"Would this also apply to Israel and Palestine? International law applies everywhere. Human rights are universal, indivisible and inalienable. This is the EU position across the world. Let me ask you about a statement by Jan Egland, the secretary -general of the Norwegian Refugee Council. He's got dozens of workers in Palestine. We just spoke to yesterday from the Jabalya refugee camp is where he lives. He came in, talked about the difficulty of even moving be able to talk to us to find a space that had electricity. Today we can't reach people in Gaza. Egland, But Jan the secretary -general of the Norwegian Refugee Council, commented on the Israeli relocation ultimatum of Gaza civilians, saying the Israeli military demand that 1 .2 million civilians in northern Gaza relocate to itself within 24 hours absent of any guarantees of safety or return would amount to the war crime of forcible transfer. It must be reversed, he said. Your response then, Koen van Bergstra? I fully subscribe to the statement of Jan Egland, as an international legal expert, as a political scientist, as a former diplomat and as a human being. There is no doubt that this has to be respected. And by the way, let me just underline this. If Israel decides to close its crossings in Kerem Shalom and in Yerez, Egypt is bound by international law to open its border crossing in Rafah. And it cannot be that Israel threatens to bomb borders and transports carrying humanitarian facilities and equipment. cannot It be. This is another war crime that would take place. Egypt also has to ensure that its obligations towards refugees under international are fully respected. So it's not just ensuring that in the space of the south, if one were actually to displace people, all the facilities are there fully knowing that this amounts already this forced eviction to a war crime, but also the ability for people to be able to exit for humanitarian reasons. This highly dense populated strip in Gaza in the south would also mean for Egypt to open its borders. And of course, it has community of providing the necessary provisions to facilitate that there. Again, this can only be a temporary solution. It cannot be that, as Mohammed had I said, we are basically witnessing a second Nakba, whereby the entire Gaza population is forcibly evicted from their homeland, which is Gaza from their homes. And that is also something I think we have clearly to underline when talking to Israel and when engaging with them on finding a solution. Let me just say an important thing right now. The key political measure right now is to de -escalate and stop any further war crime and try to ensure that the people of Gaza are safe and protected. And of course, I understand that is an important issue of being the hostages. I don't know whether it's 150 or whatever the number is. But it's very important that this process be done as soon as possible and through usations. This is also a very important element which we have to be aware of. So human carrying access and exit and freeing the and hostages de -escalating are the three key, I think, objectives one engage has to on them. We want to thank you for being with us. Ben -Kun van Bergstof, former EU Ambassador to the Occupied Palestinian Territory, served in that post up until July speaking us to from France. When we come back, we'll speak with Rabbi David Bassur. One of his congregants was killed Saturday in the Hamas attack on one of the kibbutzes where he was living in Israel. And we'll speak with Noura Erakat, Palestinian human rights attorney. Stay with us. This is a WCBT moment in labor. On February 8th, a Starbucks in Memphis, Tennessee, fired seven workers who were trying to unionize the company. Starbucks is currently denying these accusations, saying they were fired for security reasons. However, this is not the first time something like this has happened as union busting can be traced back to the early 19th century. Union busting is when an employer tries to delay, disband, or prevent a union from forming. Despite it being illegal, it has sadly become common in workplace. the From President Ronald Reagan firing all members of the Professional Air Traffic Controllers organization who on went strike to Amazon firing Dequan Smith for trying to create the Amazon Labor Union. To the latest of case Starbucks firing employees who were trying to unionize. Union busting was made illegal in 1935

