"shanghai" Discussed on Mosaic of China
"Well thank you so much. Murray onto part two okay. Ten questions they start here. So i ask these questions to every guest. We will start with question one. What is your favorite china-related fact. The word shanghai beans up from the ocean shang means up and high means ocean in. I think many people use that name without ever stopping and thinking. why is it called shanghai. So this is one big river delta. It's just silt deposit over hundreds and thousands of years and we're about maybe a meter or less above sea level so literally. This is a city which hasn't just risen vertically in the last twenty years as we see the beautiful skyline of legit sway. it's a physical creation that has risen up from ocean. It's still being created if you've ever seen as maybe when you land at pudong airport and looked out at that coastline. There's mudflats that just stretch out into infinity and the water's very brown color at silt. Coming down the unsee river being deposited in the east china sea so shanghai is continuing to be created. Wow do you have a favorite word or phrase in chinese. If i were to choose a couple of words such should be part of the english language lee high because it's a word that's both positive and negative. You know somebody who is Is hanley high can be really strong And it can be resolved if it can be negative. You know his attitude tightly high. He's he's you know he's too strict. He's strong he's not flexible enough Where's personality But you know you can also describe someone who's leigh high's really good at something. He was really got great competency or skill. It can be very different meanings depending on the context the context duality of it is so rich. Which lee hire you. Do you think if you ask one of the people it works with me. They might have a negative. I like to think that. I'm both and neither that i'm just you know just me. Yeah the second thing talion tagliani. The literal context means disgusting. Oh disliked right. Yes but if a girl would say you talliin. They're saying it in a in a in a positive way almost flirtatious way No-one flirts with me. Murray to ensure that someone does. I'm sure that someone does. That's great thank you for that. What is your favorite destination within china. Pingyao pingyao guten. I think maybe others have said that. To credible i would recommend it to anybody. You know. it's a wall. Street is about six square. Kilometers rises up out of the agricultural plains of shansi province and it is a tremendous experience. He feels like you're stepping into a ming dynasty movie and within that wall city It's a protected unesco world heritage site. So there's really no development on the outside of the of the wall cities mostly just farmland of course is a few tourist things that have popped up but within the the wall city there really are no cars. You can rent a bicycle. You can bike around the city on the wall. There's lots of traditional hotels and restaurants and great food and great people And just wonderful experience. The photos ice off my friends letter that did show a mass of tourists said. That's the one downside right. I was lucky enough to go twenty years ago. If you left china what would you miss the most. And what would you miss. The least the most is the excitement of every day every day. Something is happening. I learned something. I'm challenged in some way. I also feel like it can contribute in some way. I just feel like it's where everything's happening. That's what i would miss the most what i would miss. The least is the fast pace. I don't know if that makes any sense. But when i do get out of the country and when i go to my comfort zone france or somewhere else to not have a fast pace and You know every so often. You need to kind of recharge batteries. I think it's obvious and The problem is when i'm there. I missed the fast pace after a couple of weeks. When i'm here after a few months i need a break from the fast pace so i'm never going to be completely in either. Thank you for saying that so well. Is there anything that still surprises you about life in china yes I can't tell you what the because it'll be tomorrow surprise but there's definitely things that surprised me but sometimes surprise me in special ways. I i give you a kind of unique example. I remember when i first came. Here i had the The opportunity to travel domestically and is like twenty seven years ago. And in those days you gotta boarding pass. You went to a small airport terminal and then you'd be bust out or you'd walk out to the aircraft on the tarmac in wasn't anything like it is now and Even though you had a reserve seat a scrum to get onto the flight and it was. I mean it was a rough scrum and You had your seat in theory Sometimes you had to remind people who got your seat that it was your seat and always always work out. And then you know the same thing on an escalator. Everybody would just push in. There's a lot of reasons for that. And it's not a criticism i remember. It was like about eight years ago. i was on an escalator. Going up to a second floor in my office building at the time and I looked up. And i noticed that everyone was standing to the right. Everybody without exception and it just made me realize everything. You thought you knew was different. Because people are progressing in society is changing so quickly and so dynamically and it's just the smallest of things but It's exciting to see it and it's exciting to be part of a. I kind of almost felt like i was the one that was kind of standing on the wrong side. So you perspective changes yes and when you see it as a stock image like you said then. It does hit home very good. What is your favorite place to go out to eat or drink or just hang out m on the bund. Oh go. And i hope it exists forever At least as long as i'm here. I almost feel like it's named after me because the m for murray it's not for me it's for michelle. Who owns the restaurant. But i love the restaurant. I love the location. I love the the cuisine night loved the branding. I love the feel of the place. I also love. We'll con- lou It's just a beautiful area. And for liu hulan lose single that whole area so i spend a lot of time with the little cafes and restaurants there when i have a chance to come back to the pusey side of shanghai. Yes i think that's where we first met in one of those cafes. They're right that's right. What is the best or worst purchase. You have made in china. I bought a one thousand nine hundred eighty s house on. We'll lou years ago you one of those people who got him Early enough. i made the brave decision to buy. You know the top of nineteen twenties house. A standalone house. The top part of that house in about two thousand five and lived in for seven years and had a wonderful experience. And then i sold it in the old adage buy low. Sell high definitely applies to real estate in shanghai. You are not winning any friends right now. At least you give me that coin. Yes yes you have your coin. Now the hardest question. What is your favorite which astika and it's a great question. Actually because i communicate more by stickers than by text so there's a series of we chat stickers which is called. Shell leo little leo. And it's actually you know. Couple of characters as a dot com. There's a cat. And i think there's a couple of other characters that occasionally make an appearance and i just think that the designs are brilliant and it just super fun and a little bit naughty. And.

