"While it's raining down low, we're also gonna find a drier weather tomorrow, so after a wet Saturday, we're gonna move on to drier weather on Sunday, partly sunny skies, temperatures are gonna be in the 40s once again. And then we're dry on Monday and Tuesday. In the center of the song, come on in. Now, back to aging options right here on northwest news radio. There you go. Each and options on northwest news radio, that song by the way, time to get a loan by The Beach Boys. A real good one. Look it up now. Unless you're driving in which case, focus on the road. Here is the number to call. Two O 6. Four two one 5 6 6 6 two O 6 four two one 5 6 6 6. Today's theme is housing and if you have a question about that, we are especially taking questions on housing and speaking Rajiv of housing. I want to ask you a question Any retirement planning. We are talking about housing. That doesn't mean that housing is the entire sphere of retirement planning. If you have retirement on your mind, any questions housing health, legal, anything that you want to talk about. I am a lawyer so we can talk about will's trust positive turning what's the probate idea about probate? Is that really what you want to protect? How do trust really protect you from different things? We can talk about just about any subject that is connected to retirement tanning. There you have it, two O 6 four two one 5 6 6 6 two O 6 four two one 5 6 6 6. And Rajiv, going back to what I was mentioning just now. You talk about the need for people to live out the lives of their lives in their own home. And I want to ask you, how many people actually get to live out their lives at home? And we talked about the Stanford University actually did a study on that and turns out about 30% of Americans will be lucky enough to be able to deliver their hopes of being able to deliver their lives in their own home, which means 70% of Americans, 70% of Americans will not be where they would like to be when they are taking their aspirin. I mean, it's the saddest statistic in America, and it's not because we don't do retirement planning. All the retirement planning goes too much. When you compare it to the results that we end up getting, what is the point of doing all this retirement planning, when in the end, we live life as long as we are healthy as great. We are living a dream. No one's going to tell us what to do. But the moment we lose our health, everything starts falling apart. And all the money in the world didn't help. People like Stan Lee and Tim Conway and Casey kism, none of these people were able to live out their lives in their own home. They did not have money. They had lots of money. So this crazy thinking that all I need is money and all I need to focus on is how to invest money and let me get smart by the whole thing. Yeah, that's important. I get it. I mean, I get the reality why we need to do that. This is something we can control, something that makes us feel accomplished. But absolutely make no mistake about it. This is not what's going to give you the retirement that you're looking for. All the money in the world will not do it. And there's no long-term care insurance policy can buy that comes with a guarantee that because you have a long-term care insurance policy, you will not end up in a care facility. So this crazy thinking that we have around these issues is just crazy. Tarek? Absolutely. Hey, again, here is the number to call. Two O 6 four two one 5 6 6 6 two O 6 four two one 5 6 6 6. And another question regarding housing that I want to get thoughts from you on is what are the steps in having a better housing plan in your opinion Rajiv? I did a step one as you really have to reflect on what retirement is going to be. You know, what do you want out of your retirement housing plan? What are you looking for in the housing plan? And I bet you the majority of us are looking to have a plan that says that I have a I have some high degree of assurance that this is the house I'll be able to live the rest of my life. No matter what happens, the day I fall a little care comes to me. I don't want to be a burden, which means that my children, my family members, my spouse, my loved ones, they're not my unpaid caregivers in the process, and that I'm not going to go broke in the process because ultimately you realize that Medicare does not cover long-term care bills. And the cost to long-term care can be a few $1000 a month if you're lucky to upward of 8010 thousand, $12,000 a month for every single month you're living. So the first thing you need to do is to you have to visualize the very end of your life and say, what do I want from my housing plan? Are you comfortable with the idea that you know I want to live here as long as I can when the time counts that it becomes too much? Let's say I have a stroke and paralyzed. I have dementia or I have some sort of a medical illness. I fall down break my head on that day, it's okay. I'll go to a care community. If you're comfortable with that, great. Then you've got the plan you need. But if you are saying, I know, the day that I fall ill, I want to be able to access the care wherever I am living at that time. I don't want to be moved to a place I don't know anyone, everyone's going to tell me what to do. And I'll have no control over my life. That's the first thing you need to do. Once you have that in place then you can start putting the pieces together. There you go. Again, the number to call two O 6 four two one 5 6 6. 6, there's another 6 in there. Again, two O one, four sorry, my computer that in front of me with a list of the phone numbers just went crazy on me. Here we go. 206-421-5666 is the number to call and Rajiv, we only have a couple of minutes here, but we do have a caller with a question, so we are gonna head out to Jesse with a retirement question. Now, Jessie, we may have to cut you off mid call to take a quick break, but we wanna hear your full question. Welcome to the show. Yes, thank you for having me. Thank you for taking my call. My question is about my home. It's not quite paid for. And it was a crazy move because I retired in the process of paying off my home. So my question is, is can I use my home for retirement like in a reverse mortgage situation? And do you advise that? Because that's in my, that's my number one goal at this point. Right. And you know, Jesse, I'll give you a short answer and then stay on and on the other side, I'll give you a better answer. The short answer is, if you have done all the planning and you are sure that even if you were to fall ill, you will not have to leave this home. A reverse mortgage will be a God sent to you. It is an expensive product to get into. If there is any chance that you will have to move for any reason because you change your mind about the house because your health fell apart because any number of reasons. If you have to move, then the reverse mortgage would be the wrong way for you to be approaching the planet. So stay tuned, absolutely. On the other side of the break, I'm going to give you a more complete answer as to why that is.

I think Canadian mist was the best Canadian whisky. No dude too. Any important storm. Is it just whisky? Is that all it is? I think that was a Canadian. Was there any port in a storm? Yeah. It'll do. Todd will take any whisky and then apply like a lemon or lime carbonated beverage to it that sugary and he's like, here you go. And he just hands me like he could be slowly poisoning me.

That is aged in? Yes. It's interesting. Look at that thing. Somebody, look at that. So the first time. That was great. No, I'm helping our listeners learn because I know these things.

