down and she couldn't start a new job at national stadium I was receiving. Five hundred dollars a week. It was rarely enough, but it helped me out and. That stop. believe in June. And ever since then I've been going through a lot of financial burden jasmine is a single mom she's home with her four young kids including a three month old making it impossible to look other work she's already burned through the four thousand dollars she managed to save up while receiving assistance like I've spent all. From my pool and being accused me like orange and where I think ED's. and. It hasn't gotten that far with Congress unable to agree on a new round of Corona virus assistance people like Jasmine are slowly dropping further into poverty every day we're going to dig into the causes of this with William. Spriggs. He's the chief economist for the AFL CIO and also a professor of economics at Howard University in Washington. Thanks for being here this morning. Thanks for having me. What's GonNa Happen to people like Jasmine if Congress can't agree on more federal aid. For the moment, some people depending on where they live or benefiting from the halting of evictions that means they're building up arrears and their rent many of them because they don't have a flow of income are also building up whereas when utilities or they're borrowing from Peter to pay Paul and they're building up careers there as well. The problem for others is they are in places where he fictions are taking place. there. quaint to need extra deposit in order to get the next rent, their credit score will have suffered. In some cases, people are sophisticated enough to use the forbearance that's out there for credit cards. Many people don't know about this, and some of them are getting penalties for missing credit card payments. Cycle that keeps feeding and pushing people further into this place. Exactly. It spirals out of control in the problem is, as you mentioned on unemployment insurance claims while we did see the rebound that everyone expected. That we found has slowed and the last three months we've seen progressively lower job creation a build up of people who are now permanently unemployed as opposed to people reporting that they're temporarily unemployed and for African Americans the labor market is now turn back to its discriminating itself and I was Gonna ask about that I mean. This is hitting a blacks in America and Latinos harder than whites. This is a big question and a lot of it is structural but can you give a concise answers to why? Well there's clear discrimination labor market. So the unemployment rate last month for high school dropouts. was lower than the block an appointment. That's the depth of the discrimination that black workers space that their unemployment rate is higher than the unemployment rate of high school dropouts of this nation. LemMe ask when it comes to children child poverty. Is that a recent study by the University of Chicago, Notre Dame found that black people and kids have been hit so hard if we can't turn things around what is life like for those chiltern. The real tragedy we know that spells of poverty permanently scarred show because they fall behind on so many dimensions and that's why it's necessary that we stop this economic pain. As soon as possible it's a long term S- growing for our economy, not just the scoring we're having immediately, which is very deep to our labour-market. William Springs is the chief economist for the AFL CIO. He's also a professor of economics at Howard. University. We so appreciate you taking the time this morning. Thank you. Thank you.

The Truth is the Word of God
"The truth is the word of God and Grace. Has God's undeserved favor but it's also the power of the Holy Spirit coming to me freely to help me do what I could never do on my own. That's also a manifestation of God's grace and when I was back in my little religious boat going to church all the time and I worked in Church. Day was an elder in the church. I mean we we cared about God. We Love God but I mean it was a mess behind closed doors at home. I mean I might look saved on Sunday but it left on Monday even know what I'm talking about and I mean I always get along with everybody as long as nobody was home. It was when the people came in that I had a problem man. Oh boy all day long. I could be so spiritual. Oh thank you. Jesus head motherless. Cd's I'd do my dishes and look out the window and sing. My worship songs and the garage door was right back here where the kids came in from school. You remember that Sandy. We lived on Cadenas and now sandy beautiful. Sandy was a bit clumsy and she did things like draw. Pol Pot's of vegetables soup in the middle of the kitchen floor and I'm telling the truth right and and then I had another daughter who was like. Oh my gosh. She came in and she just. There was a trail of Laura. He's in here to somewhere. I don't know where she's at but I'm talking about you to shed this trail of stuff going through the House and so I was pretty good. Thank you Jesus. And then somebody sandy might fall in the door and throw her books across the room and then Laura would run in and go back and get on the phone. And I'm telling you what I could just turn into a totally different human being. I mean it was like let me tell you what. The old man got a quick resurrection. I had him hidden away somewhere where I could get him out if I needed him. I hadn't killed him yet. What is the matter are white people? Why can't we have any around here on anybody get it and then of course feel guilty? You see the same devil that tempts you to act. Ridiculous is the same one that makes you feel guilty when you follow his suggestions a man and I'm GonNa tell you something. I want you to listen to me. My behavior did not change until I stopped