Stablecoins in the Hot Seat: Powell Calls Bitcoin a Substitute for Gold
"There was an absolute flurry of content and commentary yesterday around the place of bitcoin. Stable coins defy and the digital asset industry as a whole vis-a-vis. Us government regulation as well as how a digital dollar might shake that all up before we get into it. Let's at the terms of the debate. One of the competitors for this cycles top fudd is the government will ban it if it gets sufficiently threatening now to be clear banning depending on your sister could mean anything from an outright ban of use in holding too forceful seizure too limiting access to on and off ramps to the more benign from a commercial standpoint but no less threatening from a privacy standpoint integration of the full crypto infrastructure into the am l. kyc. Money surveillance apparatus. I've spent some time on this show looking into global versions where this fudd seems to be playing out in particular. We've been watching the evolving situation in india and nigeria india which seems gearing up for a bill that would have some sort of outright ban although at least one finance minister says that that's not the case and nigeria. Where the central bank of nigeria. I reiterated that banks should not be working with crypto users which they've then subsequently rolled back just a little bit either way however really what everyone has been focused on is the us particularly in the context of a new administration. The last administration had friends and foes alike when it came to bitcoin and crypto trump. Famously tweeted that he did not like bitcoin or crypto. But we didn't really take that seriously as a threat because it was so clearly about zuckerberg and libra mnuchin was a much bigger enemy. Probably wrote that text for trump's tweet even and clearly wanted to tighten the reins in his final act. He was trying to require exchanges to collect more information. When users transferred crypto to their own wallets on the flip side however there was brian brooks who was absolutely revolutionary at the office of the comptroller of the currency. The changes he oversaw are a huge reason. Why so many big institutions are now playing in this space. Why so many big traditional banks feel like they have to race to catch up to allow people to offer their customers crypto services however as we know from physics every action has a reaction and to some extent one reason why observers are so keenly watching the biden administration is to see how much they're going to respond or try to walk back with brooks in the occ changed on top of that. As the biden administration has come to power the price and volume around bitcoin stable coins and the rest of the digital asset industries have made them much more on ignore -able last time joe biden was in office. Bitcoin is about four hundred and thirty bucks. Now it's been over fifty thousand dollars for sixteen days in a row tether was barely out of diapers now. It has a market supply above forty billion in his doing upwards of one hundred billion dollars in volume per day combined with us dc. And you've got over. Fifty billion dollars of usd approximates there so lot more is at stake with that. People have been watching. Two things has come in and what they're saying on the who has come inside. Janet yellen is back for another round although this time is treasury secretary rather than as he chair gary genzer to is back. Although this time is as he c- chair. Instead of cftc chair of these two there is much more optimism around gessler who has done a pretty fair bit of work to understand where the crypto industry is coming from even teaching a course at mit about bitcoin and blockchain. And of course we have someone who still around in the form. Of jay powell. The federal reserve chairman. His ex factor. And all these discussions is the potential of a central bank digital currency a digital dollar. That could potentially shift the us's relationship with these projects now in terms of what we've seen these actors say so far over the last few months up until now it's been pretty standard fare one part. There's a lot of exciting potential here. One part we have to protect investors though and one part but it's also used by criminals over the last couple of days however we've gotten both comments and news that could shift as into our next phase of understanding what the us is relationship with. Bitcoin stable coins and other digital assets is going to look going forward. So let's talk about powell speaking about cdc's and cryptos at a bank for international settlements panel yesterday. Let's talk about the announcement of digital dollar prototypes coming this summer. And let's talk about new draft fat. If guidelines around cryptocurrencies. I up powell. Did a session yesterday with leaders from the bank for international settlements including augustine carstens. We talked about last week. He was asked about crypto currencies. And whether he saw them as a threat. And here's what he said. We call them crypto assets. You know. they're they're highly volatile. See bitcoin and therefore not real useful as a store of value in there not backed by anything. They're more of an asset for speculation. So they're also not particularly in use as a means of payment. It's more speculative asset. That's it's essentially a substitute for gold rather than for the dollar. And i think with crypto acids the the the public needs to understand the risks. The principle thing is there's the volatility there's also the outsized energy requirements requirement for for mining. And the fact that they're not backed by anything so let's break out these three reasons that he wasn't particularly impressed by cryptos. I this idea of volatility or that. It's just an asset for speculation. Basically he's dismissing bitcoin and any other crypto as something that he does not have to stress about or really factor into his consideration around global monetary competition while many. Bitcoin is grabbed onto the essentially a substitute for gold piece as a great tweet and knocked to the gold bugs. Who they're trying to convert or at least undermined powell was saying this more. Like a giant shooing away. A fly gold is to him clearly. Irrelevant an unimportant antiquated part of the fiat system that he sits at the helm of in that way a substitute for that thing does not present a threat
