"I want to kind of close out my discussion of the Russian writer Michael Zhou shanko by briefly outlining the plots of a couple of his short stories. These are two of my favorites. They're both highly amusing. Well, in the first one, which has an ideological component, a man who is a kind of minor Soviet official comes home and tells his wife that the Russian government, the Soviet government, is starting a new literacy program. And because he's a government official, he goes, I've got to implement this literacy program in my own home, and you, my wife, are illiterate. You've never learned to read or write. So you've got to start learning. And his wife goes, don't talk such nonsense I've gone 55 years without learning to read or write what's the point of me starting now, so here you see zosh and go contrasting this sort of Soviet desire to impose progress throughout the countryside with ordinary peasants who grow crops and live their lives and raise their kids. And so the wife is like, I've never had the need for this before. So she tells her husband, listen, you can read and write. That's enough for the whole family. You do your job, leave me to do mine. And so as the plot proceeds, the woman never learns to read or write, but about 6 months after her husband approached her with this idea, she notices that a letter arrives outside their outside their farm. A letter for them. The letter is addressed to her husband. And so normally she doesn't bother, but I mean they never get letters. These are farm people after all, and her husband's business is transacted at work. So she takes this letter and she's sort of kind of looks at it. But of course, she can't read it. And so she doesn't know what to do, and she puts the letter to the side, her husband is actually away on business. And over time, Merc curiosity gets the better of her. She's like, who wrote this letter? And she begins to look at the letter really closely, and she even starts sniffing it, and she notices a very tiny aroma of perfume. Perfume.

"I decided to do a second Zhou shanko story today. And this one is called the bathhouse. Now xol shanko has three or four bathhouse stories. And in fact, the title of his collection, at least in the University of Michigan edition that I have is called scenes from the bathhouse and other stories of communist Russia. But this is just a very introductory kind of bathhouse story. It's almost like Zhou shanko is kind of getting a little wet before he really gets into his bathhouse narratives. And he goes, hey, citizens, they have some excellent bath houses in America. Now he's not talking about the gay bathhouses. He's talking about places public bats. By the way, a very ancient practice that goes back to the Roman bats where citizens go to a public bath and they. Kind of wash themselves and they sort of disrobe and sometimes they sit around talking and then they essentially pay and collect their clothes and go home. He goes, well, we have bath houses too, but not as good. And then he says, in our bath houses, there's a problem with the tickets. And he goes, that's because when you show up to the bathhouse, they give you a ticket, but he says, but where is the naked man gonna put tickets? He goes, there's no place to put tickets, no pockets. So anyway, he nevertheless, he takes his ticket and he kind of keeps it in his hand and he walks in. And he goes up now looking around for a bucket. So he wants to have a wash, but there's no bucket. Now in these days there are no showers, so you're not gonna be able to just stand under a shower. You have to actually pour water over yourself. And frankly, this is kind of how I grew up that we didn't have showers.

"We're not trying to bring the tsarist regime back without counter revolutionaries. There's no reason to arrest us. But we're going to, because on your side, we're going to claim a certain independence of outlook. Russia has always valued its writers, so kind of leave us alone and let us do our thing, our business is literature and not government. So my point is that fellow traveling here is a ruse. And others are claiming to be fellow travelers so they can actually do that work in peace. Zhou schenkel is not funny in the obvious sense that he's telling jokes. He creates very funny situations and you have to it's funniest to the people who live under those situations because they see right away that this guy is like on target. But even if you don't live in those situations, as long as you have some familiarity with the sort of bureaucratic heavy handedness of socialism, you can see that this guy is, as they say, circling right over the target. He managed to stay for most of his life outside the reach of Russian authorities. He dealt with the ordinary life of Russian citizens. So his characters tend to be, this guy's a town official. That guy's a clerk. This guy, you know, a peasant. And but very often it's the ordinary citizen, but dealing with some aspect of socialism, like the Soviet hospital, or the Soviet literacy program. And as we'll see, these stories are very enjoyable for the way that this guy treats them. He uses a kind of homespun language and there's a contrast between the bureaucratic prose of the Russian sort of commissariat. Socialist language, if you will, which is highly technical bombastic and the proletariat. And what he does is he has a contrast between that quote official language and the language that ordinary people speak. So he will have like little chuckles and snorts and guffaws, all written into the speech itself. And so I think the next few days with soshenko are going to be really fun toward the end of his life. He was actually called out, along with a another, very prominent dissident a woman named Anna akhmatova, a poet, and the Soviet authorities were like on akhmatova and zosia and go our troublemakers. And Zhou shanko basically realized that the last part of his life he might have to cool it. And so he did. He sort of went silent. He didn't really write anymore. But we have his body of work and what I have with me, not easy to get, by the way, is his book is called scenes from a bathhouse. Now he doesn't mean a bathhouse in the Gates and but he means scenes out of a place of public bath, where people go, that's the title story, if you will, of this collection, scenes from the bathhouse and other stories of communist Russia, when we pick it up next week, we'll pick up our first story involving this very interesting odd and in some ways revealing Russian writer Mikhail soshenko.

