"Plow. I meant to talk about this yesterday. We never got there. I gotta do it today. We must discuss the snowplough. Virginia heffernan is a. She's a columnist in the los angeles times. Some might i would not But some i've seen make jokes about her part of her last name given this column. We won't go there. Oh heck no. The trump bites next door to our pandemic getaway seem as devoted to the ex president as you can get without being cunanan fans just plowed our driveway without being asked and did a great job. How am i going to resist. Demands for unity. In the face of this act of aggressive niceness of course on some level. I realize i owe them. Thanks and man. It really looks like the guy back dragged the driveway like a pro. But how much thanks. These neighbors are staunch. Partisans of blue lives and there aren't a lot of anything other than white lives in the neighborhood. This is also kind of weird back in the city. People don't sweep other people's walkways for nothing. Maybe it's like what eddie murphy discovered in that old saturday night live sketch white like me. He goes undercover and white makeup and finds that when white people are among their old they pop free champagne and live. The highlife as murphy puts it slowly. I began to realize that when people are alone they give things to each other for free hezbollah. The shiite islamist political party in lebanon also gives things away for free. The favors has does for people in the cities tyre and sidon probably don't involve snowplows but like other mafias has bulletins to its own. The shiite sick elderly in hungary they offer protection and hospitality and win loyalty that way and they also demand devotion to their brutal us versus them anti sunni caused some of us our family. The favor say the rest are infidels. The same is true. With louis farrakhan who currently helms the nation of islam while the southern poverty law center classifies him as a dangerous anti semite much of his flock says. He's just a little screwy and unfailingly magnanimous to them with someone helps you. When you're down or snowed in it's almost impossible to regard them as the blight on the world in fact you're more likely to be overwhelmed with gratitude and convinced of the person's inherent goodness. You might end up like the upper middle class family. I stayed within france as a teenager. They did not attend a citywide celebration. For the hundredth anniversary of charles de gaulle. The war hero who occupy who orchestrated the liberation of his country from nazi germany and nineteen forty four they did have several portraits of philippe. Petit the nazi collaborator on the wall. What i screwed up the courage to ask how it was for them during the occupation. The lady of the house replied. We were happy because the nazis were very police.

S Consulate Staff compound in Hong Kong in San Francisco. I'm Ed Baxter, this is Bloomberg. Kathleen. Ted, Thanks so much. Well, we are going to go to Singapore. Now to speak to Mark Cut Mur cut more. I should say macro strategist and live markets Team and mark Happy almost New Year. I guess it's already your New Year's Eve in Asia. And in that spirit, I want to take a look at a story that was put together about how how mark the markets live Team at the beginning of the year, looked ahead to the year and how things turned out Now you pat yourself on the back for a couple of things, and one of them is just putting so much emphasis on how much central banks could do for markets and how quickly they could turn around and do something else that they needed to I guess that called it turned out pretty well. Yeah, I can't. I'm not sure we can claim credit for a quote I work turned out. I think it was one of our lessons of Children 19 on. It's hard to remember this now, but actually just 19 with a year where central banks did respond quite aggressively. After the time it seemed quite aggressively to kind of a downturn in market on Ben, suddenly, internment 20 just seemed kind of all previous expectations. What country things could do completely burned the water. So that was one of our lessons from 12 months ago, But if it was hammered home even more of the last problems it really the story of 2020. All these social perspective, it is actually about the virus. Doctor markets perspective. It's not about the virus at all. If you had a look at where price of trading there from 12 months ago, they show no sign of a pandemic that is kind of ravaged society, in fact, that the story from markets of 2020 has been entirely central banks in just the extraordinary actions will take across in many different fields. Directly impacting acid on in terms of just indirectly was pumping liquidity into the system. So does that schizophrenia get reconciled in the new year? I'm not sure it necessarily is schizophrenic. That kind of idea of the pandemic versus central banks, I think ultimately, central banks have learned how to dominate market. So you know there was this old adage we've to kind of stay in markets. You know when I was learning to trade 20 years ago, and that was the idea that you know, don't fight the Fed on. I think the kind of future forget the power that for a while because it seemed like you know, the Fed of Lost controlled influence sensation..