"From UBS all around the world. 8 22 in Paris 7 22 here in London, welcome back to the globalist. Now fighting is continuing unabated between government forces and tigrayan rebels in the north of Ethiopia. But while this goes on, peace talks have resumed to try to bring an end to a conflict which is almost in its third year, and what's more these talks of continued after they were due to end. Osamu get chewers and journalists based in Addis Ababa hello Zamyla. Hello, good morning. Very good morning to you. Thank you for joining us on monocle 24. Just explain to us if you would please about the nature of the circumstances of these talks, please. Well, it's up watching its second year as of tomorrow. It's going to be second year. The TPLF forces and the Ethiopian government have been fighting for the last two years, affecting millions of Ethiopians that have become displaced. And once again, as I've said before, a famine is becoming a reality in this country. There is also the issue of infrastructure that has been destroyed across the country really destroying one of the fastest economies in the continent. And that's where we are at the moment. So just tell us about what's happening with these talks. They're not happening in Ethiopia, are they? They're happening in South Africa. They've been held since last week. The head of the discussion president oba sanjo is due to give a press conference this afternoon trying to update us what's exactly going on. And people remain hopeful, but there's an issue of lack of compromise or mistrust between both sides that will make it difficult to bring this conflict to a conclusion. It is quite a surprise because it's not long ago that a ceasefire was broken and there was very little indication that there was any appetite on either the side of the Ethiopian government or the rebels in tigray to actually come to the table. So there must be some hopeful signs from what is going on, not least because the talks were supposed to finish what a couple of days ago and they're still going. But the prime minister abiy Ahmed has been saying that there has been lots of pressure in terms of the U.S. Biden administration, EU and other organizations that are involved in Ethiopia trying to bring this to a conclusion, including the UN agencies that have been saying that many people are due to die unless there is a humanitarian corridor that needs to be opened. And not just in tigray, but are far and amhara where millions are facing famine for the, I mean, once again, so that he has been the utopian government as well as the TPLF has been under pressure to try to bring this to an end. But they took on government has been saying that Western countries have put so much pressure in terms of dealing with what the Ethiopian government has been saying is a terrorist organization, which is the TPLF according to the Ethiopian government. What is the feeling to him? When you're talking about the Ethiopian government claiming that it is under pressure. But is getting external forces in to try to help broker a deal here. I mean, this is the South African involvement here. We have the African Union actually leading the talks here. There is a dire need, isn't there four external influences to come in and say, right, you must now talk, sort this out. Well, they took an government has been saying that it's almost like asking the U.S. government, the former U.S. government, the George W. Bush government, to try to sit down with the Taliban and come with some kind of compromise. They've been saying that they're dealing with the terrorist organization, which they say is the TPLF. So it's been really, really difficult. With this kind of conversations and accusations and counter accusations going back and forth between TP 11 and the Ethiopian government, there is expected to be little success in terms of the peace discussion in South Africa. But again, people remain hopeful Ethiopia is an important country. It has a population of close to a 120 million people. Nobody wants Ethiopia to fail, especially the EU that has been really trying to stop migration from heading from Ethiopia and other African countries to their own soil. So they don't want the problem of Ethiopia to become capital Addis. When you are wondering where on the streets of the Ethiopian capital, is there a sense that the country is at war? But you can tell in terms of inflation in terms of prices going up in a Stan Lee, you see displaced people in many, many streets of Adi sababa, you have a sense that the country is going through a transition and which is the war that's been going on in the last two years. But people have been impacted and many people are suffering in silence. And we are what two days away from the second anniversary I was at the fourth of November 2020 when this began, is there any sense about how long worth a conflict to wind down any time soon? How long it would take Ethiopia to recover from all this? Well, that's for experts to make a determination. But I hope Ethiopians will find the piece that they need to move forward. But again, the scar of the conflict will be with Ethiopians many, many years to come. And that's the such a conflict that has been the deadliest in the world. And are you, is there any suggestion that when these talks finish that there will be another round? Well, we don't know. We are hoping to hear from president former president oba sanjo. And we move forward. But I mean, again, Ethiopia's are beginning to be, they've been tired of conflicts that we've been tired as a human being. I've been tired of hearing horrors, the horrors of this war. And I hope I hope there won't be any more discussion in this conflict will suddenly and because again, the impact on the ground is invisible to much of the world. And I hope people like myself and my colleagues will give the victims the kind of voice and reason that they need to move forward. Thank you so much for joining us on monocle 24. The time is nudging 7 29 here in London. In a moment, we'll examine the issue of sportswashing and worse as Qatar readies itself for the World Cup.

"Yes, but before you talk about that, I do need to mention one thing. There is a difference between PC game pass and Xbox game pass. All right. What is that? Even if you get the Xbox game pass ultimate. Doesn't mean you can put all of your Xbox games on your PC. You can play some of those games. Yes, your PC may come with an Xbox app, but it doesn't get to play all of the Xbox games. However, if you have an Xbox and you have the games on the Xbox, like Sean said, you can stream your Xbox games to your PC and play them on the PC, but if you want them locally installed on your PC, there's that whole different catalog of games that you can buy. All right, the other game that was announced was Spider-Man remastered. Oh yeah. Everybody loves everybody loves the Spider-Man games. I have not personally played any of them. Oh my gosh, they're so good. I have a coworker that swears up and down by the Spider-Man games. It's crazy because so the original Spider-Man, the latest one or whatever that came out for the PlayStation, came out right around the time that my family went to New York City. And we walked around Manhattan, we walked around to different parks and things like that. In the game, in the actual Spider-Man game, I could actually go and visit those parks. It was real. I could actually see those parks. That is in the game. Right. It was a real rendition of Manhattan. So it's really good game. This one is available on steam and the Epic Games store and it has some mods in there where you can actually play a Stan Lee, which is it's kind of cool because they have a video up on YouTube. If you do a search for Stan Lee with animation, Spider-Man mod, you'll be able to check out the video there and it's like you're watching it and the graphics are so good in these games now. It looked like Stan Lee was standing right in front of you. Stan Lee as Spider-Man. I mean, that's really, really cool. Yeah, it is. All right, we're going to take another quick break. We come back.