Author Gordon Chang Describes His Robust Beliefs About Communist China
"Us a little. Bit of who. Gordon chang is and how you got the very robust beliefs that you have today said. I'm a writer. And i wrote a book the coming collapse in china in two thousand one in which i predicted the communist party would fail in ten years so as wrong about that The reason why i wrote that book was because lydia ni- were living in china We moved their august. Nineteen ninety-six because i went there to work for my primary client citibank. We were doing all sorts of deals and it was a very optimistic time. And i can remember when we moved to shanghai. Lydia got on the phone and said mom china's not communist anymore. And i agreed with her because i saw clients they would buzzed into shanghai. They would stay at the grand. Taio was just one of the most spectacular hotels in the world and they would say the same thing but as we lived in china As we traveled around talk to people work there We saw a very different country and that led us to believe that the regime was not stable. I think it still is unstable. It was able to get through largely because of the two thousand eight downturn and also because companies didn't hold china to its world trade organization promises which i thought they would so i've been wrong about timing but we're seeing a china right now. That is a dangerous now. A lot of people say that it's dangerous because it strong. I think it's dangerous because it's weak but fundamentally we have agreement on one point and that is that china poses and existential threat to the united states and to the international system.

"Mtpa. I think i'll have somebody yelling at me my monte le-mans families from antiga um which really does have some of the most gorgeous speeches ever But i would also say that i think jamaica truly does have some beautiful beaches to definitely perfect. Okay so have three more all right. So where do you think we can find some of the best accommodations. It depends on what you're looking for. I have a friend who went to becky son and had an amazing time going through different hostels and she's happy as a pagan slot. I don't like traveling in hostels. I need at least three star hotel. That has running walking redden water where i can lock up my valuables and i come back to when it's mine and for bed bugs. That's me it just it depends on what you're looking for your own. Yeah i agree with. I would agree with lauren on that. One over in china you were able to stand really nice hotels for you know. Were very inexpensive so depending on you know how how much you wanna spend is gonna make different fun. What's your accommodations are gonna look like but please know that sometimes you can splurge and get really wonderful accommodations. So we stayed at the j w in new delhi and when we checked in they asked for fifty dollars more would you like access to the club concierge and before i even open my mouth or by the said yes please and we had an amazing time. Anything you wanted they delivered. It was breakfast. Happy hour and like appetizers and we had an amazing time. And i wanna say that hotel was to sixty tonight for the j. W i've stayed at the ritz carlton in beijing. And i thought it was terrible. Hotel was stuffy and it was awful. And i honestly will probably never stay at a ritz carlton again. I've also you know tiny hiltons. That did what they needed to do. Yeah i stayed at a hotel and In thailand and it was like fifty dollars a night and it was an amazing hotel like with pool and it came with free breakfast really good breakfast so yeah just depend.

Which is where they have the moon bar and everything and that that hotel feels like four hundred dollars tonight and hotel. We stayed at was like eighty dollars a night and it was right next door to the best bar in the city so like we we were right there but didn't pay the expensive prices so definitely do your research you can.

