"February, we've reported our results and we mind somewhere around 35 Bitcoin per day. Of course, scientific. We also have a large hosting facility that and I don't remember the numbers, but we host a lot of other third party equipment also. So we're a large minor. I think in February, we reported mining more coins than any other publicly traded company. They just don't like me to say the word largest. Okay, but that's about just over 3% of the Bitcoin every day. Yeah, so the every day, there's 900 plus some transactional ones, right? So let's call it a thousand. So yeah, a little over 3%, right? Yeah. So it's pretty fucking big. So look, you remember when I was happy when we were getting like .001. I've spent most of this year mining with my 5 S 19s and I'm getting closer to our Bitcoin. That's great. So but you're pretty fucking big. You've built out data centers. You have to source power. We are at a time where there are people who are concerned about what's happening with the climate and energy usage. Bitcoin as a total contributor to carbon in the atmosphere. It's not huge, but that does have a lens on it at a time when people are considering this. What is the main FUD and but also now I'll come back to the next question. What is the main thud for you? So I'll talk about this. Let me give you some perspective. Because I looked a lot in terms of the history of analog systems becoming digital systems. And the very first thing that you see from an analog system becoming a digital system are the legacy players they get disrupted and they get pretty angry. Historically, if you look way back to, I mean, I think my favorite example is Ptolemy said that the solar system resolved revolved around the Planet Earth and all religious dogma at the time said we were the center of the universe..

"You can look at some upcoming directions or transits or whatever and think, oh my God, it's going to be terrible, but then when you're on the ground, maybe it is terrible, but it's terrible in a whole different way than you thought. And it's very different. It always looks and feels different when you're inhabiting the map, so to speak. So it's sort of like, you don't want to inject any existential dread into a client you want to be doing your best to remove it. So that often there's a mixture. I think lily said mixed discretion with art. That's like the best way to put that, I think. Sure. I think it was and you said that. I might be misquoting, but I think it was lily. Yeah, well, he's full of good quotes like that, so I'm sure. There's something close to that. So on the one hand, I want to say, so it's good at least, you know, this is something you're conscious of and being conscious of it and trying to exercise as much caution and in trying to not do any harm to the client, it's not something where somebody, let's say, some skeptics might accuse the astrologers of, you know, if they're being really uncharitable, the worst case scenario, not considering those things or not taking into account the possibilities of inducing, like you said, a no sibo, the opposite of positive placebo effect. So that's something that's really important and just in terms of being conscientious as a practitioner. And then with respect to the other thing you were saying, I guess since you're working with a symbol system, there is a certain amount of flexibility or malleability in terms of the potential outcome that you have a range of potential outcomes when you've read the symbolism of the chart, but that there's probably a worst case scenario in interpreting that symbol. And then there's probably a moderate scenario and a best case scenario. So one of the things you're saying is just that while still interpreting the placements within the context and the constraints of the symbolism, you're still wanting to lean a little bit more towards at least saying what some of your best case scenarios are given what's shown up in the charts. That's beautifully put, Chris, yes, thank you. Yeah, that's exactly right. And I think we see that in life all the time. I often say that water finds its own level and that's for both good and bad and what I mean by that is we see this as astrologers with clients all the time. You might be sort of giving them sort of saying, why don't you, your chart has this aspect? Why don't you do this thing? And they're like, oh, I'm already doing that, you know? Like what are people find their own niches, but they've also find their own vices and ruts, you know? Ruts and niches. So water finds its own level. You tend to find that the astrological symbolism will show up in both difficult and constructive ways and our jobs as astrologers, I believe, is to maximize the constructive manifestation by signposting those potentials and directing clients towards them. That makes sense. Okay. And that, you know, I think that approach goes all the way back to Ptolemy because while some of the other strollers during that time period in the first couple centuries, CE and the Roman Empire had more of a stoic approach that the purpose of astrology was just to find out what your future is. So you knew what to accept ahead of time, Ptolemy, who had more versatility and tendencies used explicitly in medical analogy. And he said that sometimes with astrology, if the person isn't conscious of the indication and does nothing, then yeah, the astrologically expected outcome will be what manifests. However, if the person becomes conscious of the possibilities and makes an effort to either counteract or counterbalance them or change things in some way, then they may be able to change the trajectory of things even if only slightly. And that counts for some things. So part of your philosophy, I feel like it goes all the way back and has that lineage going all the way back to the second century. And I've probably absorbed it by osmosis. I don't think I'm quite as diligent a catalog of these things as you Chris I sort of magpie them together over time, I think. Native Jupiter and Gemini. Will that influence so much of the subsequent astrological tradition through Ptolemy that there's just that is the definition of which there have been branches and hundreds of branches of different astrologers and practitioners that medieval and renaissance and modern periods that have grown and expanded on that philosophy, I was just sort of tracing it back to something I have referenced to in the area that I specialize in more whereas others might be fantastic. It's really good. I mean, you're absolutely right. It probably doesn't originate from there. It's sort of, yeah. It goes back to that sort of thing about the antidote in ignorance thing, you know? So yeah, as well as our earlier discussion about nexuses and roots and going back and everything, doing the same thing, but just in terms of the history of astrology. Okay, so time frames and severity, those are part of really what the potential is that's important here to be able to identify what's unique potentially and to be able to identify sometimes in addition to outcomes with the astrology and with things like consultation or to combat your charts, but those are potentially modifiable factors as one of the important take home lessons for you here. Yes, definitely. Well, sometimes, sometimes probably more accurate. All.

