"The finance HR and planning system for a changing world. This is all things considered from NPR news. I'm juana summers. And I'm Ari Shapiro, Russia has increased its aerial assault on southern Ukraine recently. It's been firing missiles at areas outside of the Donbass, hitting food storage facilities in the city of Nikolai. And just hours ago, at least 21 people were killed and dozens were injured when Russian missiles struck a residential tower and recreation center, just outside the city of Odessa. And Peter granite's reports. The sun and the beach has a red skull and crossbones, warning of landmines laid to prevent an amphibious landing by Russians. That doesn't stop a dozen or so people from hopping the fence to catch the sun on a beautiful, hot afternoon. One of them is an older man named vasili. He doesn't give us his last name. You sense he's a little embarrassed for breaking the rules. Sometimes I worry, he says, sometimes I don't. If I worry all the time, I should live in a bomb shelter. While he may sound carefree, others are frustrated. Slava bielski has a beer in hand as he takes in the beach and waves. Which is which people are tired from the war, he says, people want to live their normal lives. Volodymyr dubovik is the director of international studies at Odessa mechnikov university. He says Russia's desire to capture Odessa is cultural, historic, and economic. To the psyche. I mean, for they are understanding of the Russian world in Ukraine. There's no place, but Odessa. The city is Russian speaking. It's port made it one of the biggest cities in the Russian Empire. In many Russians vacationed here and did business here before the war

"Ukraine Millions of people may starve if Russia's blockade of the Black Sea continues That's Ukrainian president volodymyr zelensky warning earlier this week of food shortages in Africa the Middle East and other regions ongoing negotiations to export the grain have yet to produce a deal How does this look to the people who produce the grain and pierce Peter granites is in Odessa either Peter Hey Steve how you doing What I'm doing okay Thank you very much What are Ukrainian farmers saying and how are they doing Well they are nervous and they are saying that they're worried they are worried of course about their livelihoods about their businesses Obviously they're safety There's a big concern about artillery landing in their fields and actually ruining their crop yields Steve yesterday went out and I talked to the farm named Vasily flamenco It's about 30 miles outside of Odessa He's got a pretty big farm It's about a thousand acres He farms sunflowers that he exports for cooking oil But it's mostly winter wheat and barley He plants those in the fall and then he harvests them early in the summer He's getting ready to do that right now but he doesn't know what the price is going to be He says the grain elevators at the port of Odessa are full And that is why brokers aren't and that's why brokers aren't giving him a price that he really needs one So he knows just how bad financially this year will actually be Steve Ukraine says that there are more than 23 million tons of grain still in the country that can not get out In Vasily starts harvesting in just about a couple of weeks and he's worried that if he harvests the grain it'll rot And if that happens he thinks his farm and his business are done and he'll be out as much as $70,000 in this year's expenses We've discussed the main bottleneck here on this program It's that this grain would normally be loaded on ships in Ukrainian ports and the Black Sea and sent around the world but of course the ports are closed and Russian forces are off the shore Have negotiations to reopen those ports produced any progress No they have not Earlier this week there were conversations between the Russian and Turkish foreign ministers in Ankara But Ukraine wasn't there Like you said there's Russian ships floating in the Black Sea You can't see those from the shore here in Odessa But those are the ships that are enforcing the blockade The goal would be to open up a shipping lane that would allow Ukraine to export the grain and to do that safely Turkish ships would like it would likely be Turkish ships that would escort the grain through the sea towards the bus for straits You know Russia is doing this because it wants sanctions relief but Ukraine rejected any deal outright obviously Ukraine wants the ports open so it can sell its food to the world because the country really needs the money and the UN has warned that if the food doesn't get out this year food shortages in hunger could get worse Listening to you I get a sense of why the negotiations maybe aren't working very well It's hard for the outside countries to give Russia anything that it would want Yeah I think that a lot of the countries don't want to include in the United States and the other Western Allies don't want to give anything to Russia because they invaded Ukraine Neither side trusts.

