Loved Labours won: landslide in New Zealand

"This weekend New Zealand's Labour Party swept to a fairy-tale victory stunned. Prime Minister. Justin. The are dern beamed as a rapturous crowd applauded beginning her speech with a thankful molly reading. In. In tongue it Athena what? dern promised a big tent kind of administration. For every New Zealand has never been so important more than it has been now. We living in an increasingly polarized world a place where more and more people have lost the ability to see one. Another's point of view having come in for criticism during the campaign on failing to address housing shortages and poverty. She acknowledged there were difficulties ahead. Over the next three years. There is much to do. We will build back better from the covert crisis. Stronger. With an answer to the mini challenges New Zealand. Already faced. Challenges or no the scale of the win came as a surprise even to her supporters. The easiest way of describing is that it was unparalleled in modern history. I wonder why it had Austrailia and correspondent say the Labor Party which has just endured dance policy one, forty, nine percent of the and that was compared to nearly twenty seven percent for the main opposition, which is called the national policy, which is conservative that is the best result Labor's result for any policy since the fifties and it gives it a majority of seats in parliament, and that is the first time that any he's been. Able to govern on its own underneath. Zealand. System of proportional representation which has been in place since one, thousand, nine, hundred, sixty, they were winning in both provincial rural conservative strongholds, ondon rich city areas, and to give sense New Zealanders vote for both the preferred party and an MP on their ballots and labor top the preferred party votes in sixty eight of its seventy constituencies really astounding result for them and what was the the campaign like De Campaign was focused on pretty much only one subject which was the government's response to the coronavirus. It was really a referendum on how the government and I think in voters is particularly prime minister has responded to the virus that response was to shut down the borders, I to China, and then to the rest of the world and then to rally support. For, what was a very, very strict lockdown in New Zealand at the beginning of the pandemic and say, Bara brief surges pretty much. Succeeded I. Need Twenty Five people have died and that was really what the campaign focus on the fact that life has been able to return and roughly to normal people are eating out people cramming into restaurants and their normal numbers. Forty six thousand people watching rugby match against Australia, this weekend. So the campaign was very much focused on that response and the opposition kind of found it quite difficult. See Find Ground on which to oppose the government, and so the scale of that result then is just a reflection of how satisfied everyone has been with the response to the pandemic. That is the singular issue of its left remembering that before the pandemic hits. Labor a was looking the polls. The suggesting that Labor was on track to lose. This election would have been a one term government, which is not very common in New Zealand central a being. Overseas particularly, for the way that she responded to the Christ church terrorist attacks, they were much last year when these two mosques were attacked by a white supremacist and she was obviously hailed. The way she united New Zealand does after that and staunchly defended immigrants but adulation wasn't really reflected back at home until the pandemic has. So was this a vote for her or a vote for the Party and it's I think it's got to be with her and not a great deal to do with the Party and its policies. So it was a campaign that was thin on policy on both sides update from national and Labour but I think it was a set of referendum on the prime minister's response. To the coronavirus even historisches appointment submit that she's a very gifted communicator particularly in times of crisis and young people particularly look to her. She has a kind of unpretentious approachability that I think that a lot of Kiwis light and political analysts in New Zealand will say that it's very much a politics of personality though she wasn't always popular home as she was overseas. I, think that Kiwis do derive a kind of sense of pride from hug label standing as well. So in a way that has served her well at home. Speaking to damage he said that her brilliant lies in the way she plays into their sense of exceptionalism. In key, we always liked to think that set apart by more than their geography and they punch above that waits. But what about apart from the personality and crisis management and so on. What about sort of kitchen table politics? This is. Just. On the Labor government comes in for a lot of criticism because when she came to power in two thousand seventeen. Labor was making a lot of very lofty promises to do things like reduce child poverty it was going to end homelessness in New Zealand. It was going to build one hundred thousand affordable houses in ten years. Of generally make New Zealand to Faira Besser country and it's pretty much failed to deliver on every single one of those things. The Prime Minister's critics point out that almost counts of poverty and social inequality museum and actually heading quits. Houses are increasing at the moment in New Zealand increasing through the crisis. So this is a big big criticism of her detractors that she is a great at moving motivational speeches, but quite a poor Administra- certain hasn't actually got much done. So that might explain why this time around the world kind of such lofty promises it was rather more timid. But. She's still got a strong base of support is on the left who are GonNa be expecting her to do a lot more particularly now she's not in. She's she's not having to form a coalition particularly now that she can govern on her own and so to your mind the the big difference then between the first term and this coming second term is that she that Labour will be governing alone. Is the big difference with governing Elaine comes a lot more responsibility. There is still a chance that Labor form some kind of coalition with the Greens will they. They don't need. Them might be handy have degrees inside the government say they're not handling the sidelines said that could either be a formal coalition or a more informal arrangement in which the Greens folks with Labor early onset issues. So a much stronger position on a lot more pressure within this time around. But what about fulfilling all those promises in light of the economic situation? I mean new. Zealand certainly must have suffered economically from the pandemic if not quite so much as elsewhere in terms of the human cost, it is in a recession. Now the economy is going to contract by about six percent. This year unemployment is rising the wage subsidy that is coming off. So Wild New Zealand has done very well at keeping the virus out there going to be lots more questions about what that has caused it, and how it is going to drive a recovery how it's going to get out of that mess. The Prime Minister says that there is a plan for recovery which includes things like building lots of roads but to her pregnancy looks quite incremental. They out there in no big plans for tax reform for example of just third some income tax hikes. But only on the talk to percent of workers say theoretically might think that with such strong majority, they pressure more radical agenda but there are many people in New Zealand see that. So to be so popular, you've got to be fairly uncontroversial owner. Thank you very much for joining us. Thanks, Jason.