"This was identified as a problem. And Sam Reynolds, for example, worked together with more in Albanian from the northwest astrology conference in order to set up diversity scholarships and that's been hugely influential in helping things in terms of conferences and getting people to conferences and fixing an issue that was identified in the community that needed somebody to be proactive in step up to actually do something to make that change. So people should think about that and think about sometimes in an identifying these issues. Sometimes it's something where somebody else isn't going to always fix the problem and come up with the idea, but sometimes you yourself if you've identified it, it's sort of on you to step up to figure out what needs to be done or what you can start and initiate in order to make some sort of change that you want to see happen in the community. And although you use the word diversity and I think that would cover what I'm going to say on some levels it didn't enough to stop another organization from being created and that the queer astrology conferences because this whole, you know, we have not only ethnic diversity, but we have gender diversity and gender fluidity that is something that's so important that is just another thing that has been addressed by something coming into being. And so what I'm suggesting here, Chris, is that although we may have, we may have the need to look at a lot of particular things and proactively address them. I think that as a community, we've done a damn good job of addressing things at least in the past ten, 20 years, even a few years in keeping us ahead of some of those curves, at least that's how it seems to me. Sure, yeah. I mean, there's definitely been a lot of progress. I guess the takeaway is just that sometimes it involves individual people stepping up when they see something in the way that the community is not representing them or not representing people that they think should be more important or there's some issue in the community and taking it into their own hands in order to enable an enact some sort of change and that's just a good thing for people to go forward even with issues that we haven't even identified here that we are self due to our own blind spots can't see or even that the established commute astrological community can't see because that's a blind spot or something that's been taken for granted. There will be somebody in the coming years or decades that sort of identifies something and just knowing that maybe they could or can step up that that's good information to have. Another example of that is that going back 30 years ago, you had conferences that were attended by and I'm making these statistics up, but you know, I would argue that there are at least in the ballpark, but you had conferences that were attended by 80% women, and yet the lecturers were 90% men. Now, that is something that was also absolutely specifically addressed. By various organizations at various times, and you now see that gender equanimity is something that, you know, if there is an imbalance, it seems that there's still less men who attend conferences as participants because they already know it all. But there's certainly been more of an equality of gender so you have on who's who's at the speaker's podium, and that was a problem in the past, and that's another thing that has been or it has been and is continually addressed on a regular basis. You know, and one other thing when we talk about the future of astrology, that I think is something that's easy to forget about. I mean, we talk about the advent of computers. And in some ways, in some ways, the future of astrology is already here. I mean, can you imagine, you know, Claudius Ptolemy or Johannes Kepler, looking over your shoulder as you're working with some software program, I mean, it's like those calculations took day. I mean, the reason why only royalty had their charts done is that it took sightings and hours and hours of calculations to get to a place where we can get to in about 20 seconds. If that. And it's not just the speed at which it happens, what that means is that astrology has become an open door. To a whole population of people who would never learn how to do logarithmic interpolations and solutions to spherical triangles and all the calculations and the intense heavy math that we had to do as astrologers until that shifted over to a computer. So we're now getting waves of professional astrologers who it's akin to, if you were into cars back in the 1910s, you had to know how to, you know, fix your timing belt and change the oil in your carcass. There were no surface stations. You know, and so to some extent, I get in my car, I drive it. I don't even know where the damn timing belt is. I don't even know if there is one on newer car. I have no idea. Yeah, there is. But the point is that I don't need to know, I don't need to be the mechanic in order to know how to drive the car. And this is a deep discussion that astrologers have had because many of the certification exams require astrologers to be able to calculate a chart by hand. And I'm not suggesting that I'm not suggesting that double negative here. I'm not suggesting that that's not a good idea. That probably is a good idea. But the fact of the matter is that, just like I can get in my car and drive it, the fact that someone can go on the Internet hit a couple of buttons and see an entire chart in front of them and go right into left hand right brained analysis of the psychological and or spiritual dimensions without having to cross through the terrain of the swamp of mathematics and signs and cosines and whatever is another huge thing that I think makes astrology so much more accessible.