"When you look at how much the Euro has overshot in the past, we've come up with a range of anywhere between 9 to 5 and parity. And I think in the current environment, that sort of range is not really unreasonable. Just survey lost the club ahead of FX research at Deutsche Bank seemingly everyone on board with this story now looking for a weaker Euro from New York City this morning, good morning. Tom Keane, Lisa brahmi and Jonathan farrow looking at futures with a bit of a bounce. We're negative a half of 1% on a S&P yield to lower by 7 basis points on the day on a ten year crude at 99 down by 4.75% and Euro dollar. Let's just call it parity. Jordan Rochester of namur Tom looking for 95 by the end of August, more painter camp for that currency pair. When we invented Bloomberg surveillance folks, it's about bringing in the experts John and I think we can say, John, as Jordan, where I just started Nomura, is nuanced and different than George Sarah velis a Deutsche Bank is nuanced and different than the giant Steven anglin or over its standard charter and to talk to all those people to read their research helps us collate around this shock that we have. Should we bring in Jordan Rochester? You bring them in right now. You bring them to interact. Jordan, where'd you get the extra downside from on Euro dollar from where we are down to say 95 in August? Morning, everyone, afternoon, everyone. Well, in terms of why we think you're a carries on. The risk is, of course, these gas flows, but there's also a global recession story building app. So I think most analysts have now only just realized Euro can keep heading lower. There was actually quite a bit of a fight in the sort of sell side community around the one O 6 level when the ECB turn hawkish. Well, now it's quite clear that gas flows dominating and the reason it goes to 95 is probably three reasons. The first one is the gas flows. We think that there's a high chance that Nord stream doesn't resume its operations. And what we're seeing is a fundamental macro story. You're a dollar is heading lower because European importers of gas are buying whatever they can buy from the U.S. from Qatar from Azerbaijan. They are just throwing money at the wall to make sure the EU achieves the 80% gas storage aims. The roughly around 62 or 66% for so they've got a lot more to do. And that's forced you're selling all the way until that target is reached. During the second reason is China. Okay, I'm sorry. Continue. The second reason is China. China's COVID business cycle before the break we had a little first work there telling us that Shanghai might be going into lockdowns again. That's the biggest trading partner for the Euro area. So demand is just come out of the curve for European exports. And the third one is recession risks. The U.S. raising rates the way they have, the way the world has moved to the supply chain and inflation, the ECB is going to raise rates in July, September, October, and so on, but we are talking about rate cuts here at noura next year. I think that's the next trade, and I find it really interesting how there's so much fed cuts price for next year, the curves inverted. But that hasn't happened in Euro yet. So that's the next story and that's going to weigh on Euro as well. So it's not just all about gas flows. It's a bigger story. Two cents spread moving from negative ten to a negative 11 basis points. Get your attention. Jordan, you and I were weaned on reading dually focused Landau Garber. David foker to land over at the big German bank makes real clear at some point. We have to step in using Euro is a proxy. Are we anywhere near on a Jordan Rochester 0.95 where institutions will step in to staunch the dollar strength? It's definitely possible, but I think it's unlikely. It's definitely not my base case, so I can say that. So when the Euro was invented, there was FX intervention. That was the authorities around the world stepped in, the Federal Reserve, the Bank of England and so on to help support the currency that said that it didn't spur a Eurozone crisis in its early infancy. So there was a joint effort there and at the same time inflation was not as much of a problem as it is today. Right now, every Central Bank around the world pretty much wants a stronger currency. It helps tame inflation from import costs. So that's why we're seeing even the likes of the SMB who have for years fought the kerb and tried to not have a stronger currency. They're pretty much asking for one. Well, the Eurozone they can do that via rate hikes. And I think that's the main way that they're going to possibly do that. But as I said earlier, the growth story is much bigger than just the rate hikes is what's going on with gas in China. But FX intervention is being talked about in Japan as well. Another great example, the authorities there say the move is detached from fundamentals where most of the charts we look at say actually the movie is quite in line with fundamentals. That's the same with the Euro. We've had a huge terms of trade shot Tom and German exports have now become very uncompetitive. The cost of electricity and energy in Europe is roughly around 6 times higher than America. So to make a piece of manufactured equipment, you're paying 6 times more in electricity costs. You're uncompetitive versus an American farm. You need a weaker currency to help you out. Jordan, I want to tease out the potential cases that you lay out in your most recent note, 95 is the most likely that you see by mid August or the end of August, I should say, that's according to your latest note. But you said that a 90 print could actually be reasonable