A Look At Apple's Hi, Speed Event

"Few huge surprises at apple's high speed event though. There were some unexpected bits. Did. Anybody. See The verizon thing coming? Did we have any idea what? MAG SAFE WAS GONNA turn out to be. There we'll get to those. Most of today's presentation is drawn from a couple of viewings of the Apple Park presentation. We'll also pull from the usual suspects doing their usual bang-up jobs. Tuesday's high-speed event presentation started with Apple CEO Tim Cook welcoming viewers back to Apple Park than throwing the presentation almost immediately to others to give the INS and outs of home pod. Many. Bob Board richer's apple VP worldwide product marketing listed the company's desires for home pod. Wanting. The device to have amazing sound to act as an intelligent assistant to serve as a smart home hub all while protecting the privacy and security of the user. This, they say they do in a smaller spherical unit that costs less than one third of the original home pods original asking price. On the amazing sound side company bragged on the devices ro properties as well as how well it plays with others. Others being other apple devices. Users can apparently sink home pod many's either a stereo pairs or to play the same audio throughout the home. The. Inclusion of apples you one processor makes handoff easier to handle according to the company. For what it'll play. Well, there's the usual stuff apple music, apple podcasts, iheartradio radio DOT COM tuned in with Pandora and Amazon music on the way in the coming months. As for the smart part Home Pod, many will handle or interact with messages. Calendar phone calls maps music because. The. Weather reminders and find my feature. There was also an interesting demo where users ask for personal updates and got them. personalized. So he you know multiple voice recognition is key. Now. One new feature mentioned and de Mode was intercom. This is basically what it sounds like. You tell home pod to deliver a message to everybody and the various apple devices in the house including other home pods, iphones, apple watches air pods, and even carplay units play or display the message. I have heard entercom will work with the original home pods as well though not seeing that confirmed. Addressing. It's smart home hub nece home pod many integrates with apple's home APP that lets control home connected accessories said scenes and stuff like that. Covering User Privacy Apple, says no word spoken to Home Pod, leave your home until you touch home pod many or say he. S I are. So, yes, it is always listening but what it here's goes nowhere until you give it the command. Request. A home pot or not associated with apple ID. You choose whether recordings are saved by apple personal requests only work when the associated iphone is home with you. And communications with smart home accessories used strong encryption according to the company. Now I, said earlier that the unit is spiritual. If you've seen a home pod, there is no mistaking what this thing is. Same sort of light up display on the top same mesh wrapping it's roundedness and the same white and space grey options as the original home pod. Coming soon to flat surface near you. Orders for home pod many began on the sixth of November unit, start, shipping the week of the sixteenth of November. Not Price, to beat an echo but not a device that will break the bank. Home Pod many will sell. For, Ninety, nine bucks. Okay. I pretend to hear you say but I'm worried about breaking my home pause many. Not sure why but better to be safe in your case. To that end apple care plus we'll be available for home pod. Many. A piece from macrumors says, that will run buyers fifteen bucks. When Tim Cook was back on camera, he took a moment to Brag on iphones past noting the iphone eleven has been the number one smartphone in the world since its launch and that I phone has led the industry in customer satisfaction every year since it's Get ready to hate all of them as the iphone twelve line makes the scene bringing with it five G. Connectivity. Which one? All of them. Had Been Rumored Apple announced four iphone phone twelve models and has had also been rumored. Each can support five G.. Cook says, five G. Brings A new level of performance for downloads UPLOADS, higher quality video streaming, more responsive gaming, real time interactivity, and more. The CEO says five Jia superfast, which he actually pitched as a security feature speeds are so good. He says you'll be less tempted to sign on the public WIFI limiting exposure to the dangers that lurk there. Every decade brings new technology that provides a step change in what we can do with iphone said Cook. Today. A new era begins for iphone. Today we're bringing by G. to phone. Then began the verizon commercial. Hans Fest Berg Chairman and CEO. Verizon took to the stage talk about big reds five G. offering. Verizon's by ultra wideband with large quantities of millimeter wave access will be live and sixty cities across the US by the end of this year. In ideal conditions, Best Burg says the carriers seen four gigabits down and two hundred megabits up. The four gigabits is kind of funny own Antonio Guy says an ideal conditions. Well it doesn't sound like you're getting four GIGA beds but we'll get, him. The other thing best Burger announced was flipping the switch on Verizon's extensive five gene nationwide network. That apparently went live yesterday. Boy would I like to know the terms of the deal worked out between, that bill and Verizon? Emphasis on particular carrier. I did not see coming. Now I said iphone twelve comes in four models here the rumor mill rang true. The phones are iphone twelve iphone twelve many iphone twelve pro and iphone twelve pro, Max. Starting with iphone twelve, remember the squared off edges of iphone Four. The new design returns us to that. Squared edges that meet flush with the devices front and back glass the front classes something special though. Working with corning delay, this display is protected by what apple. Calls Ceramic. Shield. It is said by the company to be tougher than any other smartphone class with four times better dropped performance than iphone eleven. The display it's protecting is apple custom Ole ed providing truer blacks, better contrast and two times the pixels iphone eleven or four, hundred, sixty pixels per inch. While that displays the same six point one inches iphone eleven, apple shrank the surrounding enough to make iphone. Eleven percent than her fifteen percent smaller and sixteen percent lighter than iphone. Eleven Choice of colors is not huge but they are pretty. With options and black. White Product Red Green. And blue that. Does things for me. I shouldn't talk about in mixed company. The candy coating is nice. Let's talk about. It's Chewy. Chocolate center starting with the phones five Genus Apple says, iphone twelve has the most five G. bands of any smartphone for better performance in more places. Additionally the company's silicon, the