feeling guilty about my bad behavior. I repented. I was always sorry for everything that I did wrong. So if you repent and you're sorry then the sin is removed God forgives them and removes them as far as the East is from the West. So if there's no sin there's nothing to feel guilty about it now you're GonNa make me. Do it again see. We almost think it's holy to feel bad about ourselves. Let me beat them us. You know what we're doing trying to add are suffering. Jesus is suffering. Okay I have to tell you my story. You're making me go into different direction. I don't want to hear goes. I remember walking through a parking lot in this town with my invisible sack of guilt that I carry it everywhere I went and it had me burdened down. I don't even remember what I did. It didn't matter I did something everyday. So what difference does it make and I parked way out in the back of the parking lot because I wanted to feel pitiful as I walked through the parking lot. And I'm telling you what God started. And he said Howdy plan to get over the sin. Why do the right answer you know the answer you know? Sometimes we would just do what we would counsel somebody else to do. We'd be in good shape. I knew the answer said. We'll I'll just repeat the sacrifice that you made for me. When you died on calvary I was kinda proud of myself I thought it even kind of rhyme and then the next thought that God put in my heart as I see. When did you plan to do that? Just when did you plan to do that? And I knew that I knew already knew where God was going and I thought probably in about three days because that's about how long if it was a medium skin some minor infraction might only be a few hours but if it was a medium soon. It was about a three day guilt trip. Now Fun no laughter. Hang your head beat on yourself think. About how bad you are how good you are so that must have been a medium soon because I remember tell more probably about three days and the next thought that I had was you know God talks to you through your thoughts. Sometimes you know that don't you? We do have some holy thoughts to go along with some of the ones that aren't so great sacrifice going to be good in three days. Why's it good right now if that's going to be good in three days? Why isn't it good right now? And then what he showed me was. You're trying to add your misery to my suffering and either I did a good and a complete job or I need your help which I don't and I want you to listen to me. Listen BECAUSE IF I had to go in a different direction to get this across you I wanNa make sure you get it. This is what I remember the Lord. Putting my heart. What if you don't mind if it's not too much trouble would you just go ahead and receive my forgiveness today because listen because frankly? I'm trying to use you and I have a lot for you to do now. Listen and this is what he said. And you are no good to me at all in that condition. God wants us to learn how to repent say. I'm sorry then gone. And you're never gonNA change as long as you keep feeling guilty now. Obviously if you keep doing the wrong thing but that's not anybody who really if you're looking for an excuse to send your in a wrong building. I mean this is. That's not where we're going this week and we're not. We're not here to babysit people who have no intention of having any kind of a life change. I mean if you really are GonNa live in known purposeful habitual sin. Then you better go back. Check your salvation. Because that's just not the way that people that are genuinely saved live. That's just not what we do. There is a life waiting for us. That is unbelievable. Don't you think for a minute that the devil won't try to steal it from Your Luke Chapter Four now? There's a lot of this. Don't have time to do it. All but luke chapter four the first thirteen versus Jesus was led by the Holy Spirit out into the wilderness to be tempted of the Devil. Forty days and forty nights. Yes sometimes God will back all the enemies attacking you because he wants you to know who you are. And he wants the devil to know who you are. And so in Luke chapter four which I'm about to find here there. It is verse three says then the Devil said to Jesus if you are the son of God ordered this stone to turn into a loaf of bread now in these. Three specific things to them was an attack on his identity. If you are the son of God let me tell you. There is nothing no area where the enemy will attack you more than about your identity. Well who do you think you are and just who are you anyway. Child of God. God loves you. Who Do you think you are? And that's why we have to know that we know that we know who we are in Christ and that nothing that we've done in the past makes any difference now. I don't care what you did before. Christ you are a new creature in Christ now quit. Living in those old filthy worn out rags and put on the new creature and the new nature and begin to hold your head back and walk in it remember. You gotta believe it before you're going to see it in your life as long as you believe. You're a national stadium mess as soon as you start to believe the right way than the right thing will begin to happen in your life if you are the son of God. Then the devil took him up on a high mountain showed him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time and he said to him I will give all this power and authority and their glory magnificence and excellence to you. It's been turned over to me and I will give it to whomsoever I will. That's a whole message in itself. You Know Adam is the one that gave it to the enemy. He added authority in the garden. And when he disobeyed God the Devil said it's mine. I'll give it to him so I want to. Adam gave it to him but Jesus took it back for anybody who will take the ground that Jesus Guide to give.