MLB announces revised 2021 Spring Training schedule
"Major league baseball announcing this afternoon. A revised two thousand twenty one spring training schedule with times. Cactus league teams like the reds are gonna play twenty. Eight came across thirty days with two off days and grapefruit. League clubs will play a regionalized scheduled. To mitigate travel afford the reds. They will start now. A day later than was originally planned reds playing the indians in goodyear on february the twenty eighth. We are sixteen days away from that. They'll have a day off on saturday march. Sixth on monday march twenty second. Finish up the cactus league on monday. March twenty ninth. They'll have to off days and then open the season in cincinnati against the saint. Louis cardinals a lot of these games we are. I think used for the most part spring training games taking place during the day and they've had more games at night in recent years certainly the last decade since they moved to arizona. I as a sarasota and before then plant city. The number of night games was typically pretty small. And there's been a few more. In recent years there are more for instance that first week of games. They played two games during the day and then four games at six o'clock mountain time. Eight o'clock here and then after that one two three four five six seven eight nine ten eleven twelve thirteen fifteen games in spring training which is not usual in fact. I'm looking here at their home games during the week pretty much. All of their home games are going to be at night. They have three saturday home games and then they have to. One o'clock games that are played during the day. And my guess here is. Maybe and i haven't looked at this. Because i'm kind of doing this on the is you could probably tell his night games against the indians to this year facility with but i wonder if that's in part because they want the indians to go and not travel as much so they're gonna play day games. I don't know but nonetheless more night games than usual but the date you care about. First game is against cleveland in goodyear february. The twenty eighth twenty. Cactus league games and thirty days there remains the possibility that cactus league games at least in the early going are gonna be five innings or seven innings. Just because there's not going to be as many guys in camp. At least at the outset we will see we will see sixteen days between now and and
Cases of Flu Are Down Globally
"Job. Maybe next time you're here you can present. That would be getting green jobs. So i'm just asking when that happened. Richard trumka who is a friend longtime friend of joe biden says about that day one eastone. He says i wish he. The president has paired that. Were carefully with the thing that he did. second by saying. Here's where we are creating jobs. So there's partial evidence from richard trumka. Well you didn't include all of his interview. Would you like to include. How about this. The international union of north america said the keystone decision will cost one thousand existing union jobs and ten thousand projected construction jobs. Well what mr trump. Also indicated in the same interview was that president biden has proposed a climate plan with transformative investments and infrastructure and laid out a plan that will not only create millions of good union jobs but also helped tackle the climate crisis. That guy was peter doocy from fox news and i always hate his questions because he takes four ever to get to the point he just beats around the bush because his conscience is fighting him the whole time and at least that's what it seems like. It's like that tiny little part of them that still has morals and ethics is trying to tell him. He's being deceiving and a bad journalist. But pete here just wants at fox news money one of the more unexpected biden policies. I would say. Just because. I never thought he would actually do. It is that he announced on friday. That trump wouldn't be eligible to receive intelligence briefings anymore. This is the first time that a former president has been cut out of these briefings. But we've never truly had a president trump have we biden explained in that norah o'donnell interview saying quote. I just think that there's no need for him. To have the intelligence briefings. What value is giving him. An intelligence briefing. What impact does he have at all other than the fact that he might slip and say something and he also said that has shown quote erratic behavior. Well that certainly the polite way to say that. He's been acting crazy honestly if he didn't read them well he was president. Why should he get them now. I mean the way. I imagine it. They practically had to create puppet shows and plays to get him the information that was in those briefings like they probably had to act it out for him. The man doesn't or possibly can't read so the story here as promised is about the flus really bad year sir remember. I talked a couple weeks ago. About how bad well not. How bad how good for us it was that. This year's flu season is almost nonexistent. In that was in new york city as it turns out that sort of the case. Globally this reporting from the atlantic followed a doctor from the mayo clinic in rochester minnesota. And they just sort of talked it over with them. What they're seeing in. Why we might be seeing this really good flu season for us. He said on december first that they began testing all patients with respiratory symptoms for covert and the flu so thousands and thousands of these tests have turned up positive for covid but out of the twenty thousand flu tests that they've run which is ten times. The usual number zero have come back positive for the flu since early fall. Eight hundred thousand flu tests in the. Us have been done and only fifteen hundred have been positive. That's point two percent for context. That's about one hundred times so last year. We had a hundred times more cases at this time when we had done. Eight hundred thousand tests back then. The flu positivity rate was anywhere between twenty and thirty percent twenty and thirty percent a lot of other respiratory viruses have disappeared as well well disappeared in quotes because they're still out there somewhere including ones for the common cold. Obviously the reason for this is the number of restrictions and precautions that we've had to put in place social distancing masks etc and all of those help because the regular flu and covid spread in pretty much the same ways however covert spreads more easily because it can be passed on by people who don't even have symptoms in front example just look at all these super spreader events. That didn't happen before. It's not like if you went to the movie theater and just anyone had the flu. You al- suddenly got the flu. There are also differences at the macroscopic level. Like how it sticks to the particles that we exhale when we breathe or talk like cova sticks more easily so is easier to transmit of course doctors