"Husbands, harried wives and a few cute kids. Series set in outer space or in a fantasy realm where the political conflicts echo our own. There's comfort in familiarity to be sure, but it's a rare pleasure these days to encounter a premise that feels genuinely original. One such story is the last days of Ptolemaic gray, the absorbing 6 part Apple TV plus miniseries that creator Walter Mosley adapted from his own 2010 novel. Samuel L. Jackson embraces vulnerability in his portrayal of the title character, an elderly man with dementia, who lives in urban squalor, surrounded by the detritus of a long, tough life. Most of the time he drifts around aimlessly in his own memory. With only his visions of his surrogate father, coy dog, played by Damon gupton, and late wife since, played by Cynthia K mcwilliams for company. Then, with his mental decline accelerating, Ptolemy loses his nephew and caretaker, Reggie. Omar Benson Miller in that role, whose murder he registers only after stumbling upon the open casket at a gathering in the younger man's honor. At the same event, Ptolemy is introduced to 17 year old Robin Dominique fishback from Judas and the Black Messiah, an orphaned family friend who used to care for her addict mother. She is to be his new live in helper, and she turns out to be a great one, pushing right past Ptolemaic stubbornness and incoherence to clean up his wreaking apartment and restore some dignity to his existence. They form a bond so pure and so fierce that it almost seems Supernatural. There is, in fact, a single sci-fi element in the series, one of Reggie's last acts was to enroll Ptolemy in a mysterious clinical trial, administered by a certain doctor Rubin, played by Walton Goggins, who promises to temporarily restore Ptolemaic memory, and wits, the experimental treatment would allow him to settle decades worth of urgent, unfinished business. But, at what cost? None of this is Terra incognita for Hollywood. In many ways, the protagonist we meet in the first episode of Ptolemaic gray resembles Anthony Hopkins character in last year's best picture nominee the father, lost in the morass of his own mind, always falling through trapdoors to alternate realities, touching tales of intergenerational friendship, aren't so hard to find either, and the substance of Ptolemy's quest and the medical technology that enables it, engages with one of the most pressing and frequently explored issues of our time, anti black, racism. What feels so fresh and so successful thanks to stunning performances from Jackson and fishback, is the boldness with which Moseley combines seemingly incompatible elements. He deftly weaves together the devastation that follows betrayal and the uplift of found family, science fiction, and stark realism, character development, and sociopolitical commentary. When Ptolemy dubs, Ruben, Satan, the faustian nature of their bargain becomes undeniable. Goggins underplays Rubens reaction complicating the white man's role through grim self awareness. There's more than one way to talk about love, grief, and justice, and inherited trauma. Fiction offers the unique chance to interpolate old themes in new metaphors, reinvigorating crucial conversations bogged down by cliche, and Ptolemy gray, Moseley uses that capability like the superpower, it is. The last days of Ptolemaic gray debuted march 11th on Apple TV plus..

"17 year old girl who winds up caring for Ptolemy after Reggie's death She begs him not to take the treatment but ptolemies got a pretty good counter argument So let's flip this Really what What if it's you Who smelled like body weights We got the mind of a child and a grown woman's body What would you do And don't say you jump out of window You can't even remember how to open the damn thing up You don't know whether to hate your condition or to hate yourself You feel all that The whole time Jackson and Walter Moseley one of literature's most lauded crime novelists spent more than a decade searching for an outlet willing to make this project The actor wanted to tell the story because family members including his mother and grandfather suffered from dementia It's as if the world of streaming had to evolve enough to make room for a mini series that evokes everything from the trauma often embedded in black families histories to the tuskegee experiment It pays much more attention to the struggle for a black man to come to terms with his own past than any kind of murder mystery This story takes on a lot Not everyone will love it But the last days of Ptolemy gray is also a powerful showcase for one of Hollywood's best playing a man who sacrifices everything to redeem his family and fulfill his life's purpose America.