"That had abed and a little mini fridge and The bathroom like the shower will like probably half this hour that you use when the us so that was a little bit of adjustment. But not the type of adjustment. Where i knew that. I would be able to aren't somewhere to get my hair done. I knew i wouldn't have to bring toilet paper. You know all those kinds of things. It was just down fighting gotcha and going back to shanghai. We'll say actually the story about lauren finding that like black hair shop. And telling you about it. That's like one of my favorite stories that you all have shared about your shanghai. Because i think it just speaks to like you said the fact that black people are everywhere and we got to figure it out you know so it was. I didn't find just one either. I found black care salons. So i found the one that i went to regularly then i want to braids and so i found the african salon. That specifically did locks in braids. And that's the one that i said too so i didn't find just one. I found multiple Even going back and visiting They're they're still in business on top of that. They're still in business. Which is a testament on to clearly. That the the the culture. That's there there are black people there that are living there. And that's one of the things. I just love the also seen zamalek jamaican spots. They're like food. That's one of the things that surprised me more than anything is you look at china new. Think about china and even some of our experiences in how people clearly did not have a lot of exposure to black people the way that they would look at us and the way that stare at us and the way i mean you would have thought that we were celebrities. They the way that they just tried to discretely. Even take your picture on subway. Just because you had brown skin you'd be like heaven clearly. Have you ever seen a black person before like day but when you really start to live in a city and understand also what. It's like to be an ex pat and find that ex pat community to find the pat apps because there are apps in every country that are designed for the people who are not from there to find. You know we want italian when you want that you know that the you know beef or beef. Patty know when you if you really wanting not. It's most likely in the country that you're in. You just have to do the extra work to find it with berry reversible. Thank god for her because she really prepared me for what i need it before. I got there. Because i think you were there months. I fair and i think it would have you wary march time. Yeah yes the three months. I had been there three months and not only just ivy like. I shared that with another one of our colleagues kanda before she came out like girl. This is a this is what it is you got some. We've i know you were tracks like this is what it is and i'm warning you now because there weren't that many black people are company is wonderful and they five hundred employees over to complete is project which is a lot but believe it or not as versus. We are as a company they sent people over who are subject matter experts in their field and at the end of the day. I'd say out of five hundred people. They're still were. Maybe only fifty of us that were black per se so and that's shades company that just even possibly people who volunteered at the end of the day. You're still away from your family. You are taking a risk or is it with your career by stepping away and being unseen. So that's truly by choice also to keep that in mind. That was a choice that we need that. We volunteered to take this assignment and to move to a foreign country so i do want to say that also well think what you just mentioned. There actually relates to my my next couple of questions. So you kind of alluded to this. But how were you able to find him build community while you were living abroad for me. It started truly with. Who i knew was already there so i had a had a friend who actually been there already for four months and i called her the moment that you know the call went around. They're looking for more volunteers to go. Who's interested and i told her. Hey look i raised my hand. She like. I'm just going to warn you. This is not glamorous. she said you're in a hard hat jeans mud all day. You know this is what it's gonna be. So i knew i made sure to do the research with the people that i knew who were there to know fully what i was walking into and then once i was there i tell people it was the adult college program. Busy is known for its college program. And i'm called it the adult college program because you lived you. We had roommates me on or you didn't depending on assignments or my assignment was four. A m ended up being for eight months. So i had a roommate. I had the master bedroom. We both had our own bedrooms bathrooms and we shared a kitchen and a living room. If you had a even longer assignment or very short assignment mail it by yourself and in my in my building alone there probably about one hundred fifty employees. What i appreciate is that our company would have events in the building or in the building hosted. So we'd have happy hour. We have game night. They had a great opportunity to catch a bus. That would take you to the grocery store so you wouldn't be only one probably going to the grocery store. There was probably about ten of us in the bus. That would go to the grocery store so through there. You have those conversations. When i first arrived even it was. It became a ritual. Let's take you to your first trip to the grocery store so that i can. At least you know. I'll show you where to where is how to get there even how to hail a cab back if needed. That's that was extremely helpful because that was my first even language lesson of how to get myself back to my apartment. My friend was like yoga. Why so she was telling me how to give a taxi driver directions which was super helpful on a night that i needed to get home alone but you know even in the grocery store. She showed me okay. The brands are there. When you're when you're going to afford grocery store. I'm sure it's one thing and i'm sure in europe because i've been to. I've been a europe. You can easily identify what no in china things have very similar colors in packaging. But everything's of course in a different language almost so she was like okay. You get this one. You should get this because you still have to wash clothes while we had an pair or a a an obama. Actually things what is called their Which is made. We still did our own laundry. She do our dishes and she would clean our entire. Keep our trash out in our sheets in everything we still had to do our actual laundry and so you still the food and everything you know. You still needed to get all that so. She took us to the grocery store and help us get back. And i think. I think when you got there ivy. Did i show you how. To get there to your. You did and so again. Just birth to my advantage. There's so many people over there. Before you know i got here and so lauren like plug me right in. Like here's where you go for. Ex- here's where you go. I remember her taking the. I can't remember the name born. I showed up over in china without a coat of off any newer. Like so i we went. I can't remember the name of the store but we went. And.

How did you prepare. And what kind of adjustments did you have to make. When you're living in shanghai so i'll go. I guess i because i knew when i got my assignment that i was going to be there for a while. My initial simon assignment was for seven months. And so for me. I had been wanting to go to shanghai and actually my first. International trip was with disney for recruiting trip to beijing and shanghai. So that for me. It was almost like coming home. 'cause i had spent some time in in china before but i had reached out to peers. Who are already over there. I definitely researched the weather. I researched where we were going to be. Living and one of the fabulous things about our company is that they will very insistent that any building that we were housed in. Have a doorman had a twenty four hour doormen so compared to perhaps some other countries or a company's excuse me We were always set up for success. I feel like in a safety mindset. i researched. What american brands. I get but out through many people telling me certain things like feminine products are not the same there so bring your own medications bring any particular like cough medicine or anything that you're very Preferred to make sure you bring knows. I was familiar with food items such that that i would be encountering over there but i think for me more than anything was just what was i. What could i not live without hair care products being a black woman. Of course i knew that trying to find like jamaican black. Castor oil may not be something that you can find over there Hair vitamins you know. I think i think the most the majority of the weight in my bag was literally from lotion and shampoo and conditioner and detangling acting so well. Because i also knew shipping over there was insane and while they have towel and basically the equivalent amazon lake. I can't guarantee that. I'm going to be able to find those products. I also did research Black hair salons too. So that was. That was interesting. But i try to do as much much researchers i could you know what i wasn't going to have access to and and what i would so I will say had got an allowance. Drift three bags to take at each bag was ten pounds over so i paid the luggage died. Twenty bucks to to turn the the his head the other way and just put heavy bags and take them. I will say that my experiences very send me alerts wine. I knew that i always wanted to happen. International assignment i didn't necessarily have a country picton mine and china's full transparency. China probably wouldn't have been at the top of the list thinking about you know on the international assignments spike. I wanted something. A little more sexy. You know but That that's just not knowing a lot about China but when i when the companies were building Park over there. I know that would be an amazing life changing career changing opportunity. And when i went over there there are already people that have been over there. Like lauren both already over there. There were tons of people that were already over there so they were able to share their being than prepared me for what i need is to bring and it was a little bit different like we had to bring I probably have one bag for of.