to look for over the winter if we do get a Nord stream one cut down, cut off if a Russia does not restore the gas supplies. At what point does something break? At what point is there a level at which you start to see a contagion that perhaps is not linear? Well, I think 95 to 90 is non linear. What breaks? Well, I think credit channels will be much more of the area where things break. So the rise in interest rates we've seen, the drying up of consumer demand. We're going to see a lot of business models really challenged and that's where you'll have something breaks. The irony of that is, if you have credit spreads widen, that leads to a dovish Central Bank typically. And that would mean a lower Euro. So I still think the exchange rate is the release valve, and I don't think the exchange rate is what's going to cause that stress. It's coming from the supply and the demand side of the equation when it comes to those risks. But look, when we get to 95, we're kind of basing that on the Nord stream one flows maybe coming back to 40% of their capacity. What 90 sense is that's the scenario where Nord stream one does not come back on and the Euro area does not get enough gas storage and the German manufacturers get their gas rationed. The bundesbank in Germany have already done the

"Three sixty that is a small number of people. Giving you a deep amount of feedback you obsess but a little bit of regular nudges from a lot of people can be quite powerful. Could be really really helpful. I think it's a really different thing. So i think we think we in a move to a well two more crowdsource to be back. More crowdsource could nudges and insights. And i think that's gonna be interesting. Kristie went away in there on some of these issues accidentally end something he said. I think is critical. When you were talking about three sixties that people do tend to obsess over. Who said this the idea of anonymous feedback and i think at that point. People do wonder more about who it came from as opposed to being able to focus on what was said so. I completely agree with you there day and one other thing that i find really interesting asking for feedback requiring a certain amount of emotional maturity and i agree with that and sometimes i think especially if we have a younger workforce or someone who may not have achieved that same level of maturity there. Some great ways to kind of nudge the question until it becomes a habit of mayors and one example and i have to give credit to noura leadership. This is something that i've experienced working here. It's been wonderful for someone to come to me and say what type of feedback would be helpful. So even if i don't immediately remember to ask or it just asking that can be a way to still make that conversation a little easier. It reminds me to ask for it and steal takes that threat away so there are some ways that you can encourage the question and encourage people to ask for it. If they haven't quite got maryland their own that still going to give them some great information while minimizing that threat and create that culture of constant back. It's great thanks for what about people who've been through trauma like let's saying everyone on the planet. How do you deal with those folks and obviously some people have been through a lot more than others. Some of a really really difficult mine at mejet make joke of that but we will had some trauma to some degree this year but some law and certainly people who've got a high baseline of threat. Which is what happens from trauma. You do want to be a lot more thoughtful about your approach to all of these things to goal setting to feedback to chickens of. You'll be sensitive a lot more asking questions and generating insides Telling a local supportive overall. I didn't talk a lot about chickens but one favorite set of questions. This is more like a weekly standup than a full check in. But i think it's important to differentiate that this sort of weekly check in with a team that sometimes people think this is at. It's you know it's how you. How have you been winning. And what do you need help with three really interesting questions. Sunny in the heat of a pandemic. We were doing that pretty much every week without team. Now people doing better. It's more just kind of have been winning what you need help with. But it's a really really powerful set of questions particularly if people really sensitive people struggling. How are you actually. Make sure people answer that. Have you been winning and what you need help with so those are really good questions for that week to week. Check in particularly sensitive people who've been through a lot from the monthly checking against galls. It's really important that in focusing on progress. Not just results so. That's a key difference that you really checking in on how people are doing on the progress. So you're not just talking about outcomes evaluating progress kristie marshall anything to into the so summarise. Hadn't you get feedback when you you recognize..