"Fixed star, there's 6 stars of Draco on both of the angles of this chart. The fixed star theban, which is alpha Draco. It used to be a pole star. Thousands of years ago. And will be again. It will be again. Many more thousands of years later, but it's on the mid heaven. On the mid heaven and arrakis, which is the tongue or mouth of Draco is on the ascendant. So think about this for a second. You've got the mouth. And what do dragons do? They spew fire and or poison out of their mouth. And so here you have everyone's supposed to wear a mask because we're the dragons that could spew the poison, right? And here's the thing. That does the nature Ptolemy says that because it's a dragon that these stars are of the nature of Mars and Saturn there. Yeah, and there's cars and there's bars applying to conjoined Saturn down there. Right? And then on the other angle, on the descendant, and this is these are all within a degree. We have the asteroid a sclerosis. Which is on the descent and I'm just like, that really was just kind of far out to me of like I mean, on the one hand, I don't necessarily always put asteroids in a chart because it could be confusing and more of a distraction than anything. But if it's right there on the angle and it's related to focus on that. It's like, wow, it's so and the whole idea that the symbol for a scorpius was a snape coiling around the staff and there we have The Serpent. Once again, and there's this idea of the mRNA vaccines that are dealing with DNA is like serpents twining around the staff. Yeah. So yeah, it's kind of a weird signature there.

And he also writes dates sometimes like what date he was writing a certain passage so that you were able to date it, she was able to date it to the middle and second half of the 15th century and that he was living in France. Yeah, exactly. The core of the work, and she would love to be here explaining this to you. Is to demonstrate the practice of astrology that earnest strategy of that period. Because most of what we know about this practice comes from primers, you know, source books. Not from practical examples of the application of knowledge, you know? Yeah, so we have a lot of from the past 2000 years like instructional texts where somebody like Ptolemy sits down and writes four books to outline the theory of astrology and these are all the techniques and this is the theory of how this works, but sometimes they don't even have chart examples like Ptolemy, for example, doesn't have any chart examples, but this for the first time was actually.

So if you have ripe Citrus fruit on your trees, you may want to pick them. If they're not ripe, then you will want to cover it with a frost cloth or something that extends all the way to the ground. A lot of people had put this dainty little towel over there. Citrus trees that doesn't do much good. You have to have a big enough cloth. Frost cloths are preferable because frost claws allow air and water through to extend all the way down to the ground and then secure it to the ground at the outer canopy of the tree.

So frost cloths. Citrus likes water. Long as it's well drained. Moist soil, especially in containers could go a long way to protecting plants from a frost or a freeze. So if you have containerized plants, give them a good drink of water. Use your frost cloths. If you want to string the Christmas lights, the old sea sevens or CH or see nines.

"To a three sixty five day year was inexplicably made by many different widespread cultures at around seven fifty bc. The time belakovsky claims that a close approach by mars change the orbit of earth likewise significant cooling of earth's climate is reported to have just happened just following this proposed lengthening of the calendar year. That's cool yup. Some scientists attribute the rotational residents of venus earth to tidal forces. This is sorry to say this twelfth. Some scientists attribute the rotational residents of venus earth title forces. These same title forces provide one possible mechanism by which the orbit of venus could have become circularize. Okay so he is talking about tidal forces between earth and venus okay other researchers claim that variable drag caused by the tail of a comet is capable of circularize circularizing. Its orbit thirteen. Based on current both ptolemy and copernicus seemingly miscalculated the timing of the risings and settings venus and both apparently misportrayed the moon like phases of venus in drawings. So yeah i get into this in detail. But the phases of venus as a planet which similar to the phases of the moon depend on where we are in relation to where it is but the sun both of these guys not only got the orbital patterns of venus wrong but all the phases are weird right. These findings of ptolemy and copernicus are in disagreement both with each other and with modern sources taken together. They support the notion that venus was out of its present orbit and that its orbit could theoretically have been changing as recently as fifteen hundred ce common era. so wait were they. Being their observations were happening at the same time know. Their observations alemi was much earlier. I think than so so there are different times. And if you take one and try to run that it doesn't line up with the other one right which means it was changing the two okay right. Copernicus variations from from the modern stuff is much less than ptolemies who was early. So yeah the one that saw so if you take anyone as a static idea and run the model from there they don't line up with anything else yeah so it has to be influx an influx in transition from one thing to another to from from is i'm ancient thing to two now the modern circularize the orbit the now regular right and it's.