"Now they've all but disappeared john o. J. local news reports say newsstands have outlived their use. Shanghai tongzhou here over the last decade newspaper circulation in china dropped by more than a third to survive some owners turned to selling drinks and snacks one even transformed his stand into a veggie stall one local. Tv station reported that street stalls were becoming an eyesore and three years ago. Shanghai shut most of the stalls including the newsstand. Run by jacky wu. It's hamat high two hours. The government decided to close them so we had to go along with it. There was a bit of pushback though. Says another newsstand owner the to talk nicer old. People were sad and crying when our booth was. That's why took over my parents. Business and kept selling newspapers. Many of my customers are in their eighties and nineties. Her current newsstand has no government support. Which makes things hard really. It's just a table tucked away in an alleyway. She from bought a pick up the newspapers myself. And i can't return on sold ones like before. I have to shoulder the losses now so it's a much tougher business model. Her longtime customers are grateful. She's still here. Golden does says he needs to read at least two newspapers a day. I don't feel well if i don't read newspapers but then another customer heard. We were an american news outlet. He told me be careful and the mood changed could what they've said be misinterpreted as criticizing the shanghai government seal would you. They'll be negative consequences if the story is published in the us. Will it cause me problems. She had these big fear. Is that by speaking to us. Her new stand could be shut down a second time in shanghai. I'm jennifer pack for marketplace. Jenny l. said other day in that round of interviews. She did about those child. Tax credit advance payments hitting people's checking accounts. Yellen said she is gonna get. Harriet tubman on the twenty dollar bill. Just as soon as she can. Tubman would be the first black american the first woman and thus break a multi century run of dead white guys on our money. That history is ellen feingold job. She's the curator of the national numismatic collection at the smithsonian's national museum of american history that bank notes that we use today were first designed in the nineteen twenties and the people who were doing those designs. They didn't think about the role that women play national history. They had a really fixed idea about a handful of male political figures people that were seen as founding father figures and wanted to use money as an opportunity to honor them and while those figures People like george. Washington certainly are an important part of our national history. Our money does not reflect the way in which women have contributed to the building of our nation. The money is a really powerful way to send a message. Something that through. Everybody's hands both in this country and our money goes all around the world so who we put on. Our money says a lot about who we are and how we see our national history. I would love to see. Our banknotes communicate a richer picture of american life and that means including more diverse body of people in terms of age and background but that also means including i think a wider variety of obscene a wide variety of contexts. I'm a big fan of nature designs which are popular around the world. And again i would love to see. Depictions of of our hopes for the future and kids are often part of that so perhaps children hiking in a national park. I think scenes that help us think about our world moving forward while honoring the people who have helped create and sustain our nation. Today would make the richest most powerful scene. Ellen's interview comes to us from million brazilian. That's podcast we do for kids and their families answering all those questions. Kids have about money.

Jennifer pack did back in april about one of the few remaining and affordable transportation options for poor chinese way out in the countryside. Slow trains serve called. It turns out that story was picked up. By one of china's government run newspapers translated into chinese and published so of course jennifer went looking for a copy this morning. My friend Sent me a picture. She saw a chinese translation of article in a newspaper called the global times but finding a newspaper in shanghai. These days is not an easy task. our news isn't charles jong though says he has managed to find a newspaper stand and on my way to meet him now. I tell the taxi driver my mission.

We'll talk about you and we'll get the other push whatever content you're interested in each video user has his or her own style. And you can comment it's entertaining. He says unlike the government run media the global times translated our story into chinese about how the government trains help the poor but it cut out mentions of inflation or the high cost of living. She want to. I don't read domestic china's news because all government run news in china is fake taxi. Driver didn't give his name out of fear. 'cause you're foreign media. It's hard to say what would happen. I get out of the cab and meet up with her assistant charles and ask him. How many places did you go to before you found a newspaper. I talked to seven places and went to six kiosks. So i asked the man at the newsstand. Charlestown how's business pool new while you want to do an interview. You need approval from my leader. This is not what he told charles. Before i arrived with the microphone but we follow the protocol and apply for permission from his leader or parent company. China post the newsstand. Man though told charles that the story of disappearing newsstands is a sensitive one for his bosses. The don't want to make this story too. Big newsstands were set up by the shanghai government back in the late.