Where wwe we was trying to see about acquiring the new japan pro wrestling library. I don't know if they were just trying to get like the entire library like everything that new japan has put out in.

And so we're used to spending most of our time in libraries and we really weren't used to direct sunlight so we burned rather badly that first day and then decided to look for indoor activities so we found a plantation tour where we were told about. How the plantation had burned down in a fire and the owners portuguese ward had died except bet. She was neither portuguese nor his ward. She was his daughter in slave woman and the rest of the story. We were told that betty was about the plantation owner how he was founded by his daughters gale and spent the rest of his life rocking on the veranda chasing the shade. And you could still hear that rocking chair creaking. On the verandah which was a great gothic goes straight. I love the ghost story but what really caught my imagination. At the time. I really wondered about was. Where was the child's mother. Was she there to the night of the fire. Had she agreed to have. Her child entered the household as a portuguese ward or had the child been torn for her and of course being that horrible person the group. I asked the tour guide. Who couldn't tell me. All they knew was that the mother had been anew unnamed enslaved woman and they had no idea who she was what happened. What the story and that was meant to be that. I went back to new york. I was writing a book. Set during the napoleonic wars light and flippant with lots of antics with napoleon. Behaving badly. And i couldn't get that missing mother out of my head that nameless enslaved woman whose child died in the fire yeah and for years the story i it haunted me particularly when i years later had children of my own and the full impact of what that manche came to me and but it was a stray. That really almost get ridden. Because i i came back. And my ed aroused me. Why watch right next deny supply barbados idea and she was like no. No no no. You cannot write a book. Santa caribbean i thought. Okay well. maybe that's the best. My background is in english history. Nod him caribbean history. I don't know why i'm doing. These are big topics nubia state and every now and then i take off that file and dusted off and then stick away again and it took about. Oh gosh eight years after that initial trip before my agent finally said to me. You have to write the barbados race. You'll stop talking about it. It's peculiar isn't it. It's just one of those things that certain time periods and things dominate the based sailors. You would know that well because some of your books seizure noise periods like world war one and world war took currently while others like you'll carribean stories. You mentioned find that a will have to gain acceptance. I think with socially with publishers but even with read as well what is this is an is their way of breaking through goodness. This is something. I've thought about a lot. It's very funny. Because when i had that discussion with others at the time she said what you can write anything you like as long as it set in england and then she paused for a moment. Thought very seriously and you can write anything you like. As long as it's set in nineteenth century england. Whenever i really want to terrify my agent my academic background is in the english civil war so whenever i coupon to scare my agent i tell her finally go right my big english civil war saga and the thought of my going seventeenth century. Just scares her speechless. But i do have some theories about why this is. I think for some reason. Although i can't really quite put my finger on there are synergies between certain time periods. I mean i. I grew up in the eighties. Which was the era of the victorian saga both Victorian england and a lot of american civil war novels and movies for some reason. The era of big hoop skirts.