software approach. Let's apple make the best use of available five G. including choosing to not use five. G.. It sounds like iphone defaults to lt e tapping into five G. when it's both necessary and available. That is great for power consumption according to the company. Apples tested the new phones on over one hundred carriers and over thirty regions. In ideal conditions iphone twelve gets up to three point five gigabits on. which is what makes the Brian Bragging about four gigabytes down kind of funny yesterday. It does support millimeter wave those so. got that going for it. As, for the phones on workings iphone twelve powered by apple's a fourteen bionic, the first phone powered by the five nanometer processor technology packing eleven point eight billion transistors roughly forty percent more than eight thirteen. A six core CPU that's up to fifty percent faster than last year's phone and a four core GPU graphics that are up to fifty percent faster than last year's model. Machine learning also gets a boost iphone, twelve packs of sixteen coordinator and Gen that's up to eighty percent faster than iphone eleven capable of eleven, trillion operations per second. Company bragged on Games claiming console quality for the phone. To Demonstrate and executive from riot games showed off League of legends wild rift a mobile, only game due out later this year. Well phone twelve is not the phone photographers would choose. There's plenty of improvement and it's cameras. Apple says the phone has a twelve megapixel ultra wide camera and twelve megapixel wide camera. It said the sport, the fastest aperture yet it also features a seven element lens that apple says offers twenty-seven percent improvement in low light performance. Mag Save is an internal thing. Rather than a name for a connector is in days of old MAG. Safe today is a collection of magnets and charging elements that help line up the phone for proper charging. When it's not charging those magnets go to work holding on cases and wallets and third party stuff. Apple expects a thriving ecosystem of third party doodads take advantage of the newly introduced MAG. Safe. Ness. Mag Safety. Safe thing. Anyway. It's a thing built into iphone twelve. Every model in the line. Now's probably phone twelve many. Except for the size, you can take everything I've said so far about iphone twelve and play it back. iphone twelve many has the same specs as iphone twelve though in a slightly smaller size. The company says the mini is smaller and lighter than four point seven inch models like iphone eight but with a bigger five point four inch display. Apple says, this one is the smallest thinnest and lightest five G. phone. In the world. Talking about last night with Frederik, Van Johnson, and a few other folks on Chuck joiners Mac. Voices. We came to the conclusion that the pro phones for two groups, people who wanna spend as much money as they can afford. Or people who really care about the camera. There's nothing wrong with the camera functionality and the iphone twelve or iphone twelve many. Unless you count they're not being as high end as the camera on the high end. No I'm not a high end photo guy. So there was a lot set around iphone twelve pro, an iphone twelve pro Max that escapes me. The camera on iphone twelve pro boxes said by apple to have a sixty five millimeter focal length from fifty two millimeter focal length and last year's counterpart. It's got five times optical zoom range and the set to support an eighty seven percent improvement in low light versus last year's top of the pro line. I do know enough to be impressed by one thing. The pro line can shoot an apple pro raw. or it will be able to with a software update. Later, this year photographers will also be able to edit those images. Directly, in the photos APP. The pros can also handle. HD are video recording catching seven hundred million colors. Sixty Times, the number they could capture before. Apple, said they also sport the first smartphone camera that'll record in dolby vision hd are. And just like the apple pro raw functionality users will be able to edit the dobie vision HDR video in the photos APP. Finally the light are rumors were finely true the twelve pro and twelve pro Mac speech or a world facing light detection and ranging scanner. That let folks scan and modeled their surroundings. Apples Demos showed that put to use for placing objects in an augmented reality environment performing improved autofocus and low light and improving camera that perception in low light for night moat. Working our way out of these phones, Greg, Joswiak, apple's newly minted senior. VP Worldwide Marketing talked about a few of the pro lines features. It's got mad safe. It's got ceramic shield. It's got a Super Ratna FDR display. As for sizes iphone twelve pro gets bumped from five point eight inch display display size of six point one inches the pro Max meanwhile goes six point five inch display to a display size of six point seven. All of it is bound by the same squared off edges as iphone twelve, the with a couple of distinctions. I. The outer band is stainless steel on the pro line and second the colors are a bit more refined. Coming in silver graphite a gold that looks seriously golden. And the Pacific. Blue that doesn't do as much for me as the blue on the IPHONE twelve. Not that I'd turn it down. If cost is your primary concern. Here is what you're looking at across the whole line of iphones. iphone se. Start Three, hundred, ninety, nine dollars iphone ten are starts at four ninety, nine iphone eleven starts at five, ninety, nine iphone many starts at hundred ninety, nine dollars iphone twelve starts at seven ninety, nine, iphone twelve pro starts at nine, ninety nine. An iphone Pro Max starts at one, thousand, ninety, nine dollars. For the new phones though those prices are only Kinda SORTA true. Peace, from the Mac Observer says iphone twelve many an iphone twelve do start at six, ninety, nine and seven, ninety nine if you buy them as a t and T or verizon phones if you buy one is either a sprint or t mobile phone or as an unlocked phone. The starting prices are seven, twenty, nine, and eight, twenty nine. With no indication as to why. While it's great that ceramic shield means less of a chance of broken display. The chance is still there. If that bugs, you apple care pluses there for all of them. macrumors says, two years of coverage will run one, hundred, forty, nine dollars for iphone and twelve mini. Adding loss or theft protection will up that price to to nineteen buyers can get ongoing coverage for seven, ninety, nine per month or eleven dollars and forty nine cents with loss and theft added. As for the higher end phones, the pizzas, two years of Apple Care Plus will cost one, nine, thousand, nine or nine dollars ninety nine cents per month. Theft. And loss coverage bumps that price to two, hundred, sixty, nine dollars or thirteen dollars and forty nine cents per month. Ongoing. As for availability, apple is starting in the middle.