"Some of you know his 40 year tradition of playing winter solstice concerts at the Cathedral of Saint John the Divine In Morningside Heights, the 41st and when annual Winter Solstice concert, the one this year will be virtual, and for today, Paul has also brought a gift of music for us. From his new album called Light of the Sun. Hi, Paul. Big fan and thanks for giving us a few minutes happy solstice. Well, thank you, Brian. The same to you. How did the Saint John the Divine Solstice Concert tradition gets started way back in 1980. The dean of the cathedral, then the rib very Reverend James Parkes more than heard us play a to couple of events and asked if we would want to come and play at the cathedral, which at first I couldn't imagine doing. I had been there for Duke Ellington's funeral 1974. Was the most astounding place I've ever been to and I, But after a while, I finally agreed that we could find I hoped we could find music that would be appropriate. In any case, I began to think of what would be the most universal milestone of the year. We could celebrate. And it occurred to me is the winter solstice, which includes everybody in the world. And did you have an all face all culture celebration of diversity of life on Earth? And so we did our first one. That December thinking well with we would do it one time and now we've done it's 40 times. Hi. Well, even the title of your new album Light of the Sun makes it sound like you're very attuned to the changing cycle of light throughout the year. How'd you get interested in this? Well, it probably has a boy scout in the mountains of Pennsylvania going up, Uh, being outdoors and, uh, feeling at home there, Um and, uh, now I live in the hills of northwest Connecticut and When you can get to be in nature some I mean, I think it's just It's intuitive with us. You know, it's funny that you talk about the boy scouts and going out like that. For me growing up in Queens. Um And then you know the first time I went camping, which wasn't until I was young adult. Kind of struck me in the face that you better be in tune with nature throughout the day or you're screwed. Right? Exactly. But light is visual music is audio. How do they connect? In a space like the cathedral, which is the world's largest, um, that has seven second reverberations. Music comes alive there. Are better than speech does. As does the theatrical lighting that we use in this winter solstice celebration. That illuminates the cathedral. I think in ways that it never has been before, and that's what's been thrilling to see as we went through 40 years of our archives. Videos of this event to come up with 2.5 hours that would highlight the most iconic performance is over all these decades. So that's going to be a treat Your 30 41st annual pulling to consort Consort Solstice concert. Those words are too similar. Um, Since you can't do it in person, it's gonna be a best of from the last 40 years. Yes. And we have with singers from seven cultures. Gary Brooker, from Procol Harum singing one of the most iconic songs of the 20th century with a whiter shade of pale. Even leans from Brazil. No Paul Stookey of Peter Paul and Mary, the Dmitri Pokrovsky fingers from Russia. Then we have a lot of dance, the African dancing and drumming of the Forces of Nature Dance Theater. And Philippe Petit will make a special appearance, too, repelling down from the vault of the cathedral as the torchbearer to two, then lead the procession to the Far East end of the cathedral to ignite the sun. How can people see that? Give them the Web address. It's a video on demand. And the access is available on solstice concert.

"It is yet another critical moment between the UK and Europe. Here's Nick Schifrin. Brexit Biden Iran climate, the future of U. S European relations. It's all on the agenda in Brussels and here in Washington, and one of the men at the center of those negotiations will be Philippe Petit End the ambassador of France to the United States. Ambassador Welcome To the news hour. Let's talk about Brexit for for a second. There are three major issues preventing a deal, fishing rights, legal oversight, and the so called fair play the UK needs to meet Has France taken up maximalist position, preventing a deal. Well, thanks, Nick. For having me indeed a Zafar. This negotiation post Brexit station is concerned where in a race against the clock. Friends has not a maximalist position. We are all that united among the 27 member states. We have been given a mandate to our negotiator. We have one negotiator for the whole of the you And as you said, we have three issues which have still to be to be settled. Those are both technical and politically quite sensitive. The most important one in terms of economic effect is what you call what we can call the level playing field s o that the competition is fair to an access to markets. But also we have the governance. What can we do? What could we do? What should we do if we disagree, and the fisheries Will improved relations with a Biden administration mean that Europe goes back on promises and discussion on increasing European self reliance on increasing European defense spending. We have to increase our defense spending. Each was a request by all recent American administrations Trump administration Obama administration We need to introduce two. We need to spend more for our defense and the U. S. Needs Europeans, European allies which are stronger, which are able to take their part they're sharing the Belgian So we are doing that. Where increasing nationally, our defense budgets, friends in particular, but not only friends and well also developing new defense capacities defense instruments at the level of the European Union. One of the major policies that the U. S and Europe will work together under my administration is Iran nuclear deal? Of course, Is it sufficient if the Iranians return to compliance in the Iran nuclear deal and the U. S joins or do you want the via administration to try and gain concessions before lifting sanctions? You know, opposition has always been and our president has made it clear already three years ago that we have to keep the G C p away. It's a constant position by France, the United Kingdom in Germany that so called the three because we need the disappear way for fighting during this proliferation of nuclear weapons. On the other end, we recognized and we have always recognized that there are other issues in the original security shoes, ballistic issues which have to be to be treated to be to be looked at, and we We think that which is now being discussed both U. S and Iran getting back into compliance with the gist spirit is really a very important step. But do you fear at all that If the U. S returns to compliance in Iran returns to compliance, the U. S will lose leverage created by the Trump Administration sanctions. Over 1500 people on institutions that have helped push the Iranian economy really to the brink. Well, Nick. What we're looking at right now is that Iran? Also he is no more in complaints with such a spirit and the situation is more and more risk in terms of proliferation. It is almost the fifth anniversary of the Paris climate accords. Joe Biden has said the U. S will reenter those accords. What difference does it make? If Joe Biden follows through on his promise on January, 20th Way. It makes a big difference because we need here to like in other domains, no American leadership because it's a global change. And we need the U. S. To address his global challenge. The comeback of the United States the appointment of somebody like John Kerry, who has been one of the most active negotiators of the Paris Climate agreement. All of this is positive for the work, which is very important, which we have to do in the future. Global emissions are expected to drop this year. But as you know that that's expected to be temporary, a new U. N report says wealthier countries need to triple their pledges in order to limit the Earth warning. Isn't that the reality of the threat that we all face even more than the US or the Europeans have admitted so far? We have always been, I think honest. We have recognized that we must increase our efforts and by the way, the Paris agreement is also about each partner each country. All countries united in disagreement have said they will step by step, review the national commitments and we need to increase those national commitments the European nations have increased their financial contribution to the green climate fan. We have one direction. Kalba neutrality in 2050 and intermediary Mind, Stone and one of the mind Stone, which the European leaders will be discussing today or tomorrow in Brussels is about 2030 increased the level of ambition of the European Union. So it is not only about words. It's about Really actions believe it in France's ambassador, United States Thank you very much. Thank you, Nick. Thank you very much for having me.