"At enterprise scale solving previously unsolvable problems C three AI is enterprise AI This is all things considered from NPR news I'm Ari Shapiro and I'm Adrian Florida Most people who ran the Boston Marathon last month spent days before resting up and days after recovering but not Jackie hunt Boston was the 92nd marathon she had run in 92 days The very next day she ran another and then another and then another a 104 marathons in total in a 104 days If it's confirmed by Guinness World Records that would be the new world record and get this she did it all with one leg and one prosthesis Jackie hunt Bruce joins me now Welcome Thank you And thank you for having me on Well first of all congratulations You ran your 104th and final marathon on Saturday How are you feeling today I'm feeling really good It feels a little strange not to be running because I've been doing it for so long But it was a nice relief to kind of be done with it now I think my body needs a break my family needs me They've all missed me a little bit Well you set the goal to break the previous world record of a hundred consecutive marathons You needed a 101 to do that But then you ran a 104 I did Because a 104 was the end of April so I just wanted to round it off so I know that sounds really silly but I'm like oh I might as well finish April on a marathon and yeah ended it with a 104 I understand you lost your left leg below the knee to cancer a decade ago Tell me about the prosthetic you use I'm running in a filler obsidian and blade And I've been running with that now because I've been running forward 6 years so I switched probably about four years ago with it I wasn't a runner before I lost my leg And running truly has changed just changed the perception of how I see myself as an amputee It makes me feel strong It makes me feel fearless and it's just been phenomenal What made you start My husband's a runner and I was always intrigued To be honest I still run as a little bit crazy I'm like why would you do that And when you lose your leg as an when you lose your leg there's an element of you that you become a little bit more stubborn because people tell you there's so many things that people tell you you can't do You can't do this You can't do that And Ronnie was one of those because it's really complicated you need a running blade you need you need a special device to be able to go out running and I think the stubbornness in me kind of went down that journey just because I wanted to prove that I could do this that everyone else was doing I mentioned that you ran the Boston Marathon last month of the 104 that was the only official marathon you ran most of these marathons I understand were run on a course near house or on a treadmill On a treadmill I mean what's good about a treadmill is that it's a little bit softer So when you're doing this one of the main goals is to stay injury free And I feel like with adding in the treadmill a little bit because it's a little bit more bouncy It's not beating up your body as much as it would if you're running outside So kind of mixing a treadmill in just kind of kept it a little bit interesting And on days that were really hard it was quite nice to kind of put on Netflix and just binge watch something just to distract yourself from the distance And I've got to ask what was your best time out of the 104 Out of a 104 I managed a four hour 20 which wasn't too bad actually I can't remember which number that was but yeah Not too bad I was quite happy with that What's next for you Jackie I have a 240 mile race in October I don't do easy So it's a 240 mile race adding Utah Moab Moab two 40 So I will I'm going to take two weeks off now no running for two weeks and then I'm going to get back into training and focus on my web Well teach her own I wish you the best of luck in that race Thank you I've been told I'm a little crazy too so that's okay That's Jackie hunt Bruce man an ultra marathoner Thanks so much for being with us Thank you very much for having me on the show Countries in the Middle East and port a lot of their food from Ukraine and Russia the cost of that food has been rising and now with the war in Ukraine inflation has gotten even worse and Paris Peter granite's reports people in the Mideast and their leaders are anxious about how high prices could go and the problems that could bring What is she hot as family's business runs four grocery store brands in Lebanon in his more than a thousand employees Before Russia's February attack in Ukraine paying those workers was his highest expense That has changed he said when we called him The expense of wiesel jumped from 3% of sales to 9% of ourselves Now it costs 30% more for the generator power that keeps the lights on and produce fresh That in the increased cost of shipping has forced shahada to raise prices between 5 and 10% He says his stores see the same amount of shoppers but they're spending about 10% less They're cutting back on extras and the unnecessary items in buying up Staples like cooking oil The supplies are so limited The demand is getting higher because people are afraid to lose these main commodities They are stocking in their houses And I am afraid that if we continue the supply will go down more and more and the demand will go up more and more which for sure will make the prices go crazy Lebanon like turkey and Egypt imports more than 70% of its wheat from Ukraine in Russia says Dina Salah with the UN's international fund for agricultural development She says global food prices could rise as much as 20% because of the invasion Bending the conflict now is the only solution to avert a global food crisis And a protracted conflict will be catastrophic for the world's poorest people In Egypt the government is trying to fight inflation by raising interest rates just like in the United States The government has also devalued its currency in order local wheat growers to sell inside the country before exporting sesame and analysts at the Middle.