Sudan floods: UN calls for urgent funding,asfood insecuritymounts

"While Sudan has been hit by devastating floods the worst seen in decades impacting more than six hundred, thousand people across seventeen of the country's eighteen states with homes destroyed and farmland damage. Just ahead of the harvest season, he's been another shock amid multiple crises according to the Food and Agriculture Organization FAO urgent funding is needed to support a country already facing alarmingly high rates of hunger and food insecurity. Dominique Bergin FAO's director of emergency resilience has just returned from a mission to sedan. He told Charlotte Lomas how dire the situation really is for people there. They're just returned from Sudan couple of days ago where I wasn't a mission already to the floods which have been affecting the countries over the last couple of these floods are truly devastating down the largest thinking the country in over seventy years who have conducted happy assessments with the me of coacher and found that up to six hundred thousand households have been affected by the impact. Of the floods more than two point, two million actors have been damaged. So it's quite serious but the problem here is that this comes at the top of an already difficult situation for millions of paper as a matter of fact, before these, let's nine point six million people were already in acute food insecurity ready a very difficult situation related to a variety of of issues social economic crying he's covid crises and even know in some part of the country the issues already locust. So quite serious situation that therefore Esguerra, our full attention. You travel to two of the affected sites what were your impressions? So we went to two of the most affected states we undertook mission with government officials as a matter of. Factly culture was with us and we spend today's in blue, Nile State, and in Sennar state, and they're what we could see is the variety of the damaged. We saw the impact on commercial farmers, and with few damage, they will be very little employment opportunities for the people. So one of the things we saw. We saw. Livestock owners, Pasta list being severely affected. By doing of the floods having lost for some of them up to seventy five percent of their livestock, which in turn is a problem for them because this is their main source of livelihood we saw that forty two percent of those affected by by the floods are women and it all sorts. So we went to the field we we spend time with them, and what we saw is that I mean situation is very, very severe. This time of the year they should have sorghum that is one meter and a half I ready to our best. Instead, we could see field full of. wheats with sorghum and that will not be honest. So in talking to these women, we understand they're already struggling. They're adopting what we call negative coping strategies, which means that they are cutting the number of the means to quantity of them is and what we found is that at this point of the ready, they're only having one meal per day and very basic meal. So very T- tuition and therefore these people need our assistance. How will this floods affect food security across the country? The food security situation prior to the floods was already severe nine point six, million people in acute insecurity. Two point two million people in emergency face. When we visited the blue states, what was clear is that we were in a state where twenty seven percent of the population prior to the plots was already in acute with with insecurity. So it is clear that with the impact of the ways, the fact that people not be able to harvest with the fact that they have been losing animals with the fact that prices are extremely volatile and ever tendency to increase significantly. The estimate is that the food security situation will further. And therefore, we need to be ready to provide at scale. Livelihood Saving Assistance. In collaboration, of course, we other agencies what is doing to assist Sadan since the beginning of the year I feel despite the covid situation has been able to provide assistance who about nine, hundred, twenty, thousand people, which is quite significant in this context. Now, what we are doing is that we are appealing for additional resources innovation essentially to the floods, but the flood. Being one more driver of accurate with insecurity. So, what we are doing is essentially appealing for seventy million dollars additional. To basically cover the needs of the people for the coming season in terms of cash assistance for people to meet the most immediate needs press agricultural inputs for the coming season so that immediately they can go back to their productivity. Always bearing in nine FAO wide providing humanitarian livelihood saving activities is very keen to build the zillions of populations which as we know are essential when people face regular shocks.

"Bathroom, sinks and kitchen appliances to New York's Chrysler building, and the Saint Louis. Gateway. Arch. The world sometimes seems like it's covered in stainless steel. And why not the material is not only sturdy and versatile, but also stainless as the name implies, but is it really impossible to stain stainless steel? Stainless steel is a family of materials that gets its handle from corrosion and oxidation resistant properties that protect it from rust and unsightly botches. Generally, these steals our mixture of iron end at least ten point, five percent chromium sometimes rounded to eleven percent by engineers. When exposed to oxygen and moisture a for instance, when a stainless steel pan is nick door dinged chromium is an element that produces thin oxide film, the coats the product. This self repairing feature of stainless steel ensures the object will always look smooth and shiny. Various European American metallurgists claim to have invented. This wonders material. A We do know that Croup ironworks in Germany created an acid resistant steel as early as nineteen eight, it was used for the hell of a yacht. To other German researchers discovered the relationship between chromium content and corrosion resistance that metal containing at least ten point five percent chromium had a greater resistance to corrosion. Meanwhile American. elwood Haynes patented one type of stainless steel precursor in nine eleven and English researcher. Harry brearley developed a similar material around the same time. After a four year dustup in which hanes successfully opposed brearley's attempt to patent his version of the steel, the to pooled resources to market their wares as the American stainless steel. Company. These and other stainless bells found their way into cutlery airplane parts, Gulf clubs, and Adams almost immediately. But not all stainless steel is created equal. There are four main types of stainless steel classified by structure and composition. The most common variety is static sixty, five percent of the stainless steel produced. All's in this category. A static steals can be found in products ranging from cutlery and cookware to automotive trim and industrial applications. Immaterial pains at least sixteen percent chromium no more than zero point one, five percent carbon and usually includes nickel or manganese for added their ability. Meanwhile. For riddick stainless steels contain up to twenty seven percent chromium often as well as aluminum or titanium, but if little or no nickel. means that while these materials are highly resistant to Croatian, they're less durable than their austin cousins. For riddick steals are more affordable than Austin attic varieties and are commonly used in Mufflers, exhaust, systems kitchen counters, and sinks. Then we have Martin's stainless steels which are less corrosion resistant than the first two types, but are noted for their extreme strength and durability. Of the material contains twelve fourteen percent chromium along with small amounts of Molybdenum and carbon. These steals also contain little to no nickel less than two percent. Martin's stainless steels are magnetic and are often used in products where this feature's useful like a kitchen back splash to which spice rack or other metal object can be attached without using fasteners. A finally duplex stainless steels combined the benefits of Austin night and fair right to provide enhanced decay resistance and beefed up strength and durability. metallurgists typically look to create a mix that's half Austin and half foretich. The result is material that features more chromium and less nickel than his found in Pure Austin at steals about twenty to twenty, five percent chromium and five percent nickel as well as a high level of Molybdenum. These deals are primarily used in chemical plants and piping applications. You may have noticed our use of the term resistant when referring to these stainless steels capacity for avoiding blemishes. So is the material just stain resistant or completely stain proof? And despite the hardy protection that it affords users, stainless steel is more stain less and stainless in other words while the material is highly resistant to discoloration blemishes and other imperfections, it's not completely impenetrable. Just look at the Gateway Arch, which is starting to show its age with breast and K after five decades of welcoming tourists to saint. Louis. The protective layer of film covering a stainless steel object can break down over time leading to corrosion and pitting. In addition compounds like chloride, hydrogen and hydrogen sulfide often caused the film to stress and crack. The level of rest resistance provided by a particular steel depends largely on the materials used to create it the more chromium, the more corrosion protection. The sturdier stainless steels also feature at least eight percent nickel, which provides further defense against tarnish. Some products are tagged with numbers indicating their proportions of chromium and nickel. For instance, eighteen over ten flatware is sold at a premium because it has eighteen percent chromium and ten percent nickel content providing greater protection against corrosion than ordinary flatware. For household users it's important to understand that many metals advertised a stainless steel are actually stainless steel played it. The plate is corrosion resistant, but is susceptible to damage if cut or scratched deep enough to reach the. Material because the plates can also wear off over time, buyers should clarify whether a particular product is made completely of stainless steel or simply plated. Whether played it or not. You're stainless steel appliances and other products need to be cleaned. Most of the time good old fashioned soap and water will do the trick for tougher stains. Professionals recommend variety of household remedies. A couple of dabs of olive oil or window cleaner can remove most of those pesky fingerprints and smudges while white or cider vinegar will restore shine. A don't use steel wool pads or harsh cleaning powders as they'll scratched surface. If you need to remove burnt on food from stainless steel pan, let it soak in warm water and then clean it with baking soda and Gentle Nylon or plant based scouring pad.