"Now today marks twenty five years since the start of the genocide in Rwanda which killed nearly a million people in just one hundred days in nineteen Ninety-four about eight hundred thousand people with slaughtered by ethnic Hutu extremists. They were targeting members of the minority Tutsi community as well as their political opponents, irrespective of their ethnic origin, the massacres mostly by gangs. Wielding machetes swept across the country groups of people were killed in their homes in churches in schools places where they sought shelter. The United Nations was heavily criticised for stepping back and the United States for turning a blind eye to the brutality in a desire to avoid intervention for years. After the genocide the US President Bill. Clinton and the UN Secretary General Kofi Annan, both apologize to the victims for not attempting to prevent the atrocities that took place. It took a twenty year operation for UN backed court, the international criminal tribunal for Rwanda set up by the UN Security Council to bring some of the perpetrators to Justice. When our correspondent Ferdinand Amande is live in the in the capital of Rwanda Kigali an Ferdinand talkers through some of the events that will begin today. And then last I think over many days coming up. This as you mentioned was one hundred days of slaughter and on the twenty fifth anniversary. Rhonda begins a hundred days of mourning. It'll start this morning at the Kigali genocide memorial. We are more than a quarter of million people are bury their president pork Gama with other dignitaries from several countries of confirmed. The attendance will be there to light 'em memorial genocide flame after us. They will have a walk from Kigali convention center. All the way to the Amohoro national stadium. Amore is a place that is translated to mean peace. These we are many people's was shelter during that period of the genocide, and they're going to have some sort of commemoration just remember the twenty five years going on since the bloodshed death and plunder where the country is always going on. Now, mostly I also understand that during this period for the over one hundred days for seven days, then run that will mostly be very solemn. Calm. No loud music. No, loud shouting, even in some cases. None of the English football is very popular. Here will be washed trade to lay low because apparently any form of filtration may be seen as an insult to the memory of those who died for the next days. I'm told Rhonda stays really really come to remember the dead, what of moves towards reconciliation. How does that look to you twenty-five years on? What Rhonda has made great strides. I would say ever since the genocide of festival prison polka gunman is money to govern is the country to be largely peaceful compared to his neighbors even ruined weather with the killing this variance table, but right now in Rhonda, there's generally are a lot of sense of peace at the same time ever since the genocide ended a prisoner. They the government would try to build houses for those who love the property goes a little plant during that period and outspoken, some people say that been so every mainly on governments apart right now also witness pick the people here in wonder, nobody identify themselves as who were to see which are the main communities here, they say, I am Wendy's. So there's a sense of say that the fact that the two separate themselves, according to Freiburg's or or profiling that is the biggest genocide. And that he's so they private best make sure that they it infrastructures as one and behaved generally like that. So those are some of the things I've seen so far. But also spoke to one of the organizations that monitors jealous, but they say that it trauma levels actually going up because more and more people picking out about what is going on.