"The U.S. House centers one of its own. Plus, what chip shortage, semiconductor maker Nvidia says sales doubled last quarter, and the debate over electric vehicle tax credits. It's very much a fight between companies and between states over who is going to emerge as the big winner of this big stimulus package. And if the president has his way, the winner may actually be union workers. It's Thursday, November 18th on Peter granites with The Wall Street Journal. Here's the a.m. edition of what's news the top headlines and business stories moving your world today. Unionized workers at John Deere are back at work after ratifying a contract Wednesday. They'd been on strike for more than a month. Members of the united auto workers union approved the contract 61% to 39%. They won higher wages, boosts a pension funding and increased productivity pay. The union had rejected too earlier offers with members saying that deer should pay more since company sales are the highest in years. The U.S. House has centered representative Paul gosar. In a mostly party line vote, the chamber formally reprimanded him and stripped the Arizona Republican of his committee assignments. It comes after gosar posted an anime video that showed him killing representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. She called out Republican leaders before the vote for failing to condemn one of their own. This is not about me. This is not about representative. Gosar, but this is about what we are willing to accept. Gossar remained defiant. He told the House chamber the video posed no threat and depicted policy battles over immigration. The head of the women's governing body of tennis has expressed new concerns about the safety of Chinese tennis star Pong Shui. She hasn't been seen or heard from since November 2nd when she accused a high ranking Chinese official of sexual assault. On Wednesday, Chinese state media published a screenshot of an email purported to be from her to the women's tennis association in it, she says the accusation is untrue. In a statement WTA chief executive Steve Simon questioned its legitimacy, saying it only raised more concerns about her whereabouts. In the leaders of Canada and Mexico are in Washington and set to meet with President Biden. Canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau is pressing the U.S. not to pass electric vehicle tax rebates that he says would hurt the countries that export cars to the U.S.. We'll have more on the EB tax write offs later in the show. Nvidia shares rallied after hours on news the U.S. chip company posted another quarter of record sales, sales for the third quarter rose 50% to $7.1 billion, generating a net income of $2.46 billion beating Wall Street expectations. For more, we are joined by markets reporter Jim will height. Hey, Jim. Hey, Peter. Wood drove the search in sales at Nvidia. Pandemic distortions played a part. People have had plenty of time to play video games. And Nvidia has also benefited from a wider adoption of digital services that run on data centers. The results come despite the global chip shortage that has otherwise dented sales of gaming consoles and cars. What did Nvidia say about this? And how does it affecting its business? They've been working to lock in long-term supply agreements. During the recent quarter Nvidia said that it had made 1.64 billion in advance payments as part of that. They also did say that supply challenges hitting carmakers had put pressure on its automotive sales, but they're still up from a year ago. And they're pushing into new markets. Nvidia said this year that it would offer central processing units for data centers. And that's a direct challenge to Intel. Nvidia CEO Jensen Wong is also betting on the so called metaverse. Tell us about that. Facebook isn't the only company aiming to cash in on virtual worlds. In video, is offering software called omniverse enterprise that offers collaboration and simulation tools. Like the ability to create interactive avatars. They're billing the set of tools as foundational to creating and connecting virtual worlds. Mister Wong said he sees big potential and metaverse. Big potential in the future. That was mark's reporter Jim will hide. Thanks for your time. Thanks. Coming up, President Biden school of getting more electric cars on the road has some wondering if he's more.