"So you've got to have somebody who is comfortable with being off the ball and doesn't feel like they have to have that basketball. While still being able to give you when LeBron is out, the production that you need from the position. That is a fine line to walk. And so far, the Lakers have had two tries on it. They have not found that guy. First with Dennis schroder now with Russell Westbrook. So it would be interesting to see how they approach the position this off season. I just want to address something as well. Somebody mentioned a little brahm was the worst offender by far on the Lakers last season, but per the analytics. I have this first energy, my dear Friends has synergy sports, technology, whatever. LeBron was not the worst defender on the Lakers. As a matter of in terms of points where possession allowed as a matter of fact, it was technically it was Stan Lee and then Ross. But in Stanley's defense, he was guarding one of the perimeter players more often than not. But first energy in terms of points where possession allowed it was Ross. Then mellow, brussel mellow. Yeah. That's anti HTG. He was supposed to be their perimeter defender. Oh, Shakira Reddick says at least Russ has some killer instinct. LeBron has zero. He doesn't know how to kick a team when they're down. I mean, I would argue Russ isn't going to get a team down. I mean, look, is Russ more of kind of the, I'm going to take the ball and I'm going to I'm going to drive to the paint and I'm going to dunk on you, and I'm going to score myself when the game is on the line. Probably. I mean, I think my favorite rust play of the season though, ironically, was rush driving to the basket in Dallas and kicking out to Austin Reeves for three. That was, I thought, probably there were a few that don't come Gobert was fantastic too, but that was probably my favorite rust play, but to say it doesn't have killer instinct. I think that just goes back to a bigger discussion about LeBron and this concept of what killer instinct is and what we expect out of a star player, we saw Jordan. We saw Kobe, who were always the guys taking that to the shots. That's not really how LeBron is wired. His version of how he attacks a game, or closes a game, it's just different than what we see from other star players, particularly those star, like two guards that we've seen, again, we saw Kobe for 20 years here. But LeBron is more the guy that wants to make the right pass in crunch time. And then trust in his teammates, and I'm not saying one's better than the other or one is more masculine or whatever. It's just a different approach. And LeBron gets a lot of flack for that. Sometimes I think he should be more aggressive and attack, but other times you see what he does. He makes the right basketball play and it can pay off. So I've never been one to argue that LeBron is somehow lax killer instinct or lacks aggressiveness or something like that. Because that's the path that he chooses to walk..

You are not you are not taking the great power comes great responsibility motto to heart. And shame on you. I know. I'm cutting you off now. No. Look at me. Look at me I'm the host now. What is this? This chair doesn't feel as good anymore. No, it's like I did. I did almost every crime, and then I still had like 30 to do at the end of the game. And so it was one of those things where it was like a grind that didn't feel as fun. For the rest of the list is really great. And then miles Morales, I think that list is really good, but then you have to do a new game plus run. And it's a great story and I didn't mind replying, but I did that run to get the platinum. I did not do that run because I wanted to at that moment in time do the run. But it was like I skipped every cutscene and I just blasted through the game as fast as I could. And then with rift apart, I think it's overall a really great list except for the one or two like you were saying that don't track. Because so much of that game does track what you do and maybe it's been updated forgive me. I have not looked, but they weren't doing that at launch window time. And so it was good luck if you got the bears, good luck if you got the crystals. And obviously this is a very small thing. We're not saying it's a terrible game now, but in terms of a trophy list they got so much right and so to have those like one or two that aren't great. Is a bit of a bummer. It's the same thing for like, I think God of War's list is pretty fantastic. But if you don't want to have to go chase down every Raven, I can see why that would be annoying for you to do after you've done this amazing quest. I'm so glad you brought that up because I literally looked at the God of War trophies yesterday and more people have beaten all 9 of the valkyries and colluding the Valkyrie queen than have found all of Odin's ravens. Odin's ravens collection is literally the least percentage of troph collective minus the platinum obviously because you have to get that one to get that one. But yeah. I think because that game so much of it ends as a similar with miles Morales and Spider-Man and rift apart. So many of them, I think, integrate the side stuff in a way that is interesting to want to pursue, but the ravens definitely are sort of like, oh, well, I'm just going to go hit these ravens because I know it's a thing I need to achieve. Is it how it feels? But anyway, those are just a few of the lists off the top of my head that I think have been really good from PlayStation recently and show progression in the space I guess to show what people can do from them, but Jade also with you like, are there any particular recent lists that you've really loved or hated? Yeah, so I mean, I already mentioned guardians. I loved guardians for their platinum list. Some of them is literally collecting collectibles, but it's like they don't require you to collect every single collectible. It's like 65% of all the collectibles on one page because there's multiple pages of collectibles. And I thought that was a really cool way to do it. And I was one of the trophies I missed on my first playthrough because when I got to nowhere, I didn't go to the collectors museum where there is like 40 collectibles and I'd probably like 20. But there are so many collectibles in the collectors museum. And I just totally missed that part and my first playthrough somehow. And so when I went through a second time to get the platinum, I was like, I was like, oh, this is so cool. They've got like Stan Lee's glasses and comic books and all these other really cool lore things that I was like, I really love this because I wouldn't have seen this if I didn't have to come back here and look for this for the platinum. And guardians is a very achievable platinum. There's nothing that's really difficult. I would say about any of the trophies, maybe some of figuring out how to do some of the very specific combos with one of the other guardians because you have to do specific things against specific enemies in certain areas. I think my final trophy was called group canal, which I love puns and trophies. Puns or trophies need to be almost every trophy. But you have to use groot's special command, not one of his abilities that are mapped, but like you have to trigger a special command against this very specific enemy called a charger that you see like once or twice. And so if you miss it on that fight, you have to come back through and replay that chapter. Thankfully, guardians has chapter select, so it's not that big of a hassle, but yes, it is something that it's easy to miss and some people will miss. One of that I really liked was life is strange, true colors. This platinum trophy was such a joy to hunt down over the tail end of last year because all the collectibles added to the story. They gave context. They played cutscenes. They gave like voices in your head of sensing like memories and feelings from this object that were recorded into it and it feeds into the lore. It builds upon Alex's character. It is so well done. And it was such a joy going through and getting the platinum trophy for life is strange to tell you the story was amazing. I really love the character development in this game. The collectibles were not hard to find. You did have to look for them. But looking at the trophy list, you can thankfully PlayStation has where you can just track 5 trophies at once. And it's like, okay, each chapter is like, okay, I need to find a check. Okay, I need to find a camera. Okay, I need to find a coin. And so I know what I'm looking for because the trophies tell you what they are. They're not hidden trophies. And it doesn't like looking at throats, doesn't tell you what they what they get when you find them, it just tells you, hey, this is the object you should be looking for in chapter one. You should be looking for these three objects because they're going to give you more story. They're going to give you a better understanding of what's happening in this town as you've moved into this town. So yeah, that's really great. And then there's always the difficulty trophies like, say, seafood, completing the game under 25. That's going to be a little tough for people who aren't perfect at their dodges and blocks or Paris. I will never do that. Like I said, I'm pretty close to it..

