"45 powered by Red River, technology decisions aren't black and white. Think red. Ten 15 what's up in raby? Hey, John, we're talking commanders and Taylor heinecke grabbing all the headlines of late, but as the commanders have won 5 of their last 6, it could draw on Rivera's defense a big reason why. I think the defense has really come together and that's a tribute to Jack and the defensive staff. It's attributed to young players that are developing and growing as attributed to the player leadership that they have. Commanders defense ranks third in the NFL over the past 5 weeks in both points allowed and yards allowed and there was some hope that chase young could rejoin that defense and make his season debut today against Atlanta that said young ruled out due to illness starting defensive back Benjamin saint Jews also out with an ankle injury but her own rob wood fork telling the D.C. sports subtle, he still likes the commander's chances against the 5 and 6 falcons. I think Washington does win. The falcons are not particularly great at anything except for running the ball. There are third in the league in terms of average rushing yards per game, Washington is uniquely suited with those two big tackles, the Alabama boys in the middle to put a stop to that or at least limit that. So I'm gonna go ahead and say Washington wins 27 to 17. Catch the entire episode of the D.C. sports huddle on Apple iTunes, the podcast D.C. app or wherever you get your podcasts elsewhere around the NFL.

"Xi Jinping will give the opening address to the 20th National Congress of the Communist Party of China. The weeklong event happens twice a decade. This year, it will celebrate the 100th anniversary of the establishment of the Communist Party of China. President Xi is expected to win a third term as president and general secretary of China's Communist Party. I spoke with Bloomberg opinions truly ran on white markets are seeing this particular party Congress as a line in the sand. First though, here's Australia's former ambassador to China Jeff raby on president Xi Jinping's constituency Sunday and beyond. China does have an institutional mechanism of governance, say, unlike Russia these days, and Xi Jinping is a servant of the party. So at the point at which the party feels that she is in some way undermining the parties, legitimacy, its support in the broader community, then elite members of the party could well start to question whether she is the right person to lead the party. Socially, is there any danger at all that she will not secure a third term at the party Congress or is it a foregone conclusion that obviously he will? I think it's a foregone conclusion already. I mean like he already went abroad one month ahead of schedule and this Congress is set to start in October instead of originally scheduled in November. So I think he has already this position locked up. Now, is it wishful thinking on the part of Wall Street and traders globally that president Xi will pivot to prioritizing the economy after the CPC, shifting away from COVID zero and so on? Is there any actual evidence that the CPC might be aligned in the sand and that he might change policies after that? I don't think it necessarily wishful thinking in part because I'm in that camp. I think it's just inevitable because holding on to the COVID zero policy is very, very expensive. The last two years, China was doing quite okay. In 2020 and 2021, so they had a little bit of fiscal room to hold down to COVID zero until the party progress. But 2023, where is the fiscal money coming from? And it's going to be very difficult for China to continue. They will have to pivot. But vaccine take up has been relatively low in China. Why not mandate vaccine take up and open the economy as opposed to allowing people choose on vaccinations, but having rolling lockdowns has there been much debate on vaccines in China? It's funny because you know the vaccination drive pretty much thought even after the Shanghai lockdown. I mean, my parents are in Shanghai, no one asked them to take any jobs. I think it's kind of forgone conclusion. Now, in Hong Kong, we have very similar problems. The elderly, they don't want to get vaccinated. Again and again, right? So Hong Kong still opens. What Hong Kong did was they called the 3000 elderly people and they do want to get back and almost all of them say no. So the Hong Kong governments that we just have to open. And I suspect that's what's going to happen to China. Even back then in 2020, when China was starting the vaccination chart, they started with the younger working population instead of the elderly. But Julie is there any talk of what might happen if China does open and the vaccination rate is low, hospitals might get overwhelmed. I mean, it might look something like the original pandemic here. Right now, we are seeing on the ground China has escaped from Delta and Delta was the bad one. So I think it should be okay. Very recently, there was a government document urgent county level local government to prepare themselves for a hospitalization. And some people on the marketplace see it as a sign that the China is preparing to reopen. And the vaccination rate is lower for the elderly, but for the broader population, if not low, people are chapped three times. Now, you mentioned the local governments, the local economies, to an extent president Xi has delegated fixing China's economy to the local municipalities. Do they have the resources to jump in if there's some kind of a crisis or some kind of an economic slowdown that they can't bear? No, that's the problem because COVID zero has been ongoing for too long. According to boggan Stanley, the Chinese government at the