"Is also feeling the pain. Massive floods are affecting millions of people the world Rebecca cancers in Shanghai and says the worst hit areas are in the city of Zhengzhou and surrounding a non province in central China. Throughout the province. There's about 10 cities and urban and rural areas that have been affected, But because Zhengzhou is a city about 10 million, it's getting a lot of attention. And there's been a lot of footage on social media about about the situation in Yangzhou, but actually it's been around the region. So about 100,000 people had to be relocated because of the flood. And this has been going on for several days now since Saturday, So there's some really dramatic scenes showing up on social media. What have you been saying? One video that I got sent from someone? I know who's living there showed just how scary this kind of flooding can be. Yeah, yeah. Are you admire? Come on. I? Yeah, I don't know the woman filming this video. She's live streaming and she's pointing it at the street, which is just covered in water, and it looks like a river And she's saying Oh my gosh, there's a father and his child that are just swept away swept right down the street by by the floodwaters, so she's just yelling at them. Please get to hold on to something, but there's nothing that they can hold onto. And the water is about the level of the hood of the cars on the side of the street. But the video that I've been seeing all over the Internet is this one, which was shot in one of Guangzhou's subway cars on Tuesday night, are you Uh, here, you know, Jamal, what's going on there? Rebecca? What's happening is you're seeing the inside of a subway car. Everybody inside the subway car is sort of grabbing onto the strap hangers and the water is all the way up to their chest almost up to their shoulders. It's dark in the subway car, and it's just very scary because you can imagine they were there for several hours before they were able to be evacuated out and 12 people died. That's
Tesla Fighting Back in China
"Rob our here and today. We're going to be discussing tesla in china. Tesla is pushing back on some of the brake failure reports that we've talked quite a bit about we'll talk about the most recent development there. Then what kind of continued the tour around the world. We've got some news on. Gigabyte wins news in canada and the us as well and what was it out with an update on batteries. I will take a quick look at the stock tesla today giving up the gains that it had seen earlier this week finishing down two point three percent on the day to six hundred and fifty three dollars. Thirty eight cents a few dollars below the closing price last friday. The s&p and dow were up. But the nasdaq did finish down. Do tons of a percent okay. Let's start off with that news out of china just as some back story of course over the last couple of months. We've been talking about reports of brake failures. In china tesla china has obviously pushed back on that claiming that there were no brake failures. These were just user errors. Detention around that peaked during the shanghai autoshow couple months back with a woman protesting claiming failures but other people have also made similar claims since then we have seen tesla take action so they've hired more people in communications. They've asked for and actually received some apologies from media and influencers that either reported on the stories accurately or in the case of one influence are actually just made up story for more attention. Shocker but those actions do seem to be helping as best. I can tell externally while today. We've got the latest chapter in that. Saga kelvin. young on twitter is reporting that tesla china is suing one of the owners that made claims of brake failures that owner shared details of the situation and away bow post which in translation reads quote. Hello everyone i am. The owner of wenzel tesla out of control. I received tussles indictment the day before yesterday. Now i will release the previous. Fdr tests report of wenzel automotive engineering society. I hope you kind people can help me analyze it. Thank you and quote. Etr test results there that just means event data recorder test results so basically just a third party analysis of what happened during the supposed- brake failure situation lots of replies on this thread one of the first ones reads quote. Don't you understand this result. Means that number one break his okay number two you stepped on the accelerator and quote.
Model Y to EU Analysis
"Everybody robin our here. Happy friday today is the last day before the scheduled. Fasd beta release. So we're going to be looking out for videos for that overnight. That should be the big news this weekend. But in the meantime we do have some other pretty big news to discuss. The monowai has opened up for configuration in europe will spend some time analyzing that decision. And how that also coincides with tussles decision to release the standard range model. Why and china. Then we also have price increases again from tussle to discuss some news on tesla energy and a couple other items as well first. We'll take a quick look at the stock tesla today closing out the week with a positive day. Finishing up zero point six percent on the day but still underperforming the nasdaq which was up about one percent on the debt. We've now had five full trading days since tesla announced their q to delivery and production numbers. Tesla's sense then is down about three percent versus the nasdaq up about one percent. Aren't so the big news for today. Is that the rumor that we had discussed yesterday. That the model why would open up for configuration. And europe has indeed come to fruition. It looks like many many countries throughout europe. Now able to actually confirm their orders or place new orders for the mentawai. Deliveries are scheduled for q three and it looks like new orders could be as well right now. The german design studio for the long range. Monowai says september for new order. That's on the long range version. The performance actually now says beginning of twenty twenty two as expected all signs point to these being exported vehicles from giga shanghai. The reason we can see that as the interior trim on the model. Why does show the wraparound would. So it's going all the way to the door panel which is not the case for the fremont made model. Why as of yet. Plenty of reasons to rule out gigot berlin so looks like these are coming from shanghai which makes sense does has been exporting the model three from shanghai as well and then even though we did have the addition of the standard range monowai to china and hong kong no standard range availability and europe as of this time in terms of pricing. And of course varies by country. That's typical for tesla. If we look at germany as an example the base price for the long ranges listed at fifty six thousand. Nine hundred. Ninety euros then you add a nine hundred eighty dollars handling fee on top of that that brings the price up to nearly fifty thousand euros that includes value added tax and a twenty five hundred euro environmental bonus
Tesla Stock Is Dropping After Solid China Deliveries
"Rob our here for a relatively quiet. Newsday for tesla so today. We're going to take a look at a new post by green. The only sharing out a visualization of how tussles looking at depth with vision only. Then we've also got a couple of updates out of china some news on the boring company and an update to evade tax credits in new jersey. We'll start off. You're spending a minute. On the stock tesla. Today again underperforming finishing down about two and a quarter percentage points to six hundred and forty four dollars. Sixty five cents that compared to the nasdaq essentially flat on the day it was however a tougher day for automakers in general ford. Gm sta lantis off finishing down between one two percent and ev makers in particular having a rough go of it neo on the day finishing down eight and a half percent expanding down about six percent. Le- auto down about four and a half percent lucid technically cc. iv down. Three percent armada down six percent et cetera so relative to other ev stocks. Tesla actually doing pretty well today. There was anything specific to tesla that caused it to moved out as for other news. Most of what. I've been seeing over. The last couple of days is reports on individual countries sales in june. I think most listeners will know that attention. Just not really report on that outside of china which we actually. We'll talk about in a second but this tends to happen every quarter the first month of a quarter bears her out saying oh look at how deliveries dropped month over month in ex european country and then in the final quarter bowls out saying look. Model three best selling car in this country in june. Because of how tesla handles their logistics and delivering in batches neither of those pieces of information and up really being all that valuable with some select exceptions. China is always an exception there for a couple of reasons number one because of giga shanghai. Those numbers whether delivery or production numbers out of china. Give us more insight into how tesla's progressing at giga shanghai and then second the market is buried keyed in on tesla in china right now trying to assess the situation assess if there are any demand problems which i don't anticipate to be a long-term risk but market participants met so. That's why i'm not spending much time on those other countries. It'll be a lot more interesting when we do. Gigabyte lynn up and running then. Those monthly numbers might start to have a little bit more value like they do for china
Firmly in Control, China's Communist Party Marks Centenary
"It is one hundred years today since the chinese communist party. The ep came into being. It was created as a result of ironically western influences from the likes of marxist intellectuals so what does today's ccp sand for and how does it influence. Play out in modern day china. Well it's tell us more. I'm joined by the ceo of china dialogue isabel hilton and sophia. Yan telegraphs correspondent in beijing to regular voices on monocle. Twenty four welcome back. Good morning tea both. Good morning isabel. If i could begin with you just explain to us how the communist party came about. Well the the first meeting of the communist party the one. We're celebrating although mao. Actually when he was asked couldn't quite remember the date so this date is slightly arbitrary It it was twelve people Twelve chinese delegates one soviet and one common tern representative who met in the french concession in shanghai for a few days until the shanghai till the french secret police took an interest. They then reconvened on a boat on a nearby lake and that technically was the founding meeting the ideas themselves had been swirling around pretty much since the fall of the qing dynasty which was not the ching dynasty that the the last imperial dynasty china Phalle as a result of quite another revolution which which the communists had nothing to do with But the the swirl of ideas. Since i guess about eighteen sixty in china about how china needed to reform amongst the many threads that were that was Was marxism along with ideas about democracy science. All kinds of different discussions were going on in china and this one Emerge with soviet assistance into the communist party.
CNN. Tesla Sales Rise Despite Problems With Chips and China . 34 Mins Ago
"Everybody power here and stay. We have quite a full slate to go through on the final day of tesla's second quarter. I cannot believe we are already heading into q. Three time flies today. We're talking about testing closing out. The quarter emptying showrooms today and delivering the first long range model s.'s. so we've seen the plaid deliveries. We've now got long range model hostelries as well i we've also got enormous chiming in a sort of last comments before q. To closes out news from hong kong. That's pretty interesting. An update on possible. Ev us federal tax credits. Some news on tussle energy Ruling on in ohio. On volkswagen and some news from canada on electric vehicles. So we'll start off with the stock. You're today tesla. Finishing down fifteen hundreds of a percent sixteen hundred zero percent to you. Six hundred seventy nine dollars seventy cents compared to the nasdaq pretty much right in line with where tesla was relatively quiet day. The nasdaq finishing down around that level. As well so as i said i long range deliveries here for the new model s. A great to see those get out. We had seen tesla stockpiling some vehicles at fremont on. It seems like some of those are finally now being delivered here on the final days of the quarter. Uh so congratulations to the new long range model s. owners and i've definitely heard some other reports of people getting plaid deliveries scheduled even for tonight. So tesla as usual going right up until the wire For the the quarter so we went through deliveries And production forecasts yesterday. I just wanted to provide a couple of updates on that. So we've been kind of tracking the sessile shanghai accounts As we've gone through the historical information shared by this account at has at times been relatively accurate. So that's why i've been sharing it. We're kind of following it throughout the quarter anyway. A few days ago this account had reported that key to sales were locked down sixteen percent. Well apparently they're not locked because now we've got a second update here today saying you it's s. q. On sales here. But the referring to sales in china being down eleven percent only and of course that's just domestic deliveries tesla has grown exports in jinan q. to So total production. In china in shanghai is going to be up but domestic deliveries may be down this account saying down eleven percent
Tesla Q2 Production and Delivery Forecast
"We're here today. We're going to go through a second quarter delivery and production forecasts ahead of quarter end which ends tomorrow and then we should get tussles numbers sometime on friday as my expectation may slip into saturday but based on the last few quarters think that'll happen probably friday morning So obviously be back to report on that but today was going to go through what i expect my actual forecast for this quarter based on the information that we have so far. We also have a little bit of other news. So we'll hit that up after the end of the forecast we'll start off here with tesla's stock out before we get into that if you are an audio only listener This is spreadsheet intensive so up at the link down to the video in the show notes. I would recommend that for this right so tussle stock today Fading off a little bit to finish down one point one percent to six hundred eighty dollars. Seventy six cents. That compared to the nasdaq which was slightly positive on the day finishing up about two tenths of a percent so before we get into deliveries. Let's look at what wall street is currently expecting else. Like that is about one hundred ninety eight thousand three hundred vehicles to be delivered in q two. This is as of june twenty fifth from an investor's dot com article. Uh so that's the best source. I have right now for a factset consensus before we you. My actual spreadsheet though just a reminder attended focus mostly on production rather than deliveries. These cars are gonna get delivered eventually so to me production as key. Not how many of those vehicles that tesla produce they're actually able to deliver So we can send most of the time talking about production but i will talk about deliveries as well. So let me flip over to excel here and we can just orient people with how this she set up by now. Most people are familiar about. We basically have periods of time here in the rose. Different sections of Production here in the columns so total fremont shanghai and then we have it split out by sort of rates so weekly rates daily rates and then some breakdowns over here of just individual factories and their weekly rates