"To Bloomberg daybreak Europe live from London this hour and European equity markets then half an hour into their craving day trading day to the upside up by half a percent the FTSE 100 a bit of a lag guard actually and up by only one tenth of a percent but still in the green the cat can roll up 6 cents and the zebra Dax in Germany up by half a percent the ibex and the FTSE mid both making decent games as well And we've seen a bit of a turnaround in U.S. futures They were negative in the earlier part of the trading session through the Asian trading day parts of that we saw U.S. futures in negative territory but now to the upside E minis and Dow futures and NASDAQ futures all up by around two tenths of 1% In terms of the sectors in focus here in Europe there are not many sectors in negative territory only two in fact personal consumer discretionary grocery stores they move to the downside telecoms to the downside But elsewhere we see basic resources higher up by 1.1% that is the biggest performing sector or best performing sector in today's session along with chemicals and construction and materials making decent gains So we see most of the upside for European equity markets are a day after we saw really strong gains for European stocks and all of that was because of an expectation of a pullback in geopolitical tension That meant that we saw stocks go higher We also saw commodities come down in our unwinding of some of the geopolitical premium perhaps in commodity prices Well some of that being backtracked today So we see oil prices going higher once again 94 42 up by 1% 1.2% in fact on the oil price this morning but that's not being reflected in a sort of risk off move in other assets We see demand coming through though four bonds as we head towards the FOMC meeting minutes in the United States and also retail sales out of the U.S. the dollar is a little weaker in keeping with some weakness in the U.S. yield story then so the dollar down around two tenths of 1% and we see the eurogame we see the pound gain in its place One 35 58 is where we trade on Sterling That is a look at where we are on the markets right now Let's get to our wider top stories and here's the endgames And a good morning and thank you U.S. president Joe Biden says the threat of a Russian invasion of Ukraine still remains He is also warning that Russia's claims that it's pulling back troops from the border with Ukraine are not verified Bloomberg's Ed Baxter reports President Biden says so far intelligence is not showing it And the fact remains right now Russia has more than a 150,000 troops and circling Ukraine and Belarus and along Ukraine's border An invasion remains distinctly possible Biden says if that happens Russia will be held responsible globally for death and destruction He says sanction packages are in place and that the overriding issue that governments have is the right to plot their own destinies In San Francisco I met Baxter Bloomberg daybreak Europe Now we'll get the minutes from the fed's last meeting today with the split over interest rate heights in focus Bloomberg's Michael McKee tells us what to expect Heightened fed concern about inflation led to a sell off in bonds when the last minute were released A repeat is possible Investors want to know just how worried that central bankers were at their last meeting when they suggested it was almost time to raise interest rates In particular how far and how fast did they anticipate moving Bond investors in particular will be looking for any details on when and how fed officials anticipate shrinking their balance sheet Kansas City fed president Esther George recently warned the process could be rocky for the markets Like on the key Bloomberg daybreak Europe And in corporate news and one of the most read stories on the terminal as U.S. authorities investigate block traders at firms including Morgan Stanley Bloomberg has been told one of the bank's top equities executives is under scrutiny sources say par one passe who ran morgen Stan Lee's U.S. equities syndicate desk is among individuals who whose activities are being looked at Morgan Stanley is at the center of a U.S. probe

2700 journalists and analysts in more than 120 countries amne gars this is Bloomberg Anna Thanks very much Leanne Let's pick up on the Ukraine latest NATO defense ministers are holding a meeting in Brussels today and the Russian troops build up on Ukraine's borders will be at the top of the agenda of course Bloomberg's European correspondent Maria tadeo is on the ground to cover the developments and she joins us now Maria good morning So president Putin of Russia pointing to deescalation but the west is looking for proof and it hasn't seen it yet So where do we go next Well Anna today European defense ministers and NATO ministers were media here in Brussels They will meet in a few hours with the secretary general and would be all say on the record but also very much behind the scenes is that they want to see proof of this So far what we have is a video that's filmed recorded and released by the Russian defense minister that shows tanks moving away but they would argue we want to see where they're going where this video was filmed and on the ground on a map to see where these twisters are stationed at this point So a lot of disappoint to yes optimism that we're still talking and diplomacy still has a way forward but there is still also a lot of concerns particularly when you see Eastern European officials who will tell you we know Russia well we know their tactics they say they do aid but then in reality is happening or is to be then we will feel very unsure And what is Russia saying at this point So you talk there about what Russia has said their day doing and then how the west is looking for proof of that What is Russia saying about its own security concerns Well you know to me it was very interesting and I yesterday when Vladimir Putin with all of shots in a press conference in Moscow he said and he was asked a very direct question by the way do you want to see a war in Europe and we still avoid a war in Europe And he said I don't want it I don't want to see it in our generation doesn't want to see it Having said that Russia has seen this expansion from NATO into the east that was not the case 30 years ago And this is still a concern for us So the market is actually very relieved perhaps optimistic that there's a resolution to this But if you look at the actual content and the demands that Russia is putting forward when it comes to Ukraine on joining NATO when it comes to security and Eastern European soil on a broader perspective when it comes to the global security deal that they're aiming for quoting also in many ways China where they haven't actually moved and in particular and this is where it could get very tense On eastern Ukraine in particular Vladimir Putin has a huge pressure to recognize this region and that could really create pensions especially on the diplomatic way Maria thank you very much but in both European correspondent Maria today with the latest on the geopolitics between Russia and the west we continue to watch that story of course Back to the corporate news flow and Airbnb beat revenue and profit estimates in the fourth quarter bucking a resurgent wave of COVID-19 infections and heading