local level has been ¥2 trillion COVID zero control. I mean, that's just money wasted. And the local government also rely on land sales and that's not going very well as well. And that's why I think ultimately China just has to pivot away from COVID zero, perhaps because this is not going to work. So there's obviously the property market crisis that we heard a lot about over the last year. There's regulation around education around gaming and so on, but while we've seen a lot of bond holder pain, we haven't seen, for example, the kind of systemic crisis that we might have seen during the great financial crisis in the United States. Is there any reason to think that China is in danger of having one in the banking system or elsewhere? I think there is danger of a Chinese demon collab. If we see trouble with local government financing, developers that all the stuff that we see in the news headlines, a lot of it is U.S. dollar debt that offshore, right? But if we are talking about income bank liquidity free unsure, that will have to do with local government debt because they have issued a lot. Yeah, does she have any wish to attract overseas capital and mainland markets? I mean, clearly, at the moment he is a lot on his plate, he has to figure out how to handle Russia, the G 20 is coming up, and obviously the CPC is what he has to get past first. But at the same time, investor confidence has definitely been damaged during his second term. Any evidence to suggest that he might want to whoo investors again somehow? I think I hear not now or Kim Jong-un. I do feel that he still wants to reconnect with the world, right? Like he pretty much has not helped Russia during this Ukraine conflict. That shows that he doesn't want to be the pariah globally. And also the Chinese government has struck deals with the U.S. SEC to let the auditing committee or the Chinese companies accounting papers. And then also she is coming to G 20. So I think he still wants to connect with the world. What market indicators are most reliable for explaining the shape of China's markets? What do you look at these days? This is just the major benchmarks, truly, and the offshore and onshore bonds. I think for me, I still look at stocks because they are quite volatile and any hint of possibly China reopening. You are going to see pretty sharp bumps in power because their valuation is very, very low right now. So I will look at that. Will there be a yuan policy? We've obviously seen the yuan weakened dramatically as have we seen many currencies we can dramatically in the face of the dollar strength. But how does she and the PBOC interact will he have thoughts on how strong or weak that you want to be? I don't think they have a certain number, 7.47 .5. I mean, they are preparing the puppy saying, you know, whatever the UN is against, the stronger U.S. dollar strength. And then compared to the yen or the Euro or the British pound that you end up doing fairly well. And there is some incentive to be honest for the Chinese you want to be weaker because China still realize a lot of exports, right? Yeah, for sure. It's a double sided sword. What else will we hear out of the CPC? I mean, obviously, human rights will almost definitely not be addressed. But what else will we be looking for post CBC? I think that the most interesting thing for the Congress is the lineup who are what's the ranking of all the politicians. She is on top who is going to be the prime minister and who is going to be the head of the political spending committee. Because unfortunately, for economic policies, it used to be just economic policies people at the minister level. They can't just handle major decisions. But unfortunately, the economic policies have become political in the last few years. Take housing policy all COVID zero policy, for example. So who is on top understanding committee? It's going to be very important to watch. Bloomberg opinions shuli ren. Stay tuned, Tim Colton next on the evolving semiconductor standoff between

Mookie Betts makes history with another 3-home run game
"So mookie betts last. Night Raby. Three homers Ford does in a game for the sixth time in his career Johnny. Sammy Sosa the only other players do that and movie didn't in a thousand fewer games basically in Mayes and fifteen hundred fewer than So when you look our call you red sox fan but you grew up there for goodness sakes and you see mookie bats, the red sox traded away it off to a start like this and avenue another three homer game. What do you think? Well I. Think it happens on the same day that the red sox give up seventeen runs and look at a single late in the Celtics and Bruins I think both lost and the Patriots are going to start a season without Tom Brady I think this is I think this is a reminder of the come up in Boston sports fans are are about to have to deal with and the next few years now I mean look it's It's a tough pill to swallow for red SOx nation to know that.

Gary Player. There's the Tiger Woods Phil. Mickelson for Awhile, David Duval conversation. I, mean my child's GonNa. Have you know mookie Betts in Clayton Kershaw and that's what this group is going to be about and to know that he was once part of your franchise and now he's not and a franchise paid him a lot of money and you believe your franchise and was capable of doing the same. For those that are moving in dying with the Red Sox I know it sucks. It really really does it's It's just a it's just a reminder and he's got to be that guy we all grew up with them that. Whatever he does he does to a level that few others can do it. So the three six times you know that's the same guy that has four. That's the same guy that bowls three hundred games.