"I'm done with the Odyssey, and we're now venturing into new waters. Instead of doing something really in depth right away, I'm going to take a few days, maybe a week. And introduce you to a rider, you probably haven't heard of. But you're going to really enjoy this because this guy is a character, and he's a humorous, and he's a satirist and what is he satirizing? Well, he's basically satirizing Soviet socialism. And even though Soviet socialism, which is of course collapsed with the Berlin Wall and gloss and perestroika and the Communist Party abolishing itself, it might seem like that has now all receded into history, but there are some weird and almost very telling parallels between what this writer writes about in Soviet society, writing in the 20s, 30s and 40s. And things that we experience in a sense as socialism begins to raise its ugly head here in America and in western society. So have you heard of this guy Michael zosen ko. No, you probably haven't. Of course we follow Russian literature at all. There is incredibly distinguished line of great Russian writers going all the way back. Of course to the 19th century, people like Tolstoy and dostoyevsky and then coming into the 20th century, of course, Maxim Gorky and pasternak, who wrote doctor zhivago and then on through figures like Solzhenitsyn and others. Zhou schenkel is not in that company. He's not would not be seen as a quote great writer. And it's partly because unlike Tolstoy or dostoevsky, he doesn't actually take on great themes. War and peace, crime and punishment. No, this guy as we will see is nothing more than a kind of rye clever and sly observer of Soviet socialism in action. The left doesn't like him. Why? Because he made the Russian people laugh, laugh at their own society, laugh at socialism, laugh at the kind of comic and ridiculous attempt to remake society and remake human nature. And so shanko doesn't bother to argue with any of it. In fact, he operates through fiction, he creates characters. And he just shows you these characters who are essentially, well, their versions of himself. And I don't think it's fair to say that it's all shanko himself, but it's parts of himself in these situations kind of noticing the and participating in the comic absurdity of it all. A little bit of background on this dude, Michael shanko born in 1895, grew up in St. Petersburg in the period before the Russian Revolution. Started off as a writer and people began to notice he was sort of a detached observer. He would notice things. He looks, he doesn't try to be too more or less. He looks at manners instead of morals. So his subject is, let's call it mores. Mores are the customs and the behaviors of people. And he doesn't go to the fantastic the way gogol did, or he doesn't try to probe deep into deep into psychology in the way that he does. He's a strange fellow. He's a little frail, apparently. Sensitive, detached, and when the communists took over in Russia, Lenin, Zhou schenkel joined a group of writers who were, well, they were called fellow travelers. And of course, we used the term fellow traveler today to mean someone who's kind of running alongside socialism. The reason that these writers did that is they didn't want to get into trouble. They basically said, all right, well, you know what, we're sort of on board with the socialism.