Public health expert: 50 percent effective coronavirus vaccine would be 'better than what we have now'
"We hit five million US cases yesterday for some perspective. The first nineteen case in the United States is believed to have occurred on February six. We hit one million cases on April Twenty, eight, eighty, two days later. It then took just forty three days to hit the two million mark on June tenth. We hit the three million mark on July seven that was twenty seven days later then just sixteen days later we rich four million US cases and July twenty third and again it took us just sixteen days to hit this five million reported case number right here in the United States joining me now is Dr Tom ingles beans, the director of the Center for Security of the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health Dr Ingles. Be Welcome back to meet the press. WanNa get a little big picture here. You know last week you were you put out a lengthy list of ten recommendations. You guys didn't call it a reset, but sort of like how do we get control of this virus? Now another one of your sort of colleagues in the larger sense Michael Star home is an op Ed. He's basically calling for a reset of some sort New York Times today editorial page calling this. It feels though as public health officials are all calling for some sort of reset. Partial. lockdowns things like this and yet we are not having that conversation at all on the political side of things. Are, are we doomed to sort of live with this virus now if we're not GONNA at all look at your recommendations I DON'T THINK WE'RE DOOMED To this fate I? Think we we know what to do. Other countries have done it. I think the purpose of these resetting reports these for a kind of a reestablishment of the basics. Is that we know that another country's universal masking fiscal, distancing, avoiding large gatherings. Those kinds of things have worked. If we look at countries like Italy and Spain and France, they have a total of about seven or eight deaths today and we have thousand, but it's not magic what they did. We know what they did. So I think if we act together in national unison, we can get there and that's what the purpose of these many of these reports are I want to bring up the issue of masks there've been some people that said if we had ninety five percent compliance unmask wearing, we could get rid of we could sort of get this fires under control. Is that unrealistic and we do need to do more than just mandating masks Do. Not, alone. Not by themselves or alone the solution, but they are a critical part of it. We know that physical distancing makes a big difference. We know that large gatherings are places where super spreading events occur and people have the opportunity or the virus has the opportunity to get around quickly and for. Many people at once. So we have to do a number of things together in terms of you know simple things like diagnostic testing results coming back much more quickly. It's it's unacceptable for the country to have to have testing comeback a week or even two weeks later it's not useful at that point there's no point even doing the test. So a number of that we have to do, but they're not they're not complicated they may be hard, but we have to do them kind of in unison. And all of those, they're not hard except when you when the word politics gets involved, it makes everything a little bit harder and I wanNa keep you out of the political space here. Let me ask you a question about that scenes and to sort of set expectations doctor Fauci implied that the first vaccine that we get, he hopes it's seventy five percent effective. The FDA has said they will approve any vaccine that's at least fifty percent effective. Can you explain to the public what that means what it means and what it doesn't mean and what our expectations should be for the first vaccine Well, we know that many of the vaccines that we use are not perfect. They don't prevent every case of disease but if they prevent a substantial portion of disease than that can help us get to a point where most of us are protected, the disease can spread quickly between people anymore a concept that is called her immunity. Herd immunity doesn't mean we will won't disease anymore. It means it's not gonNA efficiently as efficiently spread in an epidemic form. and. Is there a percentage figure in your mind that you think will sort of give us a huge? Huge step in the right direction is at a vaccine that is at seventy five percent or does fifty percent do you fear that could be a false sense of hope. I think we would take fifty percent because it's fifty percent is a lot better than what we have. Now we've we've no tools to no no vaccine tools or medicine tools that we can use to slow this down. So fifty percent would be would be far better than what we have. Now of course I think we all want something that is seventy, five, eighty, five. Ninety percent effective. But we'll have to see what we get and I think for the amount of time has passed since the beginning of this pandemic to have a vaccine that's even fifty percent effective in in the coming months or the beginning of twenty twenty, one would be phenomenal. But again, we hope it's better but fifty percent would be better than what we have now. Tom ingles be from Johns, Hopkins One of our experts that we have on here regularly, really appreciate you coming on and sharing your expertise with us. Sir.