"Exactly. Wow. And they were the things that pre they were the instruments that foresaw the default of Lehman Brothers and bear Stearns and the like. So how does the bond market get fixed? Because it sounds like it's a broken market right now. I mean, it still works, how it's meant to work, but in terms of earning a return, if all bonds are essentially negative yielding on a real basis on a real basis. And we know some people have to buy them. Yes. Because they're mandated to. But essentially, it is a broken system. It's a fear system that doesn't make logical sense. Peter, I don't know how it gets fixed if they do not let yields go to their natural level. Now, that natural level is open for debate. But Stanley druckenmiller feels that the natural level for U.S. ten year treasuries would be four and a half percent. Again, it's trading at 1.5% right now. There's other people that argue that the fed is not impacting the shape of the yield curve. And I just say, come on, guys. There's an elephant in the room that was purchasing a $120 billion worth of bonds a month. A month. Tell me that's not impacting the fed. Excuse me, the yield curve. And if someone says it isn't, I think that you've never traded markets before. There's Bond bulls out there that are swear that swear that it hasn't impacted the yield curve and I'll just go guys, take your heads out of your out of the sand because supply and demand is what it is. And that's what sets the price of bonds. Okay, sorry. What's stopping bonds for each their natural rate of four and a half percent? Again, fed in the market buying a 120 billion of it per month. Right. That's just the biggest buyer out there by far, is in the market. And when you're a buyer, you're soaking up sellers, meaning the way I yield rises Peter is the price goes down. And when the price of the bond goes down to reach an equilibrium level, the yield on the Bond gets adjusted accordingly. So as the price goes down, the yield goes up. And we'll do a quick Bond math here. If a ten year bond were to move from one and a half percent to four and a half percent, where Stan Lee drug and Miller thinks it should trade. The price or principal trading value of the bond would drop by over 25%.

"I've never, I've never read any comics. What are their names? So I mean, I don't want to talk. I don't want to spoil. I want to spoil the post credit singers. Okay. I'll just say that they're one two of these characters are more cosmic minded characters. Again, never heard of them. One of the characters is a British superhero who, again, I heard of never read any of the comments. Again, we have extended beyond my knowledge. And this is another problem I think for the MCU is that they are starting to get into very much like third and fourth tier characters. In the distant realms of my memory, sunny, 'cause I was a marvel kid, not a D.C. kid. There was a giant figure who kind of loomed over everything he was bald. And I don't know what he was. He was the watcher of the world. Yeah. Did you show up in the credits? Because I've been waiting for the watcher to show up someday. The watcher. So the watcher has been in the series that has been on Disney+ called what if, what if this series of alternates, history marvel, it's essentially essentially asked what if something was different than the Marvel Universe. So the first episode is what if Peggy Carter became captain American instead of Steve Rogers, right? And that tells the story of what would have happened if so the watcher is in all of those. I'll put it that way. All right, so my question to you, sunny, is it a good thing for movies that Stan Lee and Jack Kirby invaded cinema? Because it is a whole different universe of cinema. It's going. It's like the Big Bang happened when Iron Man came out. And it's just it's an expanding universe and it's getting bigger and it swallowing things. Is it to the bad or the good of movie making? That's a hard question to answer. I mean, look, here's I will say objectively, objectively speaking, the Marvel Cinematic Universe is the most successful and most popular franchise that has ever been made ever. More popular than Star Wars more popular than James Bond. It is the most popular and most successful franchise in the history of the world. You have to give a lot of credit to Kevin feige who is the producer who kind of spearheaded all of this. And you have to give a lot of credit to the filmmakers that they have been able to rattle off such a string of both frankly confident artistically, even the marvel movies I didn't like. I am happy to recognize our generally speaking successful pieces of storytelling. And this is the real problem with eternals. That is just not a very good piece of storytelling. I mean, there are individual actors who do very good job. I really like Kumail Nanjiani in this as king go is the character he plays he's very funny. He's got a valet at human valet called carroon, who, again, it's like kind of classic marvel comedy, very funny. There's the guys who plays Gilgamesh. His name is donley. Again, very funny. He plays Gilgamesh as kind of a happy warrior type. And they're a little individual things in this movie that worked and the inner very good. But the thing is a whole doesn't work. And that is unusual for a marvel movie. I mean, they have been very, very good at making discrete impressive pieces of storytelling that have all worked. Is this good for cinema as a whole? I mean, look, if you ask theater owners, they'll tell you what's good because you know what the movie you have done. They've brought a lot of people into the theaters. The marvel movies have been extremely successful. You can't argue with their business. Is it good for cinema as an art form? I think not probably. I mean, these are better thought of as television episodes, right? This is the 26th episode of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It's not really a movie. These are all they're so connected and they're so they kind of changed how people watch movies. Just one small anecdote when people got done watching dune when dunes stopped when the movie stopped. And the credits started. People sat around in theaters waiting for a post credits scene and were angry when they didn't get one. And that is the kind of thing that marvel. It is trained people to watch movies in a different way. And not necessarily a better way. We are, I want to return to this. I may devote an hour and get Schroeder to call in as well. Because I love that I want to think about. I need someone to tell me the scope of the marvel meteor on movie making. Because it's enormous. And I don't know if it's going to kill all the dinosaurs or launch a new age. But we know now that the eternals is not necessary. Sunny bunch on Twitter. The movie master official movie, we might send him some extra airline miles for this week's presentation. Sunny botch also across the movie aisle and the bulwark ghost in the movie is two podcasts.