"noura" Discussed on KHVH 830AM
"The different muscles that are involved in the joints are involved that goes back to stability versus motor control. What are we talking about here? Well, we're talking about In order for Your body to be able to walk upright. You need to have the correct muscle firing patterns. In other words, the muscles need to be Contracting relaxing in a coordinated fashion. You can move smoothly now, if the muscles are not firing in a synchronous pattern. You're not gonna be able to stabilize the joints properly, right? Think about what happens when you're standing. We don't really think about us using muscles were just standing still. It feels like we're not using any mostly just standing there resting on her joints, but actually, there are muscles. Which are constantly Hiring. Help you stand up straight. And those muscle groups need to be firing in a very coordinated way. Now. Moving forward we're talking about Stability and stability has to do with moving through a range of motion. Why you're going against Outside or external factors. Gravity going up a treadmill? Well, not a patrol. No, but, you know, moving against the forces of General going up and down stairs riding a bike, you know, surfing. Uh, you know, Twisting and pivoting on your golf club. The dynamic stability involves being able to control those muscles. A range of motion and that has to be resisted by the impact with the ball with a heavy box. You're lifting We need to make sure that we're not just strengthening the one Area. Where the pain it's, but we need to take a look at one or two joints away as well. So, for example, I can't tell you how many times in the clinic when people come in complaining about shoulder pain. You might have even gotten multiple cortisone shots from there, Doc. They might have even had shoulder surgery. And then they find out you know what Then you have to step back and say, Well, wait a minute. Here. Let's take a look at how stable is that shoulder? Why is it unstable? Is it because there's a rotator cuff injury? You know, and we do a careful evaluation, their physical examination we come to find out. You know what There. There is a rotator cuff injury and part of it could be from overuse. But then we take a close look and find out the reason why that particular shoulder that rotator cuff is vulnerable to overuse. Is that there's nerve compression. Or what's called Noura genic weakness. Perhaps there is some type of nerve injury upstream. Turns out that the number six nerve root controls the muscles around the rotator cuff. And so if you've got nerve compression or Nora genic weakness coming from upstream, of course, the rotator cuff is going to be vulnerable. But guess what. If you get that rotator cuff injected If you get that surgery done, and you don't address the neural genic weakness component what's happened to cause those muscles in the cuff to be weak in the first place? The problem is going to keep coming back. So Yeah, we're getting back to that. That topic of when it comes to exercise. It's so critical to not just get out there and and Question. Move muscle and No. No pain, no gain kind approach. That's something we did about. 30 years ago. These days, the approach is more about training the right muscle groups. It's about maintaining stability. It's about working our range of motion. And when it comes to injured muscles and joints, we need to take a closer look. At what is actually helping those parts of the body to move. So, for example. Maybe you've heard about bursitis. Bursitis is a little pocket of fluid that can build up nearby a joint or attendant where there's Motion. And irritation can cause the fluid to build up and that Area of swelling is painful. And The area nearby. The Joint Is made up of the cartilage. Lines where bones meat bone. It's also made up of the areas where the ligaments ligaments are like thick rubber bands that hold Bones in place. And there's also the capsule. The capsule is like a fiber structure that surrounds the joint and all these structures can become tightened. Were limited. If there's no Range of motion. If the muscles have lost their strength, those other structures, the ligaments, the tendons that joints they lose their elasticity. And that will affect the range of motion that will affect how well the muscles could do their job. So When we're taking a look at a painful problem. We typically doom or at Premier Magen IX than hey, Where's it hurt? We're going to stick a needle here. We need to take a careful look going beyond the pain. Trying to understand structurally what's going on so we can restore that range of motion. And that plays into the exercise component. How do we get the exercise going? Because if you can't do the exercises if it's too painful if you're not making forward progress With the physical rehabilitation Then we need to take a closer look. Maybe we do need to Talk about something. Whether it's a medication or injection to stimulate that healing process. Spin Doctor Dwight here with you and the moving body. Um Course we do. Take.
Working With Your spouse: Noura Sakkijha, co-founder and CEO, Mejuri
"Your co founder is your husband. You're not the first person on this show. Who's coders their spouse. But i really like. It's something that. I cannot fathom working with your partner so and i know what it is like to have a co founder but i also am very protective around like keeping keeping parts of my life separate. So what is that. Like to work with your husband. It's crazy for us. To be honest. I think a lot of people do it says together because it's so hard to start a business that i used to work sixteen seventeen hours a day and so if my partner wasn't in a similar lifestyle i don't know how things would have worked out to be honest with us. I think in that sense. It was really a positive. Obviously you know it gets stuff because we had to put rules around the separation exactly like you said going back home in going on a date. I don't necessarily wanna talk about strategy. We really had to set boundaries and and really be honest with each other like. I don't wanna talk about work now. Can we talk about something else and so try to figure out. How do we create the separation. But i think over time it just becomes part of your lifestyle like i. I just think of juries part of us and so we became a lot more comfortable especially as the company grew and we started to have our own vary obvious roles and responsibilities. And i think that is actually something that i would recommend for anyone. Who's working with their partners to make sure that you have clear roles and responsibilities. And who essentially is that decision maker on certain areas versus the other. How do you split up the responsibilities. So he's The presidency oh and he works on all the revenue generating areas of the business. And i have all of the other areas. We essentially put the strategy together. We worked closely together. But we have very different cassettes. I'm like i said i'm an engineer. He's more he's from finance background. I have knowledge in the jewelry. Industry saw work closely with creative with product culture in hr a ceo whereas magid is really focused with the marketing team at retail and international expansion. And so there's definitely a division that didn't happen overnight as the company grew. It was more obvious where we wanna put revenue generation. Where do we wanna put the structure of the company the culture and so that's how essentially things came boat. The good thing between us is that we have difference consents.