COVID-19: What You Need To Know
"This is an ABC news special. Kobe nineteen what you need to know here is. Abc News correspondent. Aaron Katersky as this school year nears an end. Parents wonder about the start of the next academic year. We'll schools welcome kids back. What will the classroom look like or will there still be online? Learning the answers dependent part. On what the virus does to kids and how kids transmit the virus. The World Health Organization said over the weekend that children appear to be less capable of spreading corona virus than adults. The comment came from the. Who's chief scientist? Sumio Swaminathan who appeared on the BBC? What we have seen in countries where schools remained open is that they have not been big outbreaks in schools and where there have been seen associated with we defense. A lot of people gather not in regular classrooms and it's often been associated with Donald who's had infection and who spread it so it does seem from what we know now that children are less capable of spreading it even if they get infection and certainly are very low risk of getting from the Z's for more on what all of this may mean. We're joined by Dr Edith Bradshaw Sanchez. A pediatrician and professor of pediatrics. At Columbia University. What do you make of her comments here? I think some of the reports that we're seen in the comments that were seeing from the. Who are definitely reassuring. I just want more data so a number of things have gone into into these comments from what I understand and there are countries that have opened schools Germany Denmark Some parts of Canada in those countries are not seeing big outbreaks of covert nineteen in children linked to schools which is reassuring but we just need more data. These countries have also done a variety of things to keep kids safe in school Germany. For example we've rent reports that they are having children self test every four days and given a green sticker to kids test negative and allowing them to walk around the school without a mask on some schools are taking temperature. Some schools have introduced a variety of social distancing in hygiene techniques. So so when we look at this at these reports and we we look at the lack of outbreaks linked to children after they were allowed to go back to school. It is reassuring but we have to remember that there are measures that these countries have taken and that we don't have all of the information yet. Really the bottom line is can. My kids hug their grandparents. Yeah I think that's such an interesting point for a long time and longtime in the cove world is a few months for a long time. We've been thinking about children in terms of the risk that they pose to adults. We've been saying okay. Well my kid goes back to school. Can they? Then come home and bring me the corner virus or bring the current virus to to grandma and GRANDPA if they visit in now. Not only. Is it that that is very much too little consideration? But now we're starting to learn for example that there is a new rare but serious complication of covert nineteen seems to affect children very differently than an affects adults. And now I think that the conversation starting to switch to what is the risk to children themselves from Bo Bo from going back to school. What's the answer? I wish I had it but I just don't know we just don't know there are reports for example right there. There is a report of a child. I believe from England who was in the French Alps and then went home. Was In contact with seventy two people that child himself tested positive for current a virus. None of the seventy two people. He came into contact with tested positive. So that was reassuring but then we had another report of a six month old whose parents had couvert nineteen and the child had to be cared for in the hospital and so they were constantly testing this little baby six months old and he shut the virus at very high levels for sixteen days. The data so far has been mixed in. I think that's why it's so important that we collect more data in children and the NIH as you probably have heard launched a study at the beginning of May to follow two thousand families to try to answer this question. What exactly is the rate of transmission? What exactly is the risk to children because we just haven't been collecting the data yet. Pediatric Multi Symptom Inflammatory Syndrome. What do we make of that? Does it matter whether it specifically connected to cove it as the CDC seems to suggest that it is? I do believe that it is linked to covert nineteen. And I'll tell you why. This new syndrome seems to have some characteristics of Kawasaki disease but it also has some characteristics. Overlap toxic shock syndrome. And I'll explain very very briefly Kentucky Diseases and inflammatory condition. It is cost by inflammation and then the the blood vessels in the body are affected. Ultimately different organs can be affected. The one that we worry about is the heart children present with fever with the red. Is the rash The swollen hands feed swollen. Lymph nodes some of the same symptoms that we are now seeing in this new condition but the difference one of the many differences that we're still learning is that these children were presenting with the new syndrome also seemed to have some of those symptoms from toxic shock. They are very sick when they present to care. They sometimes have low blood pressures and signs that there multiple there's multiple organ systems that are affected. And that doesn't go with Kawasaki. Disease it also here before cove it so we can of spectacularly Why are they testing? Summer testing negative for the antibodies and the virus itself. And that is absolutely puzzling. But I think at the end of the day you just sort of have to take a step back and think okay well. Even if it's not linked terrific can't prove it yet for some of these kids remember them majority are testing positive. And where was this before cove
What Are The World's Biggest, Baddest Jigsaw Puzzles?