I mean, If you think about it that that seems like when, When you see those things happen. They tend to sort of escalate a situation from the police response perspective, too. I mean, we've seen that with some of the The situation is here in the streets. Yeah. Yeah, Okay. But see, we're angle Would you get in my district Police in England were from dress port area so they didn't feel community relationships. They didn't bring the police even from the community should be actor to represent who may have relationships with with whipped community and the police said the last crime scene, they said online that was there. And guess what they want to cross that line before they ended. The police was in the middle of the block between 50 50 56 which means they so played the crafting and so the new of the actual community block, which tells me that they continue to draft in on the community, so I think it's about having control on both ears, and I was glad to be able to play a role. I can come out there and try to help both on on both hands. Just the brain piece, but it's good to have people like me. I think the city investment more organized than individuals who are willing to step up and do this. We need a change maker then and we need them all around the city. With incidents like this is a turn People who have relationships within the community. That's a huge gap. There were emissions. The relationships aren't there anymore, And then we wonder why things happen. The mayor's office and everyone had to be willing to really feel key to loony relationships and not just Delicious but be Willinto Act. Well, I think that that is that is a part of the solution. And you seem to be a part of it to Andi. It feels to me as if Superintendent round is three weeks old were not happy that those officers didn't have. Body cams were told that the reason Many calling, saying they don't even want to build a relationship with community happening, even work in the community, so a lot of things that we have to work it. There's something that I think need to be twist a little bit to really make it make sense, but police have Teo get back involved, and and you have to be more officers slowly and be willing to mediate conflicts in de Escalate, not get upset because of two mil you'd upset You don't know what action you go to the oppression and the fight that we go through every day Half anything could possibly triggered individuals into me. So you have to become a turkey with open arms. You have to be willing to listen and be willing to work with people. Why wouldn't this Sunday was offices used for saying it was all this is the aggressive and pushed people. You have Children and women out there. Probably There's something a little different, you know, and across the land that they said little sales. They sent a letter in there. They crossed the most work fast, because if I wasn't there, but you know I have seen in some of the looting situations. You've seen it, too it in some of the protests, even that there's a lot going the other way. The police are being attacked. Also, the mace, the bricks, the bottles, everything being thrown at them. Broken bones, that whole thing. It's just that I don't I don't know how that helps, either. You don't know that. And that definitely leads to an escalation. Absolutely agree, but also I have to continue to say what I say because you gotta look at root issues where things come up from the anger and the hatred is built for minutes starts right within our communion of how the police relationships out with us. So they devalued and go downtown..

They're closed off, and so you don't have to worry about cars. It's just a stage coach. That runs through town, but no car So yeah, the kids can, they can wander freely in the streets of Colombia.

But you can still taste cider. You can have a short hiking trail that I call it the old mind trail. You can take a picnic out there. They have corn hall. You could take your dogs again.