"Finally, the latest movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is out today. Eternals, and the film is already getting a lot of attention. It's the first ever marvel movie with a sex scene. In the MCU's 13 year history, there's been romance, but sex has only been implied, not portrayed. The movie is still rated PG-13, but our entertainment reporter Ellen gummerman says director Chloé Zhao is bringing a different tone. She's fresh off an Oscar win for best director for Nomadland, which was a very quiet kind of internal movie with a lot of beautiful sweeping shots and pauses in silence and time to contemplate. And a lot of focus on the relationships. And so she came in to marvel wanting to bring some of that sensibility and focus really very much on the relationships, which is why she says that there is a sex scene and why there are these firsts in her film. And I think for people who feel this was a long time coming for marvel fans who were very happy about this development. They think that the explosions really mean much less and the action means much less if you don't care about the characters and feel that you know them. And what she's doing is trying to present these characters in a more three dimensional way. The movie is also breaking new ground on diversity, including being the first in the franchise to show a gay superhero kiss. And that's what's news for this week. I'm Shelby Holliday, our hosts are Anne Marie foretold and Peter granites. Thank you to Laurie harass for filling in this week. The show was produced by trend Nouri and Mosin Ali, with help from Kate boulevard, Anthony bansi, Julie Chang and JR waylon, and editorial support from palo bosun, katri Yocum, Sandra kilo, and Chris inslee..

"When President Biden said last week, the U.S. would protect Taiwan if China attacked it, The White House scrambled to clarify. The U.S. strategy toward Taiwan is known as strategic ambiguity, basically declining to say what it would do in the event of an attack on Taiwan. Taipei sees the island as separate from Mainland China. It's never been under Beijing's rules since the Communist Party took over 72 years ago. Relations between the two have been tense recently, with some Taiwanese officials warning of a possible attack. My colleague, Peter granite spoke to our reporter, joyu Wang, who is based in Taipei. Let's take a listen. To good morning. Good morning. We should start with some quick background here. Remind us of the relationship between Mainland China and Taiwan. Sure, long story short, this can date back to the Chinese Civil War during the late 90 40. Sat last two miles down and flat to Taiwan. Since then, the Communist Party considered Taiwan's part of its territory. Even though it never had the island, but has since voted to take control of it. The U.S. has its strategic ambiguity policy for Taiwan. How does that square with its one China policy to Beijing? So do U.S. has a knowledge that Beijing's one China policy, but didn't say whether or not it agree with China's position. How likely is it that that policy might change? So far analysts will assume that you ask to continue, you know, it's policy to us Taiwan for now. We haven't seen any signed from Washington that the U.S. are going to change its positions to a Taiwan. As The White House, secretory, cure after Biden's we mot last week. And remind us what's been going on between Mainland China and Taiwan in the past month. Right. Just before the Chinese national day in early this month, Beijing has sends a record number of warplanes near Taiwan's air space and that has escalated the relations or the situation in the strait of Taiwan. On the other hand, Taiwan has also proposed that, you know, a special mandatory budget to encounter the increasing threat from China. How capable is the Taiwanese military right now? These are good questions. According to our reports, queer field people from the U.S. and Taiwan locally concerned about Taiwan's resource forces because of weariness. There are a couple of problems that Taiwan public has to face and deal with. But to be fair, Taiwan's also has a pretty good professional troops and pretty well trained the pilots and other professional special fathers. Yeah, you wrote about that. You wrote that it's a morale problem, right, with its conscripted force. That's right. Many of the conscript as being caught up to the material might not necessarily want to be there for a variety of reasons. Conscription isn't popular among Taiwan's young population. Because of what people get our office say is, you know, poor ching Lang. Many of them say as a ways of time. So the young folks would want it to pursue their career instead of spending a couple of money in the Mediterranean. And this has been a quite a few creative ways to avoid conscriptions. And apparently gaining weight is one of the most common way for this Taiwanese young people to do. Does that leave Taiwan in a place that it's going to need other nations to turn to in the event of an attack? According to some opinion pose quite a few towel on these we expect you ask and it's all to come if there's an event of conflicts. But Taiwan's president tying one reasons Lee has also hoped to make a point to the allies that Taiwan are going to do its job to prepare for any crisis. How likely is an attack? Is that crisis? There's no immediate sizing that it's going to be a conflict fall for now. But the tension is definitely have risen.