Did ETFs Pass the 2020 Market Collapse Stress Test

"There's a paper issued by the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston titled The shift from Active to passive investing potential risks to financial stability.

And yet the markets seem to function generally speaking at least for equity ETF's. Even. Michael. Berry in March twenty twenty seemed to admit this. He told Bloomberg I have a significant bearish market bat that is working out for now. A global pandemic is absolutely potential trigger for the unwinding of the passive investing bubble. But despite volatility Berry said, he hadn't noticed any signs of dysfunction in the markets that was making it harder for him, the trade or exploit investment opportunities. Equity ETF seems to have passed that stress test it worked even though the volume of trading was so much higher. The number of ATS was so much higher. There were some challenges on the bond side. The vanguard total bond market ETF. B, n De on March Twelfth, it's closing price was six point two percent less than its net asset value per share. The price was less than the supposed value of the underlying holdings on a per share basis.

"Everybody around here today, we have a special guests on the program Jim Cramer. Needs no introduction Jim thanks for taking the time out of your busy schedule to join us today and talk a little bit about desolate. I think Tesla's the most important stock in the market because it's created a tremendous amount fascination which you know why like it's been hard to find people who understand Tesla like you like you do in other words when I say that mean people understand Tesla, the car tesla the Stock Tesla, the myth test, the reality, which is why it's so exciting to speak with you because frankly anything Tesla I regard as the most exciting thing that's happening in the market and I'm with the guy. I definitely agree. So I'd love to get your thoughts because I think you're you're thinking on Tesla has evolved quite a bit over the last couple of years I know a few years back to your more mixon. You've called it a cult stock gotten into some interaction with Ilan on twitter over the last I think probably eighteen to twelve months. You've you've definitely become a lot more bullish, which was great. Timing has the stock has reflected that as well. So I just love to hear sort of the evolution of thought process on tussle over the last couple of years. Great. Okay. When he came out I thought it was too hot. And I. I said people should sell it now I know that I had subsequent met. You must get a dinner party. And he belittled me he. Space said that if tried question, his analysis of the wall have giant solar field in Colorado we're all other energy's GonNa be provided from five years announcement five years I've seen it yet. He did pronounced me as a hologram basically. Didn't even exist. I thought it was one of the greatest put downs ever except I wish it weren't addressed. Thank. Eh former. Mathematicians Twenty, seven percent. But here's what's happened to me. I looked at his a stock. I didn't look at it. And I think that what happened is basically a a religious could it was a religious? Conversion. I went out to California my daughter had just driven. From Oregon she was living to Los Angeles. And she talked about charging talks about it was about the flatulence button instead you know data been driving. For twelve years. I never cared what a job. It's never been important. She had a beat up two, thousand, eight A. Ford fiesta she'd been driving she wasn't a corporate, but Tesla made her into Cooper's. So then I went out to sea venture mine one executive is so come bally's a company and another former CFO and they had all tesla's. and. My wife who is a complete corpus I mean a nut car person just loves it her favorite everything's ninety, four range over that. She has she said this is it a she drove it and she said this is it. Now we have not bought one yet because she's we're going. To be able to say listen Jim, you should buy because you live in some new. Jersey accuses go around car but when I was driving with the person who was retired was the CFO as you know what my daughter loves it, my wife loves it. It's so cool but they don't have the financials did naked so that I can recommend it to sixty. And he looked at me turn Amigos. GM naked race two billion dollars. Like. Religious, conversion. The conversion was right there because I knew rob. At, the balance sheet was not questioned. Admin. Panel table ever since we caught a lot of points I, continue to recommend it. I should have realized along the way that when Jay Leno told me Jim. Is the greatest car coming around one fifty. I should've just changed my mind but I hadn't been in the car rob other than. My friend, kwame picked me up to a little bit. And when you have a person who's never driven a car saying, this is like the greatest thing ever doesn't think of as a car and then you have the coordinate nut Lisa who says, this is the greatest thing ever and you have a CFO's very rigorous who said look they can raise the money I said, what am I doing? Why am I fighting the truth? Why am I fighting progress? So rob I surrendered and the best qualified made this year.