"What a okay. This is not blood. you know what we're looking for. I have given into this. You're absolutely right. Because i'm just yeah we gave up. We just gave up on the one hand. I'm looking forward to what. Andy circus may bring to this. And looking forward to what woody harrelson. He's directing the fucking movie right forgotten. And i'm looking forward to woody harrelson just being over the top ridiculous like i kinda wanted it. That might be good. I wanted to be like a ridiculous like eighties movie. That's you know it's cheesy. It's bad it's goofy. But you're there for the rummy bare bones were just looking for entertainment. Were not let's for faithfulness to the source material. Were not looking for faithfulness to tone or or even using storylines or anything interesting from the actual proper forever to entertainment. It'll probably be at least somewhat that. However this is what i am looking for to. 'cause there has been They've talked about some of the producers director. Whatever that there will be an emcee a crossover with the mc you that there. There is some rumors some there were like. We will eventually cross over at spiderman. We know there's going to be multi-diverse wacky nece in spiderman. No way home. Tom holland recently posted an instagram photo of himself. Not tom tom hardy. Sorry tom hardy posted a photo. He was wearing a spiderman no way home cast and crew hat and they said that in this movie is what are the odds that there's some spiderman shit going on in this movie that we will see spiderman that they are tying. This is going to be the beginning of tying it to the poll. Tom holland out of the you into the sony verse. Do you think we'll see any of that in this movie. That's what i'm watching for. You might see it but it won't make any sense or people who like probably not. Yeah i think. I mean i agree. I mean they already hinted at that moebius trailer that vulture chemo's in there and as opposed this upcoming spiderman movie might be the last one where we see him in the. Mc you other than maybe like one others mainly doctor strange very says up again in the doctor strange sequel venom. This version of venom doesn't do a lot for me. I do kind of like the angle though. If you're going to like go with it. And andy circuses obviously different direction than the first one make it like the frickin eighties and make it. Less weirdly is gonna is it rated r. Now it's pg thirteen it is. He should do rated r. venom. But they probably don't wanna cut the box office with our. But i mean they're they're hinting of possibility of spiderman crossover And that's what i guess. I wanna see. I couldn't hurt you know it's just tough to do. I mean even when you do a spiderman. Crossover like again expire mentioned. Be crossing over. It should have been should have been there to me. That's it's just such a core part of that character also rumor and talks of how they want to jump start their sinister six movie sony that they still wanna make the wanting us like the villains. We're going to see in spiderman no way home and then use well. The in some of them started. They all started over there. That could be crazy. You know sony sony. Doing anything doesn't make me live. They still don't have made the best fighter bad movies i liked into the spider verse allies..

"With ron lim and i like it because there's a lot of stories even if the premise is simple it's still you can drive yourself crazy sort of you know coming up with with with the story points and the overall summary and and pitching it to an editor trapped. The ball was a thing it. I just came to me. I wrote it up as like a. You know a half page page. And i sent it to howard mackie and he bought it right away and it was just very kind of you know it ended up. Obviously you're writing a an eighty page story. It's going to have all sorts of twists and turns but the sort of elegant jailbreak at the supervillain prison with an added ticket literal. Ticking time bomb In the background So i love the deadly foes spiderman as an editor. I loved working with the tom. Falco and ron friends during their run with jammed mattis and salvi osama i was Which is not You know take away from anybody else. But those those people were were really fun to work with working with fabian hissy as and mark bagley on launching. New warriors was You know there was a book that everybody made fun of you know there was. There was an internal marble Satirical ed done about the new warriors with all these kind of second-string with a second-string team characters and whoever wrote the river wrote the you know the the the spoof how said the tagline was marvel. Comics if you didn't buy them we couldn't print them. It's something you had. You had low low expectations for new warriors and then which is a launch it superseded those obviously with With i mean because it had some success right not a lot of success and fabian. And i would butt heads all the time On stories but it ended up making i think for solid and and you know and and interesting and not run of the mill stories that really got into character and and You know but also instinct on the action. It you know that was in a way writing you take spiderman. It's nice if you make if you put out good stories but at a certain way spiderman is a certain invulnerability that it has but when you take something like new warriors overnight or or or or cloak and dagger things like that that people you know.