"This is WTO P news. The man was the primary source behind the largely discredited steel dossier is acquitted by a jury this week for lying to the FBI. A big blow it's considered for the investigation into the FBI's handling of the Russia investigation. This morning Washington Post reporter felt Rizzo on the jury's decision this week. Igor danchenko is a business intelligence analyst and he was hired by Christopher Steele back in 2016 because CEO had this contract to work for fusion GPS that had retained by various factors on both sides during the 2016 campaign. And basically, danchenko provided the bulk of these explosive allegations that later wound up in the steel dossier in 2016 about Donald Trump. And what he was accused of was when FBI agents interviewed him in 2017 about where he got his information, special counsel John Durham said, well, you know, during the course of these many, many interviews that you had, there were a couple of moments where you might have mentioned an email that you got from one source and you might have, did you really get a phone call from this other source? I mean, he accused him of fabricating the phone call. But the jury, there was no hard evidence that it was made up that the one witness Sergey milian in the phone call wasn't available to testify. In the case crumbled. We're hearing from Trump allies. They're not happy about any of this. They argue that this acquittal doesn't take away from the fact that what the dossier alleges was this conspiracy of connection between Russia and Trump. That's still hasn't been proven. And the dossier has a lot of information that has been specious from the start very questionable from the start stuff that has been debunked. And it has not held up well. That's for sure that's for certain steel was not on trial, and he didn't testify either. He's a British citizen, so he doesn't have to be compelled to come here to testify in our courts. But at the heart of this, danchenko was arguing the information that I gave to steal, I passed along as a rumor and speculation. And he pumped it up to the status of a fact. The truth. So he was upset with steel. They actually met. It was revealed in this trial. And it didn't shanko came away very upset after the meeting and he reported back to the FBI everything that he had said. Oh, that's really interesting that the little twister really quickly here, this investigation has been going on over three years. What has John Durham found?

"Some very tense moment at the border between North and South Korea today at Baxter with more from the Bloomberg newsroom in San Francisco, Eddie. Yeah, escalating in the Asia side as well, South Korea says it dispatched its F-35 fighter jets Doug after the north flew military aircraft near the border. This came after South Korea military said it detected the launch of a short-range ballistic missile early this morning, Japan says that Kim fired two missiles that fell outside of its exclusive economic zone. Now these firings were the latest in a barrage of recent provocations by Kim, North Korea, state media says that the north needs to continue strengthening its nuclear arsenal in response to South Korea's U.S. drills on a continuing basis. The theme of the final January 6th committee hearing before the midterms was that Donald Trump planned months before the November election not to leave office peacefully. The committee documented his plans for the big law beginning in the big lie I should say beginning in July. Congressman Zoe lofgren. In the course of our investigation, we also interviewed Brad parscale, president Trump's former campaign manager. He told us he understood that president Trump planned as early as July that he would say he won the election even if he lost. Now the committee asserted on January 6th, The White House knew that the protesters were armed, dangerous, and would go to the capitol, saying Trump had intimate knowledge in the planning and carrying out of the insurrection. Bloomberg assembly Wilkins says ultimately the committee unanimously voted to subpoena Trump. Today, the committee made it clear they need to hear from Trump himself. Now, of course, as the committee alluded to just before the vote, just because they send the subpoena, doesn't mean that Trump will agree to it. He could easily challenge it and that could potentially lead to more complications both in the court and within Congress. Meanwhile, the Supreme Court had a Trump a loss in his fight over records that the FBI seized at Mar-a-Lago, it refused to intervene and to reinstate a special master's authority to review a set of documents with classified markings. This order is a win for the Justice Department. It came down as one sentence order without an explanation or any noted dissent. Russian missiles continue to fall on Ukraine as many as 40 cities hit now and energy secretary Herman hola shanko says almost a third of the nation's energy infrastructure now has been damaged. More than 80 missiles then it was Tuesdays and its Wednesday and even today that is the first day. They attacked the morning the energy infrastructure. Hello shanko says their aim is to make living in Ukraine unbearable over the winter. In San Francisco, I met Baxter this is Bloomberg. All right, Doug, thank you Eddie. Let's get to our guest June wrong is with us market strategist at IG to discuss the latest on market action. June, thanks for being with us there from Singapore. Very curious day here in the states. We get a hot reading on CPI, the equity market takes off, yield spike across the curve, yet the dollar weakens. How do you make sense of a day like today? Thanks for having me. So it's definitely very interesting to watch her. I mean, we saw an initial move lower for a major U.S. indices. But that was a massively overturned person, I believe that these are extreme berries or positioning, heading into this API print has kind of a driven some deep buyers to challenge this will be key in supply of a newer sellers. So you definitely very interesting to watch. So you kind of have some opposing narrative, as you mentioned in terms of the weekly U.S. dollar. So it does suggest that some of the bullish momentum in terms of the U.S. dollar could be seen some sign of updating at least in the near term, even though I maintain the stance that the overall outside risk to inflation remains. So that should kind of keep the U.S. dollar or at least on the uptrend. But as for now, with these extreme positioning in place and with the U.S. CPI data or behind us now, I think what markets are really trying to focus on will be in terms of the upcoming U.S. earnings season. And I think that the moderation in a valuation on that front kind of provide this low hurdle for outperformance. So I believe that that could be, you know, what has been a catching sort of market attention moving forward and we know that we will be having the major U.S. banks earnings later today. So I think that will be the key focus. Yeah, can we say with any confidence now, given the reaction that we saw following the CPI print that the bottom is in for equities? Yes, I think we can look towards the year end relief rally in global assets. But personally, I believe that the market bottom me potentially only be seen next year. And why I believe that that could be a year and a relief rally or could be attributed to a few effective amino seasonalities one on November December tends to see more or positive or performance the post midterms of performance is also another Catholics. I mean a historical data tends to show that the average or one year written after this election tends to be more positive as compared to the other. So you don't really want to get into the way of these rally. And of course, as I mentioned U.S. earnings, I think a lot of it has been a price in. I mean, expectations are for growth rate for earnings to be at its lowest since third quarter 2020. So expectations hitting into the earnings season are low to begin with. And we have seen it playing in the second quarter, right? Where our corporate earnings