Tamarack Cellars Firehouse Red 2017

"Stave from cheap wine, fighter dot. com. With another wind today. We've just put on the cheap wine finder dot com website. We have eleven, years reviews all basically affordable lives and this one is a red blend from. Columbia Valley. From tamarack cellars, they're they're basically a Bow Take style, single vineyard kind of. Kind of winery but this is their firehouse red blend. It's twenty seventeen. and. It's got to be collected group of grapes. There's a whole bunch. There's Grenache. Merlot and Soviet, Blonde Gannett remember all of them. There's others two percent of this whom wide was coon winder send your basic for though. I think carbonate Ron. There's just a ton of different grapes, percentages and some very. Precise blend which I have like. Some blends you know there, you can't tell one grape, the other you just tastes good but you don't really. Case, individual grapes this when you, I think you Kinda I. I quite honestly don't know taste like. A blending grape from the Rhone Valley. have before, but in a blend, so I couldn't tell you and there's all these different flavors coming in through there like each one even though there's two percent of this three percent of that in the main grape has thirty, three percent and twenty, seven percent. There is no, you know this isn't like seventy percent one in a bunch of other this is really a blend. And it's their individual flavors and there's You. Know there's some of this and there's some of that I'm gonNA take a SIP. And it's. Really a good taste. There's a lot of flavor going on. And it's not just a simple wine. It is Kinda smooth on the palate with their art art things and there are challenging flavors but mostly, it's really good tasting. Because there's sours they're spicy and. There's rounded fruit. This is a really good bland I. Mean I think it's about fifteen bucks I think I've found it on sale around fifteen. And It's very precise I mean you don't add two percent of this rape and two percent of that grape unless you really really wanted in there I asked. Winemaker one time while they put one percent. Everything you add changes something you know they put it in there because they want it and there. And the OAK program the used A. Forty Percent New Oak sixty percent second and third Phil. Mostly French and American with some hung Gary O'Connor. Burian and French are pretty much the same species Americans. Different each give off different flavors. In. Every time you use Vero, the barreled gives off a little less oak. So it's forty percent new oak, which you get the full flavor, and then you get a little bit less and they do that to get the wine because this is basically a drink wine you take it home Newton, drink it. You can put it away for five or six years if you have the means to do that, but you don't have to do that. And they get the flavor exactly right where they wanted to be when it's ready to be released, which is two thousand, seventeen model. So that's what that is. This is a very good. What's at? Tamarack cellars by our house. Red Blend. It kinda sounds rustic and a little bit is a has a little rough edges has some smoothest to it it's kind. Yeah. The the name actually tells you what's going on here and I like my red blends a little bit rustic. You know I liked I liked some some little rough edges to go with. The. Ripe Fruit and I got this year I'm kind of happy with US wine I'm it tastes good. It's such a strange. Now it's a strange for such diverse. the array of. That doesn't taste like your difficult red wine not. In this day and age red wine blends are really pretty good spells you affordable ones but this has a different taste to it. That's well-made. said it's got good acidity Tanzer sweep. Particular sip because it's good. Tim Rex sellers firehouse red blend twenty, seventeen, probably twenty, seven, twenty sixteen is good to. Really good red blend Fifteen bucks taste it it actually. Tastes more expensive fifteen dollar wines expect to be really good in this one. This one of someone told you. It was thirty bucks you go. Okay. You believe it. So. There you go. That's me. I just found a good read blend doesn't mean let's dot super expensive taste.

Seattle-area home prices unscathed by coronavirus pandemic

"The covid nineteen pandemic may have done a number on the Konami, but one area seems to be immune Seattle's. Is Still on fire, and all of this time inside has given homebuyers some time to think about what they need. Now Daryl fairweather knows something about that. She's the Chief Economist Redfin Hi Daryl. Hi? Be here. So Seattle's housing market was one of the hottest in the country before the pandemic give me the skinny on how it looks now. Seattle housing market is just as hot as it was before it's almost like that blip where we took a v-shaped dip is through it, and now the housing market is back. It's pretty astonishing. I know some potential first time home buyers had hoped. This was going to be there time. The economic disaster would help them actually get into the market that hasn't panned out at all why haven't prices gone down as the economy has taken a hit here. This pandemic recession is really nothing like the two thousand recession in the two, thousand, eight recession it started in the housing market with foreclosures, and after that, a lot of safeguards are putting in place where people with really excellent credit could get mortgages for homes or people who had the cash to buy homes outright, and since then home values have gone up especially in Seattle. So people have a lot of equity in. Their homes, which gives them a lot of cushion to keep paying their mortgage or refinance their mortgage at Super Low rates that we have right now. So there really isn't a lot of pressure on the housing market. If anything it's resilient. So a lot of people are working from home right now is well, maybe they need a little bit more space. How has that changed? What people are looking for in a House Yes that is another unique thing about this pandemic recession is is changing the relationship people have their homes before it used to be that the openly out was most desirable layout in a home. That's where you have this like really big area for entertaining where the kitchen flows. Until the living room people don't want that anymore. They don't want to hear the noise of their partner cooking while. They're trying to do work and living room are having their kids on their devices in the living room when they're trying to do work from there from the same space. So people want separate spaces for each family members. So they can each work from home or home school or whatever is that they're doing having just spent four months in the House with my family. I. That makes complete sense. We've just been together to learn. I think everyone's feeling that I wonder if part of this is a little bit of zoom and the because people can see into your house now. So the space that you're creating around you is also your professional environment in some cases. Yeah. I think that's true. It's not just the clothes that you wear to work anymore people are living and your background, and that gives them a sense of who you are as a person absolutely absolutely and You know buying and selling a home is an extremely emotional experience and we're at a pretty vulnerable state right now as humans I wonder how that showing up. Are you seeing that show up in the way people are buying and selling their homes? There's a lot of competition for home by right now, more than half of redfin offers are facing competition and I think that feeds into the behaviors we're seeing where people are really urgent to get home and we're also seeing war sight. Unseen offer is nearly half of homebuyers report having made an offer on a home before even setting foot on it. So people are kind of racing each other to see who can go through that three tour passes put an offer and fastest. So I think speed of the market is just accelerating. That sounds pretty reminiscent of the last frenzy we were having around home-buying, but I'm guessing this time around it might be because people aren't totally comfortable having a lot of people coming in and out of their houses right now. Yes both sellers and buyers are embracing technology. They don't want to have to go view the home in person times they'll just have one viewing or sometimes even zero viewings and they'll do a lot of their research online. So it's religious changing the way people are buying homes. I just cannot even imagine having an entirely electronic experience when you're dropping hundreds of thousands of dollars in one place that just seems a Little Bananas Daryl. That's. That doesn't that. That just seems crazy to me people are doing. What about people who can't afford to buy homes in Seattle right now what's happening to renters? So people who can't afford to buy in the city center there looking outside of the city they're looking at the suburbs or small towns even moving across the country because while homeownership is quite unaffordable on places like Seattle, you can get a lot more bang for your buck if you look in a more rural part of Washington or even in the center of the country and our A. Lot of people doing that because it seems like from the things that I'm hearing, you say location location location means different things right now because we are expecting different things from our environments. So then we track how many of our users are looking outside of their own metropolitan area, and that number had a record high last quarter of twenty seven percent. I've read from users looking outside the Metro. So that's been trying to the pandemic and it's probably going to continue especially as more employers. Say that they're going to let employees work for home or work remotely permanently.