"Here's the thing with ghost adventures. I don't believe them no. I don't either. I believe in a ton of different paranormal investigators lake lorraine warren i one hundred percent believe in her. Yes me too. And there's another ghost one goes. Tv show that it goes now terms. Yes them i believe them to are the most part i believe them. Same ghost adventurers. They're stupid here's my thing. I feel like ghost. Adventures is literally just made for entertainment whereas ghost hunters. I feel like they genuinely interested in ghosts. And what's going on and the actual activity and it's i don't wanna say scientific but it's more data driven and like methods and it's not. It's just them hunting for it. It's not for entertainment. Yes and i think also they come from and from the side of will. We're literally coming to disprove that. This exactly makes it somehow a little more believable when something actually does happen because they themselves were trying to not believe it to begin with exactly. Sal also have you seen the ghost adventures to their live show. No and didn't even know they had one thing at alive. Like i don't know i don't know if it was like a marathon or something. They were on air for a really long time and it was alive thing. Oh gosh i remember. When those were super popular is so bad. They had a jewish priest on that they were talking about the deb box. Oh yeah at this one point in time. They talked about a few other things but at this one time they were talking about it and they had a jewish priest come on and he the jewish priest was like not answering away at sack wanted him to do that was so funny oh but anyways so that is the shanghai tunnels. Apparently there's ghosts galore down there. They'll probably had to. You'll probably get wet. It's probably cold and just stay away from the red eye one. Yeah no kidding. Well from experience. I can tell you that the tunnels are dark and they are damp and it is cold but how much of that is just you know. Actual atmosphere versus ghosts right. The that's my question. I don't now on the tour. I went on like we had little We had these little monitors that would show you like the like right here. There's more of a magnetic field so it's likely that there's a ghost. There were certain places. I'll admit like we went through multiple hotels and all these different buildings and there were certain places that had high energy like all of the meters. On of the people on the tour would be going off some of it. I'm just like that's gotta be wiring. Modern wiring als causing it in some places by elevators. It was definitely you know you gotta spooky kind of vibe and yeah but again how much of that is you went into it wanting and experience and how much of it is actually an a real experience. I've learned to trust your vibes pretty accurate. Usually you're usually very accurate. So i mean if. You're getting a spooky vibe i would be like yeah we j- it. It's time to go. A red is coming. So last thing i'm gonna say in all of my research. I found that they have this haunted pub tour. And i'm like eac- once once we can go to pubs again like girl i'm in i'm in doping ran. Were and it's going to happen and we'll take pictures pitchers and we'll bring our own equipment. We'll have all the evidence or disprove exactly but yes like group exactly who. I'm so excited me.