Co chair Liz Cheney says, what is left now is? We must seek the testimony under oath of January 6th, central player. Donald Trump, the committee voting unanimous leader subpoena him and Bloomberg 70 Wilkins says the committee really is looking at a case up the road. It's really teeing up the work, the final conclusion for the January 6th committee, as well as the work for it, the Department of Justice, which is also putting an investigation into the events around the January 6th insurrection. Yeah, meanwhile, the Supreme Court has refused to get involved in Trump's request to return, seized documents from Mar-a-Lago. It has also refused to reinstate a special master, a major victory for the Department of Justice.

Ukraine's energy officials say the operational center that tracks activity at nuclear power plants lost contact with the power plant after some intense shelling around there. The fighting around this plant, which is very large, cause a fire, somewhere on the grounds of the plant, and as a result, the last remaining reactor connected to Ukraine's grid had to be disconnected.

"Right now. There are good options available. I love my Tesla. Absolutely love it. Well, and especially when you think about even 5 years ago, it's just stunning how much there is now. Absolutely. My car has four times the range that my first electric car had. Four times the range. For the same price. Yeah. Amazing. All right, bob. Tell me, this is kind of a weird one. Our coronal loops not real and what our Corona loops. Okay, let's get into this. This was fun. So the sun was in the news this week, obviously. This time, it's a stunning hypothesis actually that the beautiful coronal loops that are produced on the sun may be mostly illusions, potentially forcing a dramatic new take on what's happening in the atmosphere on the sun. This is from the extra physical journal, the title is the coronal veil and led by Anna Milano shanko. She's a scientist at the national center for atmospheric research and CAR. Okay, so coronal loops. I'm going to read you a wonderful description of this from Wikipedia, which is nicely succinct. Let's see, Corona loops are huge loops of magnetic field beginning and ending on the sun's visible surface the photosphere, projecting into the solar atmosphere, the Corona. This hot glowing plasma is trapped in the loops, making them visible. Coronal loops range widely in size up to several thousand kilometers long, they are transient features forming and dissipating over seconds or days. Okay, so that was a really good description of Corona loops. But maybe that definition is going to need a radical change in the near future. So we all know that the sun is hot, right? That's a no brainer, but did you know it's so hot that it rips apart molecules, creating the most common state of matter in the universe? What is it? Say it? Plasma, yes. So now the plasma is electrons and ions create electric currents, which then create powerful magnetic fields. And so those magnetic fields that can extend to the either the far reaches of the solar system, or at the state nearby, where they leave the surface briefly, extending into the Corona, and then dropping back to the surface. And that's what we're talking about. The plasma can get stuck in these loops of magnetic field, and it can leave and it can't leave through the sides. So it's got to just follow and fill these magnetic arcs, creating the beautiful these beautiful structures that we see. So often on the sun. Now, these loops aren't easy to study though, and that's because of the Corona. The Corona is the outermost atmosphere of the sun, and it's usually invisible because of the glare from the surface. But Kara has seen the Corona with her naked eyes, when you saw a total solar eclipse, that's what you see of the sun. You see the Corona peeking out because the glare of the sun is being covered by the moon. So that's the only time you can really see it with your unless you have specialized instrumentation. And bob, I understand that when that happens, you spontaneously break out into singing my Corona, no way. Is that what they do? Not just science. All right, in that case, what could I say? And Brian is an ASTRO fizzle cyst. Sort of. Oh my God, I love that. All right, so the Corona is optically thin. And that means that it's easy to see through, which is wonderful, but it also makes it hard to distinguish structures that are overlapping each other. So then that's where this wonderful 3D simulation comes