A Long and Winding Journey For Some Drinking Water

"Thousands of years before Checchi was a reservoir, the valley was home to several native American tribes. The name Hetch hetchy probably derived from the me. Walk Word Hatch, Hatschi, which means edible grasses, the valley floor would have been full of them, and they were important food source, but in nineteen twenty-three those grasses were buried under billions of gallons of water when the reservoir was finished to find the answers to the rest of Alex and heath questions, reporter Sara Craig, found herself someplace unexpected in the hills of San Bruno. We've arrived just in time to catch some action at the Harry Tracy Water Treatment Plant. Really, high. Spillover! VERICOSE OH, wow! Drinking water from all over is getting filtered here to move large and small particles, but water from hetch Hetchy is so pure. It doesn't need to get filtered although it does get disinfected with chlorine, an ultra violet light. Let's start at the very very beginning where the water starts, that's. And she's joined by Suzanne, Goatee. They work for San Francisco's Public Utilities Commission and a ton about Hetch hetchy water. They tell us it all starts high in the SIERRAS so high. The water isn't water. It's snow. The snow that we're talking about. Is this know that falls on the Twala me. River watershed, which is four hundred ninety two square miles. That's about the size of this city of La all the snow in that watershed Melton to the TWALA me river and three smaller creeks which empty into the Hetch hetchy reservoir. On average per year at San Franciscans consume would be equal to a foot of snow covering that Ptolemy River watershed. To put this into perspective, it takes five feet of snow to fill the hole reservoir once-melted that water leaves the reservoir from o'shaughnessy Dam. And then so look at this map. It travels through a whole series of tunnel so here we're moving through the mountain tunnel. In along the way it goes through hydroelectric dams that generous about seventeen percent of San Francisco's electricity. Did you know that the power from Hetch hetchy from water. That's what actually powers your school. Yeah, I. I go to Jefferson Yeah, it probably yeah. Yeah not even the the Muny Light Rail that you've seen San Francisco Yup. I ride on those sometimes. The water travels downhill the whole. Rushing through tunnels drilled through solid granite. PIPELINES LINED WITH CONCRETE Picture a giant underground waterslide, twisting around mountains and under rivers, and then it takes about three days for the water to get over here all the way into San Francisco. Is. Kinda long, isn't it but yeah, okay only three days sure. It would take a long that do like four or five as maybe a week will need. It's not a bad guests. How do you know that it takes three days? Did you send like some kind of a probe in the water to to time it? We have flow meters throughout the system. and. Yes yes, it'll tell you how much water is moving through what pipeline so we do a little bit of math and you say one hundred sixty seven miles. At three feet per second equals about eighty three hours, but those eighty three hours are rough estimate because operators are always releasing different amounts of water, depending on how much people use. Okay any takes us outside to where some of our drinking water is stored. We're standing on a hill, looking down at a huge tank that holds eleven million gallons. So this is one of those places where we regulate shifts in demand on a daily basis. It's white.