VCs and Startups Consider HaaS Model for Consumer Devices
"All familiar with software as a service right in a way. SAS has taken over the world. For software and all sorts of enterprise and consumer settings, but even increasingly. In all consumer settings as consumers have gotten used to. You know paying for digital things. I mean you can think of Netflix. As software as a service in a way. Well, are you ready for hardware as a service? Let me give you an example. Noura is a company that makes high. End earphones the NRA phone. For example is what the company calls the world's smartest headphones. You can buy the neuro phones today for three hundred ninety nine dollars, or if you pay ninety nine dollars, ninety nine cents up front and subscribed to pay nine dollars ninety nine cents a month. You can also own the near Afon. This is not rent to own. This is subscribed to us. As long as you keep paying, you can get a new neuro phone device every twenty four months. You can get the over the air software updates that keep the device improving, and Oh, yeah, keep the device working because if you stop paying, the device shuts off. Remember when there was that whole Brouhaha about Sonos end of lifing support for their earliest speaker systems. Yeah, get ready to hear a lot more about hardware service quoting techcrunch. In a recent email exchange Duncan Turner general partner at the x accelerator, which backed Noura described Hass hardware as a service as a great way to keep in contact with your customers and up sell them on new features most importantly for startups, recurring revenue is critical for scaling business with venture capital, and we'll help appeal to a broad set of investors, Haas also often has a low churn as easier to put. Put onto long term contracts and quote the upside to consumers clear. Don't pay for everything all up front, and your freer to experiment with new devices in ways you wouldn't have been otherwise. This is especially important in a world where brick and mortar experience is increasingly rare, even before retail ground to a halt courtesy of covid nineteen. There's also a clear appeal for those who are inclined to frequently upgrade devices quote. It's providing continuous value than it should be worth paying for Y combinator partner Eric Makovsky, tells tech crunch, if not stop using it and move on, it also is more sustainable hardware. These days requires a lot of software to work and the development and maintenance of that software costs money companies that have a continuous source of revenue will be able to continue to improve their product offerings through software updates and quote in two thousand eighteen. Eighteen study analysts parks associates noted a potential hurdle, however quote while a consumer reluctance to pay subscription fees is well documented. Haas models may get more traction. Where more value can be offered at less financial risk to the consumer, the challenges to create a service bundle with clear value that consumers find attractive consumers will pay for services that they perceive as valuable and complete tasks that they cannot or prefer not to do themselves unquote. As another VC is quoted, saying in the peace and I've seen myself over the last few months, startups don't have to be talked into Haas into this new sort of business model. Providing consumers can be talked into buying in as well if there is a new hotness right now in startup pitches at the moment it is basically subscription, but for x that sort of the new uber, but for X, and it's easy to see why this is so attractive to start ups. We've spoken endlessly before about how reliable and easily anticipated revenue is provided by subscriptions. But also if you have a subscription business, consider that you could achieve scale, not at the end of some years long slog through the Dark Valley of losing, money. Imagine, you could achieve scale and essentially bootstrap your way to it off. Your own cash flows from basically day one.