"Even before. It became a popular way to while away the hours days and weeks during isolation putting together. Jigsaw Puzzles was a favourite family activity. But did you know that? Jigsaw Puzzles have their origin in education. Sir John Spills Berry an English engraver and map maker in the mid. Seventeen hundred is credited with creating the first jigsaw puzzle in seventeen seventy six by attaching a map of the world to a piece of wood then cutting the country's out teachers used the maps to teach geography to their students and a recreational activity was born spills berry would hardly recognize his creation today in the early part of the twentieth century. Jigsaw Puzzles were used as marketing tools often given away or sold for mere pennies today companies. Still use puzzles for creative marketing. Take Kodak for instance. It's selling what it. Claims is the quote world largest jigsaw puzzle. We HAVE TO ADMIT. This thing is pretty huge. The fifty one thousand three hundred piece puzzle features twenty-seven injuries from around the world and when completed measures twenty eight point five feet by six point. Two five feet. That's eight point six meters by one point nine meters and this beast costs more than four hundred dollars but all due respect to the Kodak Jigsaw puzzle. The world's largest jigsaw puzzle by surface area. According to Guinness World Records was put together in Dubai in July of twenty eighteen. The puzzle was an honor of the year of Ziyad a year long tribute to the founding father of the United Arab Emirates. The late Shahid there are more than twelve thousand pieces in the puzzle which was an image of Zayed the official record size measured sixty five thousand nine hundred and five point one seven square feet which is six thousand one hundred twenty two point six eight square meters putting together. Jigsaw puzzles is a Greek group activity but one thousand six hundred students of the University of Economics Ad Hoc Human City in Vietnam took it to the next level. When they completed the jigsaw puzzle with the most pieces on record five hundred fifty one thousand two hundred and thirty two to be exact when it was finished the puzzle measured just over. Forty eight by seventy six feet about fourteen by twenty three meters. It took the students seventeen hours to create the massive puzzle which featured a lotus flower with six petals. But what about the hardest jigsaw puzzle? Ever it contains only nine pieces and it's called the puzzle nine it was designed by Asaka. It includes a small board. The nine pieces include right angles and curved edges. That fit together in several combinations. Think Tetris but way harder. The challenge is getting the last piece to fit. It's nearly impossible to fit all the pieces on the board. It took Chris Ramsey a magician video creator and master puzzle or two hours nine minutes to solve the ice nine and by his own description. He was completely exhausted. By the end of the experience. You Sokha created another equally. Difficult puzzle called the Jigsaw Puzzle. Twenty nine the challenge here is to fit twenty nine pieces into a five by five inch. That's twelve by twelve centimeter trae. It comes with five corner pieces. Just let that sink in. Then there's the largest hand cut wooden jigsaw puzzle Guinness record held by Dave Edmunds England. Who created a forty thousand seven hundred sixty three piece puzzle celebrating the Queen's Diamond Jubilee the puzzle which featured thirty-three Images of Jubilee celebrations was twenty by eight feet? That's six by two and a half meters. When completed though it collapsed soon after Evans completed it took him and force. More than sixteen days to rebuild the puzzle and move at Sandringham where it went on display and was confirmed as the Guinness World record holder. We spoke by email with Caitlin vesper records manager with Guinness World Records North America. She said one of the main criteria for all Guinness World Records titles is that they must be breakable. Every record titled S- monitored is open to being challenged which allows for all kinds of record breaking opportunities all over the world. The Guinness record for most Jigsaw puzzle pieces tattooed on the human body belongs to the aptly named enigma. Sometimes known as Paul Laurence. Who'S A sideshow performer? Actor musician originally from Seattle in two thousand eleven enigmas set the record for having two thousand one hundred twenty three puzzle pieces tattooed on his body from head to toe in no word on whether anyone comes close to second but many puzzle records are held by companies such as the record for the largest spherical jigsaw puzzle. It measured fifteen point seven feet. That's four point. Seven seven meters in circumference and it was made by unit industrial limited in Hong Kong and featured scene from Winnie the Pooh vesper said brands and businesses. Come to US looking to harness the power of record-breaking to commemorate anniversaries and celebrations or to highlight the launch of a new product. Whole communities can come together to attempt to record to a like in March of two thousand nineteen when more than one thousand seven hundred people formed the largest human jigsaw puzzle piece on record a I. The record raised awareness for autism spectrum disorder. The puzzle pieces the symbol for the autismspeaks organization. Vesper explained each Guinness World. Records title has a set of guidelines. That must be followed. The record for the largest human jigsaw puzzle piece is a great example to highlight. This is considered one of our largest human image categories and the idea is to have a group of people gathered together to form a recognizable image. We define a jigsaw puzzle piece as an oddly shaped interlocking and Tessa leading piece designed to be part of a larger picture. The human image to be created would need to be instantly recognizable as a puzzle piece and not an entire puzzle. This record title can be broken if another group creates same image with a larger group of people. Anybody up for the challenge.