This is Bloomberg. Juliette? Ed, thanks so much. Let's get by conversation with. Yes. Because CEO of wisdom, tree investments in Japan. We've been talking about the third quarter numbers that came through out of Japan today GDP, but I could pick up again in the fourth quarter and some of the other risks to the Japanese economy. Yes. But what do you think the bureau J can do now because we still have the sales tax hike flavored for October next year as well. Meaning that till we could still have to see a little bit of supportive policy. Absolutely. I mean, the Bank of Japan is decoupling from the Federal Reserve, I expect that we would see no changes to the interest rate policy from Japan really onto well past the Tokyo twenty twenty Olympics, and you put your finger on the pulse. Here the issue is fiscal policy. The consumption tax will go up in October two thousand nineteen so prime minister is now putting together a budget some fiscal policy to actually counter the drag from next year's tax side with additional spending you mentioned the Olympics in Japan in two twenty twenty as many as forty related sites have to be constructed including a new national stadium, and they are running into a problem right now with a shortage of workers, they're having to bring in folks, I believe five hundred thousand. From places like, Vietnam and Philippines. I'm wondering first of all if it's going to be sufficient now or whether we're going to find. Japanese authorities in a situation where they have to allow more workers in and secondarily, yes, but whether this is the thin end of the wedge as it were in redefining immigration policy. No, absolutely Japan is opening up. They have no choice. Like you point out. The war for talent in Japan is just intensifying and Joff the construction industry and some of the low end jobs, you find that some of the leading companies like he touchy or Toyota starting to have problems procuring engineers. And so, you know, prime minister Ave is putting together or pragmatic immigration policy. The changes did pass parliament. And I think slowly. But surely, you will see Japan becoming more diverse and more often immigrant country and to that end. How much of a boost is the twenty twenty Olympics gift to Japan just forward-looking when we are getting a lot of speculation that the global economy could hit that slowdown in two thousand twenty. Yeah. The construction boom is going on here. You know, I think that over. All the booze from the Olympics will be about one percent of GDP, and you may have seen that the accedes not just Tokyo, but some of the regional economies, for example, the sailing events, you know, he's going to be held somewhere in the regions of Japan. So you know, yes Tokyo is the main beneficiary of the Olympics. But some of the other parts of the country will also get their shot in the arm. So presumably in twenty twenty there's going to be a huge influx of tourists coming to Japan. But how is it the tourism industry right now? Oh, fantastic. I mean, you know, you find that the occupancy rates at the hotels are running in the high nineties, I mean, literally ninety five ninety eight percent if you wanted to get a room in one of the Tokyo hotels for the next couple of months.

Of it online very, early this morning and the champion is the hometown boy right there in, the NATs, stadium national, stadium Bryce Harper Epic epic epic homerun derby victory what his dad pitcher Tim. Is big dad Ron, we'll get into Ron a little while he's getting more hyped in the, sun but, it was I really enjoyed, this, homerun, derby, bucket said in the past I'm one, of those guys, that, likes. To homerun derby I've watched it for years the new the new format with, the formula o'clock It's, just so much. More fun to it and a real. Sense of urgency as opposed to where. It was just, had a, hit what was ten out so I think it was the never ending. Never ending, battle, you get a chance to watch her you were running around, with the kids we the well of course my four. Year old son refuses to, stay in, his bed a bedtime so I yeah Yeah that's yeah I, missed Reese Hoskin. Sort of the whole thing off with. What seventeen homers great I'm just kick. It off the, way he, kicked it off really very oppressive for the Philly yeah and then I. Went to, sleep So I didn't see Harper's ridiculous the final round. Ridiculousness live last night? But thank God for the internet. And thank God for last night I mean this is whether. It's this whether it's the NBA slam dunk contest contests we are these things that. Are kind of outlived their welcome are they useful anymore I thought last night was fun I thought the, guys who had. Thought they were pumped up I think the, new format, is. Is definitely an improvement and makes these little faster. I do, still feel a little bit of a lull after the first round. After the. First four. Battles so to speak. The next kind of little, bit is like, all right fine but even that involved Jewish Warburg. Hoskins rally too so I I don't think last night. Could have gone any. Better for baseball I. Agree, I agree. Mostly what you said I I liked everything about like I said but I'm. Kind. Of a mock for this thing I really enjoy it kinda. Nourish, kind of disturbing more I. Think.