I imagine a ghost attack. What happened on the bathroom. You just getting developed a die. Exactly i mean it's happened in the movies. There's no way to combat it. You know you're in one of your most vulnerable states besides sleeping. I like how much you've thought this through. Yeah i think about these things mike guys. Why my weird. You're not. oh man. Well that's our girl. Let's move on to a shanghaied crew of jennifer joe. What all so starting at the tunnels nearest the water. Every year on the anniversary of their drowning at sea this shanghaied crew rush back as a group looking for responsible. People hoping to just get justice of some sort. Okay okay now.

Yeah you would think that. But again i wasn't there i don't know. Yeah i digress. I digress so anyways a lot of different witnesses have seen them in heard them and a few have actually been touched by their cold wet hands. No i don't like that. Nope nope that's a description. That's a real description prescription.

"Because i've taken the underground portland tours like haunted tours. And i didn't know the shanghai tunnels maybe maybe i'll recognize it as we get into the story. I'm sure you will because these are the. I'm skipping ahead. A little bit but the shanghai tunnels are the tunnels underneath portland. We're like i. i think you have. Maybe on the ghost tour anyways. So the main reason why portland got this moniker of forbidden city of the west is because they had underground tunnels and they were. I mean they got the nickname shanghai tunnels which at the time. I don't think they were called that but over time. Yeah okay so what this is is like a series of bars and hotel. Basements that linked to each other and the willamette river dogs by like this big intricate system of tunnels under the city. So these tunnels were mostly used for like legitimate practices. Such as keeping ships supplies out of the rain and away from the heavy traffic above and also used For more. I dunno darker reasons. Okay like what. So you know the term shanghai right yes for those of you who don't it refers to the capture and sale of able bodied men to ship captains in need of extra crew. So like they would just pick up drunkards on the street or they would drug or whatever and they would take him to a ship and they'd be sold to slavery basically which is just crazy to me. Yeah that's terrifying. Honestly you yes like. They have to work until may made another dog and got off then. Like you're at a different place right but i feel so disorienting i would. Oh my god. That's that scares me but fun fact about shanghai. I'm pretty sure. I learned about this in parts of the caribbean. But i can't like.

"They're wearing a mask one of the few restaurants that's open in my neighborhood. Government workers stopped by to tell staff that any workers who've traveled outside of Shanghai need to isolate themselves before returning to work. Make sure you take the highest safety precautions and disinfect. They tell the cashier at the local market. Things seem more normal turns out. Everyone's still needs to eat. More vendors are returning a sign outside. The market says face masks are required to enter but masks are not so easy to come by. Online sellers are either sold out or still on holiday. Last week people lined up for hours at local pharmacies stopped by this pharmacy. There's a box of masks but you need a slip of paper from the local neighborhood committee to purchase any there's also a limit only five per customer and if you not from Shanghai. You're out of luck. no-one without Shanghai Shanghai residents papers can buy masks so I dropped by my neighborhood committee office to see if they can help me live. Viewing the man there tells me these masks are available. Only for Shanghai residents sorry. He says we'll call you if anything changes for people in the medical profession. The shortage can be a dangerous risk and not just for those serving outbreak patients. Louise Roy works for a private maternity clinic and Shanghai. It's limited everywhere. It's limited from what can be manufactured produced sold supplied.

It's kind of like you have to read English during the lies with the situation changing by the day. Speculation is hard to avoid last week. There were rumors that Shanghai was going into lockdown.