The US Is In A Bear Market
"Yeah. We're in a bear market actually officially officially in a bear market when the market falls down to more than twenty percent from its highs last one we saw we almost were there are in two thousand eighteen so close. I mean Again not never to be flippant about this but the true last bear market was two thousand. Eight two thousand nine when stocks fell twenty percent and then by the way they went on to fall into their forty five percent after hitting that bear market the different this time obviously it's the krona virus and it's it's the cove in one thousand nine hundred and the impact that has having on Citizens of the world governments countries and businesses. But there were how fast this happened. Things falling just asked us ever ever Seen Days Sixteen Days Robert Wright in the previous record you know when it was it was like forty something days set in nineteen twenty nine so which nineteen twenty nine. If memory serves another not guess or so. This happened so fast. Much faster than two thousand eight much faster than even two thousand eighteen which was pretty fast. I mean when when the stocks fell almost twenty percent. That happened over the course of forty days or so so we saw this really quick reaction and then the difference. Of course there's so much uncertainty with what the impact of all this is going to be and this week we saw governments citizens people schools close here in the US. Italy BASICALLY SHUT DOWN. Its country and we're starting to see that now. Play into the psychology of investors and institutions by the way to not just individuals institutions. Actually more institutions. And just the the the impact this is having on the markets and we're seeing the small caps down Tw- More than twenty percent just this week just this week. They're down about twenty five percent so really. We had a nice bump on Friday but but a lot of volatility in the markets right. Yeah so we've been doing this show for about five years and so that means for about five years you've been saying you know this bull market. It's you know there's Gonna I mean. How often do we get a bear market every time you do right so are you happy? Now Bro are you happy. Finally you got your Bare Martin. I'm not happy I'm not happy. Here's what I here's what I am. A proud of that is a message. It's been from the Motley fool as well as this podcast. And that is these times. Do come you may not want all of your money in the stock market especially in terms of having an emergency fund any money you need in the short term. If you're retired have an income cushion I am thinking most mostly these days about the emergency fund thinking of those people whose jobs will be affected all the people at restaurants in the travel industry who worked at the sports arenas all these people who are going to see a significant disruption to their income and I hope they have an emergency fund and I hope the government steps in to help them as well. Unfortunately I think the stat bro. There's a significant amount of the population. That is that is Paycheck to paycheck. And you know barely has a few hundred dollars into the into that savings account. Emergency funds so hopefully a lot of listeners Over the years five years and twenty five years of the Motley fool is we've been talking about how to how to think about saving investing. Hopefully they they have followed along so this this will help cushion the blow a little bit. Yeah at the ascent. They did some research and they found that eighty percent of Americans aren't confident. They missed three paychecks. I mean at just that just hurts. You really feel for them scary. Also because now than the number is about eighty Eighty percent likelihood of of a recession sometime Globally in the next few months. Oh I it is going to be. As Robert said very disruptive sedan to so many lives especially those that are More tied to the Ghia economy Not Necessarily W. Two but much more ten ninety. Yeah I'll just point out that we actually devoted a whole episode to having an emergency find. It was early in two thousand nineteen when the federal government shutdown. We talked about the importance of emergency. And then where to turn once your emergency fund is gone so if you are in that position where you've run your bank account down. Look FOR THAT EPISODE. And we had some backup might decrease. Yeah so no. I don't had global pandemic in their office pool so why the bull market would come to an end. Why isn't that Bill Gates Bill? Bill Gates have been talking about for so he can he can afford it. He can pray for. He's going to be okay. Warren Buffet actually wrote about it back in one thousand nine hundred eighty seven so he also someone who eventually got arrays a long-term investors a long-term thinker

WLGM 101.7 The Spiralnauts
"To you. Did what now a podcast? We're discuss stories and science and tech. Where we that makes ask exactly that. Everyone thinks listening. I'm your host Stephanie. Educator and science afficionado Michael Programmer Tech Guy. You're you're not an algorithm. How're you doing Michael? Good busy busy. How are you doing? Say That Corona Vars. Now I've you know. Can I make the joke? Coronas still bad even put a lime in it for what it's healthier you. Yeah no but I am going to San Antonio this week Apparently there's some some refugees from China coming to San Antonio Refugee. It's but you know. People escaping mature American citizens and their supposedly going to be kept in quarantine there now and I'm going this week so Good luck to me. I guess rotavirus onto my very best. If I see someone with a mask I'll be like away so no I think we'll be fine anyway so no. I wanted to talk about something with you today. Do you know that we made contact with aliens? Oh Yeah isn't that now? I actually have a joke here. Who's Alien Will Smith Right? He's is him all the time. Yes absolutely no. Scientists have been monitoring this for a while. It's a mysterious signal from deep. Space is repeating itself in Sixteen Day Cycles Sixty Day cycle so the Mayans had their long year. They broke things up into weird like sixteen over sixteen days. So it's six sixteen. What's relevant vest? Sixteen is there some like mythical? Can we get some national treasure seeking here and break the code? What sixteen days? What's what's that me. We don't know we don't have. We have no idea why it's repeating itself every sixteen days but it's called an effort be a fast radio burst and it's a pulse that it ranges from a