Interview with John Nunemaker About His Developer Career
"So John. What is your developer origin story yeah yeah what the basically the way it started as. I always enjoyed math and stuff like that in high school going way back and when I went to college I just started. I kind of assumed like there was some computer stuff going on so this was two thousand and two thousand four and a lot of stuff was was happening opening that seemed exciting and at the Ogden programming so I took some programming classes the first one I think was visual basic and I did well in the the class didn't really feel like I learned anything and then I took another class next semester that was see and the teacher was in my my opinion back then then it was hard core so it was like we were on Lenox. We learn how to compile. We were doing you know see and even some Pearl. I think also and I remember you're right out of the gate struggling big time I basically had not I basically learned how to program in the first class and so I I spent every office hours for the entire semester and pull my Grad from like an F. Which I had never had my entire life about three weeks into I think I ended up with like a b. Minus so ended up kind of getting the hang of it and and progressing then my senior year it would have been the end of my junior year. They had this major class where you could take one class for entire month and I was all you did so it was like really intensive three or four hours a day and I took a web job in like Photoshop class and absolutely love because it took the stuff that was cool programming. I enjoyed making Gregorian calendars and things like that but it being able to put it on the Internet and then instantly like have my mom was kind of next level and so I think that's from then on basically I've been hooked on the web so the next semester I took independent study in PHP and my sequel build a little bed and breakfast website and and then kind of fell into my first job and then fell into my second job small consultancies and stuff like that just cranking out websites and then I think from there ended up at Notre Dame and got to University of Notre Dame got to learn a lot of really good things in work around great team and Matt eventually who become kind of my co-founder at ordered list Steve Smith and and with the two of us hit it off. He was Kinda Front End. I was kind of back end and we both enjoyed our our parts and so I ended up leaving Notre Dame and joining him and then the rest of it you kind of mentioned where we went to build some stuff and eventually ended up at at hub so I think that's kind of where it started from me so it's basically like two thousand three two thousand four kind of got into some web stuff absolutely loved it and did nothing. I mean my entire twenty s were like way too much time with my sequel and that eventually into like ruby on rails and stuff like that was ordered list building ruby and ruby on rails yeah so we when and he went Steve and I were still at Notre Dame we built the content management system that we call conductor because conductor had an NDA and it was conducting inducting websites. We were very smart all the names we probably took all all the vowels out because that was when you know flicker and all those didn't have have bowel so that was probably it probably didn't have vowels either but basically we were like. We're going to build this in rails. It's going to be awesome and like I remember Notre. Dame was very against at the time against new technologies and so we kind of just did it. We paid for out of our departments funds instead of using like a general. It stuff like that and it was on rails and then when I joined ordered last I mean we were consultants basically but or list inc but what we did right away we knew long-term we wanted to be in products and so we started started harmony which was basically like we rebuilt conductor from the ground up as a way to make it faster for us to ship websites for clients basically and so that's kind of yeah so it was all all ruby on rails stuff so awesome will the next question I have for you is really kind of a two parter so first of all. I'd love to hear about box South Sports. What is that yeah so box out sports I just joined in January and what that is is it's basically we hope mostly college sports and now kind of delving into high school as well with their social media presence and so basically any kind of info graphic or game game update half and of Quarter player the game interesting stats quotes all the stuff that if you are on instagram lot you'll see it all over. ESPN bleacher report those kinds of things infographics huge on facebook and instagram sell the company started maybe five years ago and and it's again with Steve Smith and then with two other guys Raby lightfoot and Jeff Myers. Neither of them are programmers but the four of us are all in now and basically they. They started it. Maybe three or four years ago and I just joined and it's going really well. a lot of good saturation in College a lot of college sports use us for just updating on. Here's here's how all the Games are going for all their teams James Volleyball Men's and women's football soccer basketball baseball softball everything that you can kind of imagine we have different graphic packages packages for as really similar. I was talked to Steve. About how similar it is to harmony harmony was basically this like template and data's system where a developer would like like create this template and then that from that template we derive like a pretty form to show a contact person so they didn't have to worry about html and CSS and where things will go and just made it really easy for them to put it in and this infographics thing the exact same thing. It's basically like this template system where a developer primarily Japhet box out will create these templates and they have what what's what are the data inputs that we need and then when a sports information director her or someone who's athletics or a student worker whose at a game is doing an update they don't have to think about like what's our branding look like does this is this designed find well or any of that kind of stuff they have these stock templates they just fill in the data and then they get beautiful graphics to share just a a really simple way to like you know defined templates and end up with with Japex and PNG's and actually uses electron on the back end for some of the rendering and stuff like that which is kind of cool too.