in a called muram. It's a groundbreaking advance. Really interesting advance here at that can simulate the entire process of loop formation from under the surface to well outside the surface into the Corona. So it's like it's similar to, say, if you could model the full gestalt of a zit from the oil glands beneath the skin surface up to the zit itself and then beyond your face when the zip pops. And that's my favorite analogy of 2022 so far. Now, muram can simulate from 10,000 kilometers below the surface up to 40,000 kilometers into the Corona and for the first time it captures the entire life cycle of structures like solar flares. I'm not sure why they said solar flares because I think I don't know if miram was designed to specifically recreate in the simulation solar flares or they are applying that to these coronal loops. I'm not sure. But miram was it's an amazing advance. So now using this using the simulation they could actually take slices of the Corona and isolate those loops and kind of do away with the problem of the thinness, the optical thinness of the Corona. And when they did that, they found something that could be, I think, could be Nobel Prize worthy. I think now many of these loops, in fact, were not loops at all. Not all of them. They absolutely think that they found or found very good evidence of classic loops as I described, or as Wikipedia described a few a couple of minutes ago, but a lot of them were not loops. What the mirror am simulation of their model showed was that many of the loops were in fact sheets of plasma that had these wrinkles in it. Essentially folded over onto itself. These folded over sections look like thin bright lines exactly how the discrete loops of magnetically confined plasma looks. So now that's the essence of what they are calling an optical illusion. It looks like a genuine coronal loop caused by these magnetic field lines and the plasma. But they think it's not many of these are not that at all. It's like the title of their paper, the solar veil. It's like these sheets are veils of plasma that are folding over itself, creating an over density of plasma that makes them very bright and makes them stand out and the veil itself obviously apparently the veil is very difficult to see, or right now, perhaps impossible to see. It wasn't quite obvious. So the lead author Milano sanko said, I have spent my entire career studying Corona loops. I was excited that the simulation would give me the opportunity to study them in more detail. I never expected this when I saw the results, my mind exploded. This is entirely new paradigm of understanding the sun's atmosphere. Now actually, I wasn't aware of this, but this actually answers some questions that scientists have had over the years about these coronal loops. For one, the magnetic field lines of these loops should spread out the farther it is from the sun, right? I mean, that's just how it works. You guys imagine in your mind that.

I mean, he has been, he's benefited greatly from this relationship with Eddie Hearn specifically financially.

You you let him shave it all off. I agree. I agree. I mean, I mean, you've got to, you gotta do whatever it takes. I mean, you're not gonna make nothing. Like, what would shanko might be taking like less than he wants? But he still making low 7 figures, like he's still gonna get rich. Like, I mean, and he's gonna win. Lomachenko and haney are just built differently in mentality. Lomachenko came into the boxing profession in terms of his not as amateur girl but his procreate, his stipulation with top rank when he signed with them, he wasn't asking for any kind of like crazy bonus. A lot of guys that come in two gold medals in the Olympics and they're looking for gigantic bonuses and huge minimums and all that kind of stuff. Lomachenko sat with bob bearman and his manager's cleanest and their main thing was of course I got a bonus and they got generous minimums at all, but nothing that was outlandish. What lomachenko's means simulation was, can you get me a world championship fight? My pro debut. Bob tried came back to them. This is going back when he signed and like, look, I can't get you the title fight in your debut. What I can do is we can fight a real guy in a regional title type fight at ten rounder in your debut. I can get you the title fight in your second pro fight. And that's what he did. How many fighters do you know of? I don't know if there's any that exists frankly that would be willing to fight.