fraction of a millisecond to a few milliseconds And it's caused by some high energy astrophysical process. We don't completely understand it. And we've monitored some of these things before but the current one they're looking at just. It seems to be repeating itself every sixteen days since October. The okay that's weird that certainly we do stuff like that right. In the in the opposite direction are we blasting signals out all in all directions of space. Probably that every sixteen days but every whatever we decided to. Yeah well that's one of the things. So where is this coming from? What is this and so this the signal that's coming? It's called fast radio bursts but it's actually takes a lot of Technology to to monitor it to even see it. It's not something that you could go outside and see the. Cto radio burst happening in the sky. Radio you'll see your radio waves anyway. I like you you can see the FM radio waves beaming into your radio. No no no specific frequency like where what wearing the spectrum does this fall while it says that it is described as a thousand times less than a mobile phone from the moon would be. That's the equivalent of the pulse that we're picking up So we're picking up. Does that mean that we can make also the moon? Is that what you're telling me I'll have also have received Syr. Somebody can monitor radio waves from the mirror. Not I should have reception on the moon. I'M GONNA call variety and make sure. Can you hear me now? No no but Yeah so that's the question is what is this coming from? Is this coming from a natural phenomenon. There are proposed. People are proposing. It could be coming from a neutron star or a black hole of some sort but the fact that it is being repeated every sixteen days. Usually these things are pretty random if they happen the fact that it's repeating is a bunch of people are asking. Could this be some sort of sign of extra terrestrial intelligence? Sure maybe what would be the sixteen day cycle is what we I guess. We're GONNA fix it on what we rotate I mean. Earth rotates every day so our booby through sixteen days. It's not like there's no path of sixteen days like through the cycle around the sun and like okay every sixteen days. We happen to be pointed in the right direction to pick this up. So it's gotta be and it's it's probably not due to something that based on how a reading it at it's something that's coming like it or is the single exist every eight days and we just don't say it we know it's not nothing on our end that's preventing were that's causing us to receive the signal every sixteen days so it would whatever is causing it to repeat in that way is happening on its and five hundred million light years away from Earth in some spiral galaxy is what they're theorizing. Sure we've columnist or not. No I mean so. Yeah so the fact that it's every sixteen days is maybe some evidence that it is not any sort of intelligent life. Because why would they send a signal? Only every sixteen days like you said we are sending signals into space continually. So yeah. That's that's what people are questioning is. What is the sixteen day significance without? So you're saying that that that is if it's intentional doesn't necessarily have to be intentional. Could it be New Year celebration? Is maybe they're they're years only sixteen days or whatever the equivalent is and they just happened to be launched this crazy festival at spews noise out into the atmosphere into the space and we just happened to be picking it up and we're just picking up every year celebrations. They have a festival every sixteen days. Maybe they're maybe they're year cycle is only sixteen days. Yeah they have to do fireworks every sixteen days. That sounds exciting Or yet we're we're putting our human earth terms on whatever galaxy the this signal would be coming from you know we rotate around the earth. In two hundred sixty five days we spin around our access in twenty four ish hours of but their whole system of time make be completely different than ours they may experience it in assuming it is some sort of artificial life not sorry assuming it is Sort of extraterrestrial life artificial natural. I guess Oh could be either or Yeah but no they could be experiencing time in a completely different way And if they you know what if what if going around like sixteen hours sixteen hours could be the equivalent of one of our days even so maybe it takes them sixteen hours to rotate around their access. And so the signal is your sorry sixteen days just to go around their their access. And so yeah. So that's what you know. I I personally am not an expert in astronomy. I don't have You know a lot of education in it but what does interest me is the astrology aspects of it so Assuming that if this to come from some extraterrestrial life what would they be like you know living on some sort of planet five hundred million light years away? And what is that significance of the sixteen days? What we'll do if that was. If sixteen days was equal to one of our days one trip around day or night or one trip around the sun. What would that do to the physio to their how they have evolved into a being? What would that look like is interesting to me?
Ending sexual violence against girls must be our goal: UNFPA chief
"Day. Thirty three thousand girls under the age of eighteen. A married often against their will and one in three women will face sexual violence ending. These scourges is the aim of the sixteen days against Raanan campaign led by the UN sexual and reproductive health agency UNFPA. Hey which ended on Tuesday the tenth of December Human Rights Day he is the agency's Executive Director Doctrine Italia cane. I'm speaking to you and uses Daniel Johnson in Geneva the sixteen days against violence campaign and today on Human Rights Day and it is really important to highlight the prevalence. How common violence. Against Women and girls is and it's also really important to act during the decade of Action. On the Sustainable Development Goals these sixteen sixteen days are crucial so how widespread is gender-based violence. It's shocking the gender based violence is so prevalent one in three women or girls in their lifetime affected and in some of the places where the UN serves like South Sudan. You might as well say. They won in one because the prevalence is at ninety percent and this is trauma. This is trauma. That's not only physical but as women have told me over and over the one that you don't see is the one that cuts the
What is a Bunyip?