Airline Layoffs and Furloughs

Airline Layoffs and Furloughs

"We see in the Motley fool that southwest airlines they say has another ominous warning for airlines. And I. Guess Southwest Airlines has never had an involuntary layoff or a furlough, but Max. That might change this year. It's really quite a record that they have. That's really remarkable I. think what it really is a testimony to the tremendous amount of growth year on year that they've had for so many years in a row that they've been able to do that because that's that's got to be unique in the the industry but it does talk about how they originally had a fairly aggressive plan to get their schedule back to position whereby November December of this year they'd be at the same levels where they were a year ago. Well, that seems like that was probably a little overly mystic, and so they're finally recognizing that and. Notifying employees that you know layoff may be in the cards. Fact I believe. They had said that in order for them to avoid layoffs that traffic volume would have to triple from where it is currently and so the odds of that seems pretty unlikely. If you look at where traffic is I guess in the most recent period. They say that they were at about twenty seven percent of what they were a year ago. Now I. I just saw an article come out a day or so ago, which said that traffic has been steadily increasing since April up until this past week when it was down four percent so I i. think we're probably at best word. A new plateau at worst traffic is probably going back down again now. This article being from the Motley Fool. They have to talk about stocks the very end. They say ten stocks. We like better than South West, airlines. I'm thinking Probably the airlines are. Probably. Not In the top ten in sectors that you WANNA be investing in right now, but maybe I mean. Maybe they're depressed so low that they could bounce back, but I have breaking news. Yes, this is from NBC today this morning actually. Nearly seventeen thousand South West employees sign up for buyouts or voluntary leaves as furlough threat looms. They got more people buying out and retiring than they were expecting, so they're external looking to. Twenty percent of Southwest Airlines, were for signed up for partially paid extended leaves of absence were outright buyouts, according to Gary Kelly nearly four thousand. Put Your hands up for buyouts were close to twelve, thousand, five hundred expect in extended time off so. They're doing better than they were expecting for South West given given this this news coming out today. Yeah, and it's reported that seventeen thousand represents roughly twenty eight percent of the South West workforce. And there was another a bit of news from. Delta today. as we record this on Monday Delta. Says that two, thousand, two, hundred, thirty, five Delta pilots accepted an early departure package of of one sort or another. so. Yeah I. think that you know when when we see. The Airlines talking about possibilities here of of these layoffs they really are encouraging employees to accept the you know the package and there are wide wide variety of packages out there. Early retirement extended leave at reduced rates I mean there's all all manner of flavors of these things.

"Hello and welcome to wide you push that button a show where Caitlin tiffany. And Ashley Carmen that's me examine all the choices. Technology forces us to make. We are back sort of just for now just for today. Yeah, a little one off for all of you who have stuck with us for this Os year since we last released episode I have absolutely no sense of whether that's accurate because I no longer have any idea of the use of calendars. Yeah, so! Pandemic Kate. How how have you been doing? Let's give the listeners a little bit of a sense of our mental state. These days yeah I, think I'm getting into the swing of it. When a couple of months ago. When we started talking about doing this episode, it was chaos here in the tiffany home I had recently broken a mirror a window to wine glasses. It was basically like I was just kind of crunching around like a floor covered in glass being like I. Wonder if I'll ever see my friends or family. so that was a dark time. I, am but. Things are picking up in new. York a little bit were allowed to go to the beach crucial. Yeah, allowed to look at each other outside. If not touch each other, so things are on the on the up. Yeah, we've. We've seen each other. which is really great I think I've sort of settled into a routine of sorts I've done. Pandemic Bingo I've done polygon workouts. I've made various foods and baked I've done. Done a puzzle. I hate to admit out loud I learned tiktok dances in had jello shots. Right birthday that you made me. Yes, anyway, so we wanted to do this episode where you know of course. Why'd you push that button? We are always curious about how dating affected. What's changing dating these days? So we wanted to episode about how cove nineteen in the pandemic has forced us to make a ton of. Of decisions about how we live work, relax etc, and how he date. Everyone's been staying at home. As you all know, and so that means they have been able to Columbia date and virtual dating has become a thing and we want to know. Is this thing that's going to last forever, or is this a pandemic phenomenon at? We're going all forget ever happened. Repress. It maybe mentioned it to our therapist once and. And that's it. Yes, so virgil dating I guess the first half of virtual dating is a concept that was already part of normal dating interest, swiping on tinder or okay. Cupid or hinge, which I guess is more of a scroll type action, but you know whatever, and then the virtual component is that because we have been understood home orders, and because people have been encouraged not to hang out in close proximity with. With people who don't live with them, you just don't do the whole thing where you meet up in a bar. Who would you can't do You don't do the whole kissing thing. You don't do any of that. You just like facetime or zoom or SKYPE OR INSERT alternative secure video conferencing software here to see if you have a connection, which all of that I think makes sense. We're kind of interested in. In what happens after the first time you facetime with somebody, win, you know. How do you build momentum? Can you build momentum?

I think broadly geographic location has become increasingly less important like when you're doing remote work. It doesn't matter where you are I could be doing an forest. Forest or beach or in the city, and it really does not matter as long as I have an Internet connection, but you know dating these dating. APPs have kind of made. It seem like maybe geographic location doesn't matter for that either, so we WANNA know how effective it really is to date from afar, and so here's here's stats. We're just throw some numbers at everybody. Okay. Cupid said that sixty two percent increase. Increase in daters on okay, but going on virtual dates in April, compared to March and it started including covid nineteen questions in people's profiles, they could talk about how they feel about. The pandemic e harmony reported a twenty seven percent increase in messages in April match, said that daily swipes read an all time high during its last earnings report, which was mid pandemic, so obviously, all of these stats are a little bit. But they are from the peak of the pandemic, which is, we would expect most people to be using their APPs video calls the most so presumably while the pandemic kind of wanes and then comes back during the year. We'll see people stay on the APPs the probably changed how much they're using them depending on the state of lockdown in their state or country,