Egypt on track to reduce food loss and waste by 50 per cent in five years: FAO
"This is Matt wells at you and us about one third of all food, which has grown in the Middle East and North Africa is lost or wasted. According to the UN food and Agriculture Organization FAO in Egypt that adds up to an estimated fifty kilograms of food per person per year. According to you and figures most of this food lost from the farm to the table rather than wasted at the consumer level that results in loss of nutrition, which is alarming for a country, which is facing already. High levels of malnutrition says the agency governments in the region have pledged to reduce food loss and waste by fifty percents by twenty twenty four and FAO along with the Italian government is training farmers and wholesalers to reduce food loss and ensure greater food security as a nice Houghton reports from Egypt downtown kale. The Bill is full market is high of activity hundreds of tomatoes accurately stacked in foot. Creates ahead of men assessing the process the seller bacon. Them to make a bit daft, plenty of tomatoes to go around after Egypt is a major producer of tomatoes. But for every one thousand kilograms of tomatoes produced industry did in Egypt five hundred and sixty grams is lost a wasted. That's more than half new production, huge amount of food that would otherwise be available for consumption. Engine rule. Two thirds of all food laws in ways happens during them food production and distribution stages. The resents behind his losses wrench from inefficient food production to poor technologies and infrastructure. Infamous major producer of grapes. Q? Good them any in Michelle. Yeah. Yes. Stella mussa. He's an expert on grape cotija at a fait. Would I be an shackling be good the Nala ally? Farmers fist many problems that result in grip losses. For example. The groups might develop problems that only appear at harvesting things such as tightly compressed clusters of grapes as a result of rotting moldy, and this color, grapes, or grapes with the wrong sugar, content or size are all causes of creep loss. That's why if you is helping to build to food processing units in northern Egypt in Bangalore and Suker Antigua dare it trends cooperative in grip handling processing in distribution practices as well. As order I control methods. Title. We tried to identify the weak spots in the grip food production chain that resulting these losses as fuck. Fuck the training scheme. Also has long-term goals has after the initial training. We need a recommendations that as many farmers as possible could exit the train. So what followed was a course in training. The trainers about twenty five agriculture engineers in the region were trained and the now continue to train other farmers in the region spreading the knowledge foreign light. Greg Raby took part in one of FAO's training courses, learner, talent amusement. Madonna lynton. Was. The forty three year hold grapegrower leans in the village of Tiba about one hundred kilometers northwest of Cairo's should be enter recently. He was struggling to make ends meet. But he says his learned a lot I learned to avoid overthrows -ation by using the right amount of risers. We avoided losses on the farm. I also learn about proper method of spring and recommended amount to use depending on the condition of the vine another thing I learned was how to kick rates properly and how to get the right grape sites. The sugar any plans to pass on this knowledge to other farmers in his community. I want to transfer the knowledge I've learned to others, for example, you might find educated farmer with the specific concerns, I can advise him. If I see him doing something wrong on his farm or Ciprian incorrectly at can guide him with what I know what I've learned. That food production may toads are not the only coast for food loss in there. Also economic factors explaining food loss such as price fluctuations. Mafuta runs the business that manages our cure waste. He buys to maters from syndrome to may to cooperate is setup by FAO. The market price for tomatoes is lower than the cost of harvesting them. Farmers won't harvest tomatoes. So they lose a large amount of produce. This has a significant impact on smallholder farmers who not only dominate Egypt's would production, but also accounts for last portion of the country's poor which is thirty five percents of the population of how. So we try to have farmers to use losses by setting price levels. We say if the market price of tomatoes falls below one Egyptian pound per kilo than tomatoes have to be dried. If the price is more than one pound day can sell them on the market. Another bonus is that when the price of a product is fixed to farmers end up producing good quality produce because they are sure that their production costs will be covered. And that they will not have any losses. We tell you. A few plans to build the syndrome to me to facility in Bongo soco in other facilities, specialized Indra in grapes is currently under construction into Nubia area. It's hoped that these two initiatives more farmers like Greg grow Raby can help reduce food loss in waste energy. And at the same time boost their livelihoods.