"One story that dominated both global and regional markets this week the deadly coronavirus on choosing the head of the World Health Organization visited Beijing to assess China's response to the crisis that came as the country reported more than four and a half thousand cases and more than hundred the Ptolemies we are more with the Merck's Chris at sea in Tokyo and Simon Ballard as well he's the chief economist at first up and down the back South Korea and rubber was off yesterday so they're essentially catching up not only to the declines in Asia yesterday but even the the Friday's selloff on Wall Street so the Korean markets had a lot of catching up to do which explains why there are particularly hard hit today Australia also under performing but if you look just in the afternoon session here we're seeing some signs of easing in the selling pressure so the the Nikkei is off of its lows it's only down about point six percent that's about half its it's declined from earlier today we're seeing Chinese stock futures also coming back just a little bit some interesting headlines just scrolling saying that China is telling brokerages to be rational in what they're telling investors they're telling people don't you know stored pricing and you know do stay here China's foreign minister saying that China has the tools to win this war against the virus so there's a little bit of a sense of you know you you can see governments taking action here you can see here they understand the scale of the problem so that's providing some reassurance I was going to follow up on that actually the efforts are definitely picking up the scale of the undertaking significant but as you look to the comfort of global coordination there is the reality of global economic disruption is that what the market really needs to start factoring in yeah well you got the situation where you know that there's going to be a significant you know near term had to Chinese grows to gross really across the globe if you think about the impact that Chinese consumers have through tourism or you think about the disruption to the global supply chain so you've got this short term impact but then you've got the assumption that once the disease passes they'll be rebound so number of economists are saying you know what I'm not going to change my full year twenty twenty projection for global growth for even Chinese growth at this point I'm just gonna assume that we're going to see see some growth shift from the first half into the second half nobody really rushing to mark down their full year forecasts just yet but the you know the bottom line is we don't know really how big of an impact this is going to have you know we're still a ways away from the peak of the number of infections from a peak in the number of deaths unfortunately so until we get a clearer picture in the next week and a half or two it's going to be you know guess work on the part of economists and investors alike Chris thank you very much Chris and see that in Tokyo running up the latest market action our guest host this morning a sign of ballot chief economist at first the Debbie bank something good to see this morning so we read are trying to pull with the contagion and the impact all of this active gold ring story I've seen the first number sent to me this morning from mentor partners that Chinese growth could be started by a hundred to two hundred basis points took me through the global impact of a contraction in China grows by night two percent in the first two quarters of this year if that's the scenario yeah and that's exactly that's exactly the wrist that with with with with facing today in terms of you know listen to the director general of the of the W. H. O. now add in China so the pining again I think we just looking for further clarity from them as to whether they still see it as a as a domestic relatively contained issue or whether there's a reserve a space into a more global pathogen I suppose of the sauce two point zero if we go back to two thousand to two thousand three at the sauce event you know that triggers your view previous because said a serious downturn in economic activity in the region especially in China where it shaved about one percent just over one percent of Chinese GDP triggered a recession in Hong Kong that was the time when GDP in China still managed to increase between two thousand two to the end of two thousand three from seven percent to eight percent when now talking if you recall about the risk the last month of of of moving to sub six percent GDP territory with China we didn't get that we held a six percent as you know as per consensus as per Beijing's expectations but usually one percent off that now when you go into the five percent you could possibly to high four percent level on Chinese GDP if this Haroon of ours continues to mutate and and and and and spread something that because we've seen in the commodities space where is that going to hand because the phone so the market's life team put exactly that question to our audience question of the day coming through then how far will the corona virus related to climb the commodities extends this something that is going to be as severe as we've seen in the past with some of these events or are people going to focus on the global growth forecast for twenty twenty staying intact I think people still gonna focus on that twenty twenty growth full cost overruled the news flow the headlines and the the volatility that we see in the market over the next couple of weeks if if not being honest about us a couple of days is going to be key in terms of one what happens in the bond market in the what happens in the commodity market is probably a reflection of the overrule sort of risk of this nature of investor sentiment at the service station you know it's raining it's pouring but this study no room for you know the old man to be snowing in the back and you could be what you all the elements that we see this you say no the ten year round it down to one sixty that hit one forty five back in September is mass was talking about earlier on so you know if we do see sort of negative connotations coming from the WHL if we continue to see you know this mutation I'm a and an expanse of cases and remember we were two thousand to two thousand seven hundred cases on Monday work for the whole thousand today I'm hearing them doubling serving twenty four appeared we could soon be about a thousand that we had in the sauce in our back in two thousand and three and that's with then good sort of Dr you know Dr risk aversion hiring drive that taking a yield back through the one fifty back down towards the one fifty if not one forty five no and certainly dampened expectations for commodity prices in terms of your expectations for slower global growth environment in outlook Simon can we just take this a little bit further with central bank reaction we see the market we price from the fat mother was when I pricing twenty five basis points back to back that was originally in a in the front of twenty twenty one to the market is already beginning to price central bank action it does that come across your timeline intends the fat in terms the PTO see if I emphasize the what if there is Dayton the mutation as you say in numbers activists scale of a real global pandemic and that's that's a huge plus a huge different of course all the time the time is made a little different this week by the fact we've got the FOMC on Wednesday with bank of England which is more of a coin toss with the bank of England on Thursday and as you say in the futures market was looking for that first all that additional twenty five basis point cut to come in in two thousand twenty one because of the risk of ocean nature of market sentiment at eleven that's brought forward into so the queue for October you know depending on the news flow over the next twenty four hours I really don't think the fed's going to cut you know this month they suggested they stated previously that I'm very comfortable with the level of accommodation and it would need a meaningful event to trigger a sort of a moving rates from from where they are today you know for the time being you know the the crown of ours doesn't seem to be that meaningful event in order to to trigger the fed but certainly it's it's it's bringing a more dovish rhetoric into the market place now then we had done it earlier this month