Nature's Goods and Services Get Priced

"Gross Domestic Product the GDP is a simple way to describe the health of big complicated economies, and for the last century, the goal of many countries has been to make their GDP. Go Up, but concentrating only on GDP has had some downsides in growing the economy we have as an unintended consequence, destroyed parts of nature which are also important for our well-being Stephen Polaski an environmental economist at the University of Minnesota. He and his colleagues have created a new measurement, the gross ecosystem product or P. So that we actually have metrics that say. How are we doing on ecosystem management, managing nature, and not just for Nature Sake, but how is that coming back and influencing our own well-being? really G EP is trying to say what is the contribution of nature to the economy so in a parallel way to what GDP does in measuring economic performance tallying up the economic. Economic value of timber and fisheries is fairly straightforward, but other benefits of a healthy environment can be less obvious. Insects pollinate crops. Intact rivers improve water, quality and buffer downstream cities from floods, thriving ecosystems draw tourists who spend money and part of the issue here is that it is difficult to price some of these things you know. Some people even say while they're price less. What it means in practice, priceless means it has zero value in much of the calculations, zero value in the GDP, but not in the EP for example Pulaski and his colleagues calculated the figure for Qinghai a province in western China, they found that the gross ecosystem product exceeded GDP in the year two thousand and three quarters of GDP in twenty fifteen over that period GDP rose by one hundred and twenty seven percent thanks to major restoration efforts and the increasing value of water. The results are in the proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. The researchers focused on Ching Hai because it's one of several provinces where the Chinese government is experimenting with using GP as part of its formal decision making process for instance, GDP can help officials weigh the pros and cons of potential projects like dams, or it can be used to show whether local leaders are taking care of the environment and not just expanding the economy. GP could also serve as the basis for programs that pay residents to be good stewards of the natural resources that benefit themselves and others and Ching Hai such a program could work for water. The province is where the Yellow Yangtze and Mekong rivers originate, and their water sustained cities and farms across Asia. Polaski says their work is just a first step, and he expects EP to be refined over time, but he says we have to start somewhere. We are actually going to have a sustainable civilization than than we have to pay attention to kind of the infrastructure, basically the essential things that nature does for us and not continue to just take them for granted.

"More customers, which gives you more leverage with content providers, which isn't really a huge factor in their business yet, but there's some element of buying. They're already buying DVD's in mass. So they sort of need to be able to do that to serve more customers, and you can buy deeper in the tail when you have more customers they eventually do deals with. Movie studios as they get bigger to buy DVD's at a discount. Yep. So that gets you more and better content, which then makes you able to inherently that improves the product offering which then lets you go get more customers. And so I mean, it really it's it's a flywheel business that they're they're raising cash to pour onto it. So competitive stuff aside, they should have just gone out and raised as much as they possibly could have to be able to fuel that that flywheel faster they sold twenty seven percent of the business like good move. I mean, it's not like they could have raised anymore. And it doesn't feel like the stock price could have been any higher given the macroeconomic climate. They were in. So the way I look at this. They raised the most money they could which was the good idea. Even if they didn't need it for competitive reasons, which they did it was a good idea, timing wise and an amount wise. So, you know, it's not an ape plus for me because those are reserved for exceptional circumstances. But this is a solid. Yeah. I think one thing I wanted to add onto the flywheel aspect. We thought about this a lot at Rover actually, which is a subscription business, but has some of the same dynamics with a business like this subscription business. Once you grow to a certain point as you're going. You're spending a ton of money on customer acquisition, bringing new people in and as we talked about in the early stages of the market so much the market has yet to come. There comes a point where you flip from all of that money that you're spending on customer acquisition. You're not making that back in terms of revenue you're getting from your subscribers you're spending more than the money, you're getting back. But at a certain point in the market in the adoption phase that flips where you are. Now, you're still spending as fast as you can. But your subscribers space is so big they're generating so much cash that you now like your economics tip over into the positive once that happens you can super quickly go from like. Cash burning business as we saw to like an incredibly immensely profitable immensely. Big moat because for anybody else to come compete with you they'd have to spend the same amount that you spent a long way to get there. Now blockbuster could credibly do that Amazon could credibly do that, but nobody else could. And once Netflix did that that's when as far as the DVD business concerned was concerned. That's when they tipped until like, we are awesome business, very stable cashflows. It's the same thing with cable companies. This is how they work or worked. So. Yeah, I think it was like they absolutely needed that capital to do that. I think debate a or a minus certainly a range because they needed to they executed. It was great. They did what they had to do. Just the market conditions were so bad that like selling that much of the company like know. So not ideal. But I don't think they really had any other choice. So I don't know area minus. Alright carve outs carve outs. Okay. So mine go quickly.

There are a lot of things happening there that you talked about all the time. That kind of just pushed down that road of of his very liberal agenda like renaming streets, turn down statues, all that stuff that is starting to happen here sometimes, but it's just so much further down the line. You know, what were you doing? Are you there? Were you there on business or just for vacation? My wife was actually born there, so this is my second time. My last my last time was eighteen years ago.

So like if you're middle class pretty much everyone in the middle class neighborhood, there's a wall off razor wire on the top neighborhood with perimeter alarm and armed security. So people especially around Johannesburg. So there's definitely fear. There's huge security industry there because of this, the the wealth inequality is definitely there's some of this in the twenty seven percent unemployment rate.

You know. That's frightening. So go ahead go. No, it was just gonna say. Just blows my mind every time I go there because it's just a first world country that's just falling apart because you know, was going to the first World Infrastructure and most places, but then you have the shantytowns that that don't have that right. I was telling about one that's being built right up to the golf course. I'm private land, but they can't kick him off because it's just the way the legal process works and the favoritism shown to to people who are squatting. So it's it's a, it's when I think when land ownership crumbles like that, it, it definitely starts tear apart your society in your your freedom, you know? Yep. For the call. Thanks Charles. We were there actually six or seven years ago. It was during our Israel trip. So when did that happen? Two thousand eleven. Yep. Then we went to South Africa as part of that trip, and it is a, we were in. Capetown and it is a beautiful place. I mean, it's it's awesome. Of course we were in the nice part of town staying with the guy who was, I think, a billionaire at his home on the beach. And that was pretty awesome. That one's pretty pretty amazing. But then you drive just a few miles away and you see, like Charles said the shantytowns and you see the abject poverty and it's heart wrenching. So. I don't. I don't. I don't know how you pull out of that and if you're if you have all of this hatred to deal with as well as societal problems that are going on the economic problems that are going on, that makes a pretty tough triple eight, nine hundred thirty three Ninety-three.