"Ridley is the Academy Award winning screenwriter for serious films like 12 Years, a slave, But he's also into comic books, both as a reader and a writer. He created the American Way back in 2006, as well as its sequel. And now he's putting his own spin on the heroes of the DC Universe really has a couple of comic book projects coming out the five parts Syriza, the other history of the DC universe, which looks at historical events and alternate story lines for DC heroes like Superman and Black Lightning. Book to comes out later this month and out today is the first issue of Ridley's future state. The next Batman, which has a black character, Tim Fox, taking over as the mega rich caped crusader, following the apparent death of Bruce Wayne. John Ridley joins me now welcome. Thank you very much. Thanks for having me how you holding up. Oh, you know what I'm holding up? How about you? I'm blessed despite myself, So I'm good, Thanks. That's a good way to put it in spite of myself. That is the same way with me. Well, this new Batman. He's a character that really seems to be right on time for some because of the moment we're in, and probably about time for others who've been waiting to see themselves in superheroes. Was that your intention? Well, you know, that's that's really good question. I think someone's yes and no. I mean, I think very unfortunately, a lot of my work Has always been the perfect work for in perfect moments. I'm very thankful for the lot of work that I've done. Red tails, 12 years Gorilla American crime, but it feels like it's always been. You know, people who have asked that same questions like Wow, How does it feel to have this work coming? At this very wrong moment, and, unfortunately, seems like these moments are becoming more and more raw. Some of that is because we're all of us are becoming just so much more aware of these things that are happening. On a cycle, but I would be equally is happy of some of this work came out, and it just stood on its own. Tim Fox, the new Batman is the son of Lucious Fox, a character that that will be familiar. Even a casual reader of Batman or someone who's seen Morgan Freeman play the character in the most recent Batman films. Tell us more about that story line. What I wanted to Nexus this. This new Batman around was family and very grounded issues. Soto have a young man who is the son who went away. Why did he go away? What were those stress points? With his family What it had been doing all of these years. Why very particularly did he want or need to become Batman? You know, he has a brother was bat win. Okay, so this story is told. And, yes, you know, Luke could become Batman. But for me, you know, Tim, he was there, but at the same time, there's an opportunity to really Get into the specificity of this character. And for me as a writer at this point, my life specificity matters real motivations, even for a nun, real character, they matter. Specificity it matters. It's also what makes stories stick with us that specificity because in that specificity we often see ourselves. Well, yeah, I mean, absolutely. I mean for me, you know, at this point, it's not just writing what I hope is a really terrific character with Tim, but it's the entire Fox family. You know, I'm a dad now I'm on my husband now. I have kids who are round Tim's age and to be able to say, You know what? How does Tim's decision fact this entire family that's what really excites me at this point is that it's not just about Batman. It's about this family and it's about a family of color, and it's about a family of color. We're now about the richest people on the planet. So what are all these things? And what are we saying? And what are we saying about identity and responsibility and privilege that are unique to The bat world but aren't necessarily unique to the world, but also on things that we necessarily unpack, often on black family. It has a different responsibility of black family. It's going to be looked at differently. A black family that has means but do those means insulate them elevate them protect them in the same way Bruce Wayne was Mm hmm. I want to ask you about something. We should mention that That's some diehard comic book. Fans have pointed out that Stan Lee created a black Batman for his comic book series. Just Imagine What's the difference between the two? To me, and I don't say this again stand or for my writing. Um, but their people, for example, and I think this may be a better way of saying it will say, Oh, hey, you're writing black Batman, and then they're excited about it. They're like, Well, that's really, really cool. And I said, Well, I'm not writing black Batman. I'm writing a Batman, and he happens to be black, but more importantly, he is Tim Fox and his version of Batman. Is gonna be completely different if it was his brother war. If his sister became a bad person, it has to be specific. There's a theme with your work here. You're also involved in the other history of the DC universe. Part one of that Syriza came out. In November, and the Syriza elevates a number of characters like Black lightning. They're not the main superheroes we're used to seeing in the spotlight..

Why not Fandom? The Random Dude Josh

"Josh what is your Phantom five all right so we're GONNA kick this off with just indie comics in general and the reason why I've selected. That is one. We don't have to worry about continuity within Deco X. because any book it's creating its own universe so what about like the walking dead that had what three hundred ish episodes or issues that was released. I mean they create their own continuity right the the do they do so. But if you compare it to say and I'm going to reference the big to DC and marvel where there's always continuity issues across the board and you don't necessarily have to do that Just some of the books that I've been geeking out over lately Morgan's organs. Which did you ever watch the movie inside out? Yes yeah the Pixar movie about all the all the emotions. Yes so that taking that concept. Except it's the organs within Morgan. They have their own personality. Now I will note. This is not necessarily a kid from the book. While you have Brian the brain and pepe the I'll I'll just let your mind. Yeah another a couple of easy to it yes exactly yes But it's it's hilarious absolutely hilarious. You've got Franklin and ghost who you know these two characters again out so much kid-friendly one but The Creator who has created this universe. Gary Gun has these amazing characters with amazing writing and with this universe. He's also created the war war coins combat UNICORNS for higher and that's awesome combat UNICORNS for higher. I mean who doesn't want fighting UNICORNS and the fact that he's got all these books. Yeah he's he's well all these together so it's fantastic but he's kind of his own comic universe with this he has and it. It's absolutely amazing. Absolutely amazing at you know. There's their studios like upshots studios. Who have just recently come out with a whole new line of books. And it's not your stereotypical Superhero Bucks. So so if somebody is used to reading the stereotypical superhero books now. What would be a good indicator comic for them to bridge them over into the world of India because Indy Comics are great? Because there's no one telling you what you can and can't have but that also means that there are things that people who've who've just read the big two publishers. Their entire lives are not going to be prepared for to see on the on the pages of their comic book. Is there something that you would recommend? Jump from Marvel and DC. I mean one of the big ones just comes to mind spun off yeah the Todd McFarlane Yep which his kickstarter I don't know if you've noticed He's doing a kickstarter right. Now for the seven inch figure like our revised version of what he made back in ninety five in the first two days made over a million dollars on kickstarter. It's kind of Nice to have the celebrity that todd McFarlane has to promote things like that. Yeah well instead of going to retailers for this he's making this specifically for the consumer so some years ago I was able to ask Stan Lee in. He would work with a modern artist. What artist would he want to write the story for Spiderman for asked Specifically Spiderman? Because that's right right now and his response was todd McFarlane so so I mean yeah it was a Stanley Todd McFarlane story would probably be kinda crazy but the yeah but I mean just those sorts of things but I guess going back to the question on a bloodshot by which I mean. They're just released. The movie with Vin diesel playing and because of the current cove nineteen lockdown. They made it available online. So the studio upshot. They put all their comics online They've got one where it's called the resistance which really made things real because a virus play the earth and out of it came people with superpowers. Signed me in little ironic. Well are you saying that? Are you breaking some news here? That people are getting superpowers from this. I'm guessing not but I can neither confirm nor deny this all

"Had personal problems. And there was a sense of continuity in time when you read a superman comic. So we might be battling some villain in April. And then in may they made no reference to the fight that he had the month. Earlier marvel always talked about what happened before it was continuously with stories and it had com. Complexion and texture and nuance. And sometimes the characters weren't always happy and in DC, the colors were brighter. Everybody was always happy. And it just seemed more. I started to say cartoonish Travolta, pulls cartoonish, but it was more cartoonish and almost everybody I know who red DC once they were exposed to moral though, longer red red DC. A few years ago. I was in an office having a meeting and on the table was a big book of leave work, and I'm leafing through it leafing through it in the guys watching me, and he called me. And I was so into the book, I didn't even get up. And he said Larry excuse me. Oh, I'm sorry. I told him what a big fan, I was Stanley, and marvel comics he says really he says when I'm a good friend of Stanley. And I said, well, you tell him I think he's an amazing man who's really really entertain the world. And he said I will. And the next thing, you know, I got in the mail a big poster of Spiderman swinging through New York and assigned by Stanley to Larry from Stanley, and I have it on the living room in my house. Stanley dead at the age of ninety five. I thought he's never going to die. Yours made a cameo when all of its films. He looked good sounded good. Now. I hear they filmed his coming cameo.