Alistair Bathgate Alistair, Founder And US discussed on Financial Issues

"Now, let's turn to our next guest and joining us in the studio. We've got blue presumes C E O and founder Alistair Bathgate Alistair, welcome. So we've heard this morning that blue prison is buying Tony for a consideration of up to eighty million pounds of British tech firm. You released your half year earnings this morning as well reporting, a thirty four million pound loss in EBay, da, that said sales, and revenue climbs. Now analysts were expecting as much with Marion global investors saying that blue prism. You're an automation software maker could remain a high growth business for many years. So growth is one thing profitability is another Alistair. When do you expect to become profitable? Well at the moment, we see a vast global market, and we're expanding in a whole range of territories and that requires investment in mocks in an insane. I'm not comes in revenues. So this is a great British global expansion story as you say revenues up by eighty two percent possibly US, revenues doubled. We secure at three hundred forty nine new customers, and which means customer base has gone up by a third in just six months. So this is a rapid growth story. And for the moment, we feel that investing in growth is thing to do, but you have been around for quite some time, and I suppose, that's why the questions although bound for feasibility. I mean I'd love to know what you think is going to help potentially drive the turnaround in profits. Ability, I noticed expanding in new countries. And so how do you. You, how'd you basically turn turn that story around him and you've been around for more than a decade now where we know we have a fundamentally a profitable business model. We were profitable in the year before we I appeared on one of the reasons that we went public with today's funds to grow and to invest ahead of that growth, as you can imagine when you went to a new temporary. Let's say the Middle East where we have recently you have to make investments in marketing and people in sales. People also we have to make investments in product as well ahead of that growth coming back. So that's the story of why and how we invest in right now. Yeah, the acquisition of full Ptolemy announced this morning and tell us the rationale behind that is that because you're concerned that you're not going to be able to achieve that profitability through Ganic growth known of has been a partner since twenty fifteen. The product that Bill is based on technology is built on the platform. So it's a very logical acquisition for us, what they've created as a off an intelligent, automation platform based prison, plus other technologies combined. They've turned into a software as a service cloud, offering based on Microsoft has a not is particularly suited to the mid tier. And so this is a new product for us. Okay. So that's the autonomy acquisition. The is also an issue around. Around short interest in prison. When you look at the amount that you have route edgy mentioned that, that you are. You've run a two thousand two hundred percents. This thing is a huge rise, but short interest in prison has actually climbed above five percent in the past month, what he make that I think, when you were highly wretched stock as you say, the people will bet on some volatility on, you know, you just have to live with that went on building a short term, shot price hair. We're trying to build a business for the long term. Those show interest, though, did reach a record last month. So what would you say to convince those that may be on just simply betting on volatility, but actually have concerns around the stock? What would you have to convince them again back to this issue of the lack of profitability? I would say, look at the graph look at the figures look at the growth in revenues look at the growth in customers these three hundred and forty-nine new customers have valid that toes in the water and we've got so many of our customer base at the early stages of adoption and then look attention on manuals rights renews, extraordinarily high, and then look, up selling a stars, and that have very strong as well. This is an engine built for growth and global growth. And so our choice to invest and go underwater on the line because we think it's going to generate gripe for the future. But some point we can get uptight off on investment, and very quickly, when the company will become a customer from profitable also, very interesting, of course, because your UK gray story, not just a u k one not actually a London based company, but base in the north of England in Warrington tapping into a university of Manchester university. So with that in mind, you're not basis, Silicon Valley, although your tech firm, how'd you see Brexit at this stage? What does that mean in terms of bringing on new people? So proud of you obviously coming from the north west of England monkey union university as where the computer was invented. And so. Yeah. I bullish sorry.

Sometimes there's a series of events that take place and sometimes they're relatively close together. And other times they're kind of spread out. So identifying that is super important one of the tricks that I use that's really useful to keep in mind when you're trying to figure out what the most symbolically important beginning is is that you can kind of liken, inception, beginnings or election beginnings to the issue in Natal astrology that you run into which is conception versus birth where conception for for example, for Claudius Ptolemy in the second century the way that he explains this as he says that conception is like the inception or the beginning the Qatar of the physical body, but the actual birth. Of the individual is the actual inception or beginning of their life. When they emerge from the mother as a separate being that separate the mother's body, and they actually begin their life. That's actually the moment of the birth chart because that's the moment of the inception of the life as a whole rather than just their physical or material body, right? And I kind of relates to the issue of sometimes the most most important symbolic moment can be when you finalize the beginning of something which sounds kind of like an turn of phrase. But for instance, this comes up a lot with weddings, for instance. So I think both you and I kind of consider the moments where they say I do and are pronounced married the beginning of the wedding or sorry, the beginning of the marriage because prior to that time, they're not really married yet. Even though the ceremony has started. For instance, like we consider that to be the most symbolically significant moment in terms of the marriage between those two individuals, even though technically. Also signing the marriage certificate, and even though that usually happens closely afterwards, and we'll try to use roughly the same election chart, or at least close to it as possible if we can to get both of those things like saying, I do like completing the house completing the ceremony and also signing the marriage certificate, roughly with the same rising sign of the same election chart, the one that will focus on more is the one that's more symbolically significant, which is the moment that the two of them say I do right. And I always liked to joke invited serious to you that, you know, if one of them were to walk off in the middle of the ceremony before that moment, they would not be considered Mary. No one would be considering the married because they hadn't actually vowed to be married yet. Right. And that's a good conception versus birth one as well. Because that's like the beginning of the marriage of their like legal union verses the conception of the marriage would be you. You know, the first when they first got together as a couple or their first meeting chart or something like that. And like with weddings to you know, you can try like anything that has multiple moments that might be important like you said the marriage certificate or perhaps even the beginning of the ceremony. I think that's less important to the marriage itself..