"Indicates a former pilot for Boeing's troubled 7 37 max, a model that crashed twice. Plus, the back and forth over the Texas abortion law, a judge now says it can go back into effect. And there are millions of people out of work and millions of open jobs, how long can that disconnect last? Nobody's really convinced or certain at this point that we're going to find an equilibrium that works both for employers and for. People who want jobs. It is Friday October 15th on Peter granite's with The Wall Street Journal. Here's the a.m. edition of what's news the top headlines and business stories moving your world today. A former Boeing pilot has been indicted for allegedly lying to air safety regulators about a flight control system that was later blamed for two crashes. Mark fawkner was the chief technical pilot for Boeing's 7 37 max jet, two of those planes crashed in 2018 and 2019, killing 346 people. Federal prosecutors charged forkner with fraud for his role in persuading the FAA to approve training materials that excluded information about the flight control system. He's due in court Friday. His attorney and Boeing declined to comment. Lebanon is in a day of mourning after 6 people were killed in Beirut during sectarian fighting. The violence between Shiite and Christian groups erupted after tensions over a probe into last year's port blast boiled over. Nazi Jose ran a reporter for the journal in Beirut, says the fighting comes amid an economic freefall in Lebanon. The collapse of the currency skyrocketed prices across the spectrum. Guys is more expensive. Food is more expensive. Electricity is now there because fuel is too expensive and generally the economy has imploded whereby the most basic of things have become out of reach for most people. Lebanon's 15 year Civil War ended in 1990. A Texas law effectively restricting abortion after 6 weeks of pregnancy can remain in effect while it's being challenged. The federal appeals court ruling postpones in earlier one from a lower federal court that prevented enforcement of the law, it prohibits doctors from performing the procedure if there's a detectable fetal heartbeat and a deputy's private citizens to enforce it. The U.S. Department of Justice has sued Texas over the law. In Bill Clinton, is in the hospital. A spokesman for the former president says he was admitted to UC Irvine medical center Tuesday with an infection unrelated to COVID-19. His office says he's recovering, but it did not say when he would be released. Shares of Macy's rose in late trading yesterday after we reported that activist investor, Jana partners has taken a stake in the retail.

"We definitely don't hear a lot of talk from the intelligence community about whether or not there's retaliations of it. But from the State Department from the Defense Department, even The White House, they say they're taking it very seriously, but we don't really see any action with regard to it. And so it's a tough one to tell what's happening behind the scenes. Vivian Salem covers national security from the Washington bureau. Thanks for your time. Thank you. And finally, a story for those of us in the cheap seats on planes, those of us suffering the indignity of never having space in the overhead bins because they are always filled by the time we bored. Well, there is hope. Boeing and Airbus have manufactured new single aisle planes with much larger overhead bins, and Wall Street Journal middle seat columnist Scott McCartney says everybody wins. I think it's clearly better for travelers. There's less stress you don't have to worry about, oh my gosh, I'm in a late boarding group. I'm going to have to have my bag checked and all. It's a huge win for airline staff. Flight attendants love this gate agents love this. They don't have to mess with a whole lot of problems in boarding that they might otherwise have. And airlines, you know, it's good for airlines. If airlines can reduce delays at the gate and avoid late flights, that saves airlines money in the long run in a way, the Benz will pay for themselves in just better reliability. And that's what's news for Thursday morning we'll be back tonight with the new show. I'm Peter granite for The Wall Street Journal. Thanks for listening. 20 years ago, energy giant enron was considered one of the most innovative companies in the world. But in late summer 2001, the company's top executive resigned out of the blue. That.