"I always thought the Bunyip was a mythical creature an aboriginal belief about a creature with supernatural for natural powers that lived in swamps billabong creeks riverbeds and waterholes that is until I went on my walkabout I walked about yeah I saw the devilish evil spirit nearly face to face living in the world of my rite of passage on my right of passage trying to make the spiritual traditional transition into manhood I so he was masturbating on his walkabout I was aware of Bunyip sightings before but I always felt that there were made up stories that were told to children to make them stay away from dangerous areas of water I had read the Bunyip said dark for face a dog sharp teeth and claws flippers a duck like bill tusks and even horns and that someone even described it as having ahead like an EMU and the body and legs of an elevator Oh my God this is just a mishmash of crap but most people who encountered them were too afraid of these futures to be able to take notice of their appearance on my walkabout I was admiring nature walking around the middle of nowhere and hoping to obtain the personal satisfaction that would make it a home alive at the end of my adventure that I took in the outback Oh my God I realized that most people usually recount their wilderness trek by exaggerating every detail of what happened happen to them adding all these details to provide extra excitement and trill by certainly not one of those storytellers my trip started out being very dull as I was and I was okay with that as I was not looking for any near death experiences are we ever yeah like maybe almost die on this about my adventure was about being far away from my towns and cities and living off the land or survive this was not an excuse for me to take a holiday or to shirk any work that I could have been doing as I consider my walkabout about to be an important institution of my Australian upbringing my mom is an aborigine and she told me about the cuss this custom and I was hoping to meet some interesting aborigines that I could communicate indicate with but this was the most walkabout I think in his rite of passage not drink his walk this is so weird but this is mostly Isley desert that I would be in and unpopular places that usually unpopulated so I might not meet anyone I wanted to embrace a lifestyle that is firmly rooted in nature and I had hoped to develop specific nick skills and talents that would allow me to respond to this rural environment this was a way for me to stop binge watching that sure is something that I had been and doing way too much of at the time I should have taken a camera with me but all I cared was my Swiss army knife I was used to sleeping out under the stars and eaten a few bugs in my day spiders riders Lizards Scorpions and snakes did not scare me eating them no just separate thought oh of all the the Scorpions spiders lizards Scorpions snakes this guy is all over I was actually really expecting him to start telling what he was watching Netflix that is as long as they were not crawling all over me I knew that is going to be a hot dry and dusty however hated the humidity and as I was not really fond of flies and Mazey's excuse probably Australian idiom I enjoyed eating kangaroo when I got hungry so I thought that I was ready but I did not possess all the the secrets of survival and I didn't realize until it was too late at read that the outback claims an average of forty lives a year and I study up all the basic survival tips for being in the outback I knew how to light a fire without matches a new enough to wear a hat and to try and stay in the shade during the day I understood that the only thing that really matters in the outback is having enough water to drink and and I knew that I could never carry too much water with me is I would not be able to survive without it my mom showed me how to locate rock formations that are prone to catch water and these with likely would be likely to be safe to drink from she also taught me how to dig up below the surface where I might find water when I came across a dry creek bread bed my big mistake was I had not spent a lot of time being in areas that are well off the beaten track areas venomous creatures are looking at every step of the way. This is exactly what I think because you know like Australia has the most venomous animals yeah well it's weird that he's like I've I'm used to bugs and venomous creatures and eating Scorpions the the Bundy up but now he's like but I'm not used to venomous creatures and I'm like bitch you just said you are what's happening okay continue my first Dan this adventure I made a spear and I practised practice throws you got all the time I was going with an open mind and I thought that I might come in Handy as able to navigate by the sun during the day and also get bearings from the stars at night most of my time was spent searching searching for food but I do not stop at several waterholes to wash up and but I did stop at several waterholes to wash up and if they're big enough I did enjoy a leisurely dip from time to time I I had no particular destination mind so there was no hurry for me to get any place as a result I was taking it slow and easy moving along at my own pace after sixteen days of being in the outback that's insane Oh my God or holy showcase I was like he's taking a walk hike like why is he doing all this person out now this is like his like saying is right of passage so it stays in days this is making more sense now because he's going on a two hour hike and he's doing like a nine week like survival on this little hike okay sixteen days of being in the outback it started raining and the rain continued for several days which made the Earth Turn Red Earth turn green and the river started to overflow I I was so happy to see the rain that I started dense that I started dancing around it was coming down but after two days of a steady downpour and I wanted it and I climbed up a tree to feed out of the puddles that we're all around and that is when I saw that I I was not sure what I was looking at but then I put it together that this was indeed a Bunyip Bunyip dry saw had a long had long looking in front legs in thick short hind legs that appeared to be very strong had long closet and it was covered in grey feathers God when it was in the water it was able to swim like a frog rog but when it got to the shore it walked on its hind legs standing twelve or thirteen feet being about the size of a small cow I felt safe being up in a tree but my curiosity was starting to get the better of me and I wanted to get a closer look I was not sure if this creature was a ferocious carnivore Predator or maybe it was just a gentle urban for but I stayed up in the tree thinking that it's better to be safe than sorry that is the story I am sticking with and you can believe me or not okay you don't even know what to say well I think it's funny that like twelve or thirteen feet tall that's two of me can you imagine to like how tall it is he balcony of my house and then he's like yes so it was about the size of a small cow well what an like if accounted up straight they'd be pretty