Relevant policies will be made after fully assessing the situation day by day he said for the world. Rebecca Kanter Shanghai in high as scientists raised to get ahead of this new corona virus in China and answer key questions agencies like the World Health Organization warned of another problem when you deal with epidemic. We often have an epidemic of information and this is what we call introduce Dr Sylvia Brianna WHM UHF Director for Global Infectious Hazard Preparedness. She says an Info Democ. Is this sort of information. Overload amplified these days with social media sifting sifting fact from Fiction Truth for myth. It is a challenge the. Who is now working with. Companies like Google to that out reliable sources. We've also also linked to some good ones and responded to some of your questions about this new virus on our website. That's the world dot. Org The Chinese stock market got whacked. Yesterday it was the Shanghai markets worst single day in the past five years nearly half a trillion dollars gone wiped off the books of Chinese companies. It it appears investors were spooked by the worsening corona virus outbreak. The Shanghai Stock Exchange had already been on a hiatus for the Chinese New Year celebrations. David David dollar has been following the action in China. He's a senior fellow at the China Center at the Brookings Institution a prior to this corona virus. Beijing's big worry was the possibility a of a black swan event where the dipping economy starts to see. Workers laid off from their urban factory jobs. They can't pay the mortgage and then their social unrest in the streets of China Anna. Do you see the corona virus as a black swan event deathly. It's a black swan event. It's going to have a serious effect on the Chinese economy. Certainly in the first quarter of twenty twenty twenty and into the second quarter we don't know yet how serious it is and they seem to be. Taking some pretty firm measures I think people will be accepting of economic weakness if the government can really get control of this virus. That's the main thing on people's minds right now so far. What has been the net effect of this outbreak on global supply chains? I would say that the initial effect is small simply because it hit the major vacation time in China so many factories factories closed for a whole month around Chinese New Year. Major manufacturers like our big brands have production in China. They've factored that into their supply chain. This happens every year and key question is to those factories come back online in two to three weeks from now. I think it's it's hard to say right now. All right I mean apple as well as Tesla have decided to reduce manufacturing in China. So how bad do things have to get companies. The completely distance themselves from China. I think that's almost impossible that that kind of talk is a little bit silly to be honest on why is on. I don't I don't mean you I mean you hear this talk in Washington because China produces twenty five percent of all the manufacturing value added in the world so it's not likely that big. US firms European firms are going to separate themselves from that. That would just be extraordinarily disruptive. You might see certain value chain. Start to move out of China. We still import a lot of clothing and textiles from China for example footwear. A lot of. That's already been moving toward Vietnam. Indonesia Bangladesh's countries have lower wages than China so this kind of virus the separate dynamic. That'll accelerate the shift to some of those value chains. But I think when the dust settles couple years from now China still going to be producing about twenty five percent of world world manufacturing value added. There's a big oil factor here as well China's the world's largest oil importer and according to reports the Chinese oil demands have dropped twenty percent percent since the virus and the lockdown. How does that impact the economies of Oil Exporting Countries? Right so great question. You know. People are not certainly not flying around and they've cut way back on driving for example. So you're right you gotTA diminish energy demand they import a lot from Saudi Arabia from someone main Oil and gas producers around the world part of this U. S. China trade deal we just reached is the US was supposed to sell China. Fifty billion of energy. She in the next two years hard to see how that's going to happen because China is GonNa be cutting back and it's already got three existing contracts with a lot of other producer so that that's definitely going to affect the oil market. You see already very sharp drop in the price of oil globally. So David we go back to SARS was deadly But did not match the severity of this corona virus reminded though what the economic hit was on China From SARS and on the rest of the globe at that point China was very much an export dependent economy so you saw a hit to their exports lot of factories close. People were scared to travel around. But then when and the virus was contained you saw those factories bounce back they were literally running triple shifts and China made up those exports so if you look at the whole year two thousand and three data you don't really notice anything I mean. They grew at about ten percent for the whole year. I think it's different now. I the seems seems more contagious spreading faster than SARS. And then as I mentioned it's really hit a lot of Chinese consumption. It'll be harder for the Chinese economy to bounce back this time. David dollar with the China Center the Brookings Institution speaking with us from Washington. Thank you very much. Yeah great talking to you ever heard of the Aurora chasers. Now it's not a band although that would make a great ben and it's a group of stargazers in night sky enthusiasts who take pictures of Aurora Borealis or the northern lights and now thanks to the chasers a new form of the northern lights has been found. Here's the World Sarah Auburn Boom. You can't really see it with the naked eye but when you look through your camera it's a different story streaks of neon green across the sky. Aurora's usually come in. ARCS is or bands that look like ribbons or huge colored columns of light but this new Aurora is different. It looks like waves so they are a a sandy beach dunes on a sandy beach. That's University of Helsinki physicist. Meena Pam Roth speaking to the CBC Palmroth discovered the new Aurora with the help of the Aurora chasers. They're finished facebook group dedicated to finding taking pictures of the northern lights. They're you're kind of like birdwatchers but for celestial phenomena years ago like maybe five years ago I got the very polite email from the the chasers in Finland saying that could professor. Can you join our facebook group to explain. The physics of the Aurora Palmer found herself answering the same kinds of questions over and over so she decided to write a book that way people could look up the answers instead of asking her all the time but when the book was done one of the chasers through sent her a photo and said he didn't say where this one is from. I actually kind of had the shivers as you were saying in English because I do think that I hadn't seen anything like that before and I was thinking immediately that this must be something new it turns out she was right Auroras happen. When gashes particles from the Earth's atmosphere collide with charged particles released from the sun? Palmer thinks this new form is caused by a wave of gravity. That's rarely been seen before in this part of the sky or maybe it happens all the time and we've just dismissed it. I actually think also one of them reasons here Why this was found now is is the improving of digital cameras spittal cameras and facebook groups new technology shedding light on the night sky check out the new Aurora our instagram page at PRI?.