But one author says that now they're just regular old monopolies from American public media. This is marketplace tech demystifying the digital economy. I'm Molly would. Part of the reason there's a backlash against big tech. These days is because some of these companies are so big they're big in terms of users. See Facebook's two billion, plus big valuation, Amazon and apple have both topped a trillion dollars and big in market share more than ninety percent of all web searches happen on Google. The US is taking baby steps toward possible. Regulation Europe is taking more like Paul Bunyan's is steps, but critics argue these companies should have been slowed down long ago. Tim Wu is a Columbia law. Professor and author of the new book the curse of bigness antitrust in new gilded age. He says tech companies in particular were allowed to grow too. Big too fast. They're kind of like an overgrown baby that's still in its waddling close in its crib being protected from the outside world. They have a series of laws that protect tech industry in ways that other industries aren't protected, and they're also unregulated. Unlike let's say telephone industry or banks and that gives vantage as well. Well, you talk about the failure of regular. Leaders to realize that say Instagram was a competitor to Facebook. And so I wonder how much of that was like you said a lack of a regulatory will and ongoing swatting if he will or if it was actually just a misunderstanding of the technology and the potential I think a little bit of both. So I was in government during the campaigns where Facebook bought up much major competitors. Google bought up, frankly, hundreds of companies, and in government, people didn't understand the technology at all the business model giving stuff away for free competing for attention losing money for many years in order to make money later that all just didn't really compute with a bunch of people who were used to looking for kind of monopoly of the old fashioned, even Microsoft righty where you charged money or standard oil controlling an actual product. So that I think was all sort of confusing the other hand, I do think that this crib effect was still there. So new industry exciting. Thing. You know, they seemed full of really good people. So you know, why not just let them buy up all the rivals. Well, and how does this fit into say the FTC's starting to have conversations about trying to overhaul antitrust regulations for the digital age like is the Sherman act going to cut it? Or are they in fact, just normal old monopolies? I do think what a lot of people are realizing is you don't necessarily need a whole new law designed to deal with them. You just have to accept that their businesses. Maybe in some cases, you have to understand that they're interested in attention and not just money, but they turn attention into money. I think what we're learning is some of the older principles really should still apply a standard oil's basic method was to gain a monopoly by buying up all its most dangerous competitors. And that's exactly what Facebook did. So I'm in the school that suggests the old principles which call for the break-up of big monopolies have not gone out of date. Tim Wu is author of the new book the curse of bigness antitrust in the new gilded age that book it's available today. We had a much longer. Sation with Tim on the make me smart podcast. You can find that on apple podcasts or wherever you get your pods. And now for some related links. I rest in peace, STAN Lee who brought us so many things, including of course, that Connick line from Spiderman with great power comes great responsibility. Which of course, is exactly what we're talking about. Now on Monday in Paris, France, and some US tech companies put out a declaration calling for more regulation of the internet for cyber security privacy and to slow down the spread of misinformation. The United States is not currently listed as a supporter of the Paris. Call for trust insecurity in cyberspace, among US, tech companies Facebook, Cisco, Microsoft, Salesforce and Google did sign on. It's actually not dissimilar to something announced last week by Tim burners Lee, the inventor of the World Wide Web called the contract for the web Facebook and Google also signed onto that it's a set of principles around affordability access and privacy, and it'll be launched in full next may. Day. And sure at the moment, I know these things are mostly just big announcement. But they're important because this thing the internet the World Wide Web has changed keeps changing our lives, and at the same time it's susceptible to the same problems as anything that humans create and it's so big and profound and powerful that it will take a large and global effort to keep refining it and in case all of that is too high falutin end up in the cloud. The Washington Post has a very black mirror story out this week about a UK study on how driverless cars are going to change tourism, and nightlife and apparently become little mobile paid sex bubbles because also thing about humans is that there's not a single invention that we won't somehow start using for sex.

"Legend one interesting thing, which is maybe a way to lighten up this actor Armie hammer sent out a really interesting tweet in response to Armie hammer response to Stanley's death Armie hammer said so touched by all of the celebrities. Posting pictures of themselves with STAN Lee, no better way to commemorate an absolute legend than putting up a picture of yourself. I almost tweeted that exact thing today you serious. I got so tired of seeing my time. Time line. I was like Stanley died quickly. Let's all running find a picture of me with Stanley someone that's now deceased it's not really honoring them. It's saying look at me. I was with him before. It's it always seems odd to me when when people do that, and the more you see it on social media now, it's almost a little revolting. And I almost tweeted it, and I was like, nah, someone at work will bitch, and someone will say that, you know, not whatever. So I didn't say that. But that's funny that he he sent that out. I like that sentiment because I too am tired of I think that's lame of him to have tweeted that because people that are posting their photos of him. Most of them knew him, the ones that I saw social media. I mean, of course, maybe there were randoms that saw him at a comic con or this or that or the other but celebrities that posted their photos of him, most of them had a story share a relationship that while and some of them worked with him. Yeah. I'm just talking about the pecker heads that. I know that. Walked up to him and took a picture. It just seems odd to me the more that I see it and I get your celebrating. And you wanna be a part of it. I understand the whole thing. But it does bother me view it like, wow, this guy touched so many lives. This guy matter to so many people that all of these people wanted to take their photo with him, you know, people process death differently. And I think for me because I've never I didn't know Stanley or any, you know, I loved his movies like anybody else. I love the marvel universe. But I don't know. It's the first thing that I thought in maybe it's just because of the saturation of social media. I'm feeling that way. Because there's all these people that are like look at me, look and meet with this person. And you see it over and over and something starting to bug me about it. You know, it could be a rational. I don't know. But I do understand his sentiment because I thought the same thing. Exact same thing hater.
