Hundred people are still dying every day from covert nineteen. That's still not nearly as bad as things got during the darkest days of last winter. But it's still pretty awful and no one thought the pandemic would still be taking this kind of toll you know especially so many months after we all thought that vaccines would be like the calvary. Righty to our rescue. I talked about this with dr. She's the deed of the brown school of public health infection. Numbers across the country are really stunningly. Bad i mean hundred and fifty hundred sixty thousand americans getting infected every single day. It's really stunning. That this is where we are as a country and you know just tragic since the incredibly effective vaccines made so much of this totally preventable even in the face of the delta varian. So where is this headed. I mean are things just going to go from bad to worse it again. Yes that's what everyone is wondering right. You know every parent in america's holding their breath hoping their kids are going to stay in school every workers wondering what's going to happen with their jobs and you know there is a glimmer of hope actually looks like the surge may have hit a peak and could be finally starting to subside at least for

Commodity Stocks Plummet as Climbing COVID Cases Weigh on Market

"Where we start off with. The great commodity collapsed crude oil falling to its lowest level since the end of may goals at its lows of the session was a prices not seen since april of last year. Silver is now down more than eight percent in just the past week. Cobber lumber you know also down. So does this commodity selloff give you cause for concern or is it a sign that inflation will be transitory as the fed says stan. What are your thoughts tells you that they think or at least investors selling off crude who firmed up the dollar firmed out the ten year. Us treasury yield. They're telling you that they think the fed is going to start to taper soon. And if you go back to two thousand thirteen. In the december meeting the fed started to taper bond purchases from eighty five billion a month to seventy five trillion and then each subsequent meeting they started tapering ten billion dollars. Look at those three risk assets that we talked about that would signal that maybe we get it. As soon as jackson hole at the end of this month or the next meeting in september that the fed might really start speaking to now. Obviously i have no idea but when you look at crude oil i'll just tell you what happened. From december two thousand thirteen to december two thousand fourteen when that taper was in full effect crude oil in half okay so just from a technical perspective right now. Crude oil right now is broken that trend. That's been in place since the lows about a year ago or so and so technically it seems in a tough spot especially right now when the world is kind of grappling with delta variant. And maybe we're seeing less demand for your karen. That's what i think it is. i think it's delta variant. I think that you know when you have commodities and just a little bit of pulled back on demand commodities are commodities obviously so a little less demand means prices can really move especially as a commodity producers are gearing up making more. So that's what it seems to me. I'm not sure how to fit together. The very strong jobs number. That's not cover for the fed at all and yet this commodity action that is and the delta varian and the number of cases and the number of that is some cover for the fed.

Let's go ahead and take care of them. Put them away but the rest of us have got to go out and achieve herd immunity. It is clear that this vaccine cannot achieve immunity. It never was going to achieve community and now it does appear that it's going to stop symptoms. But what you have to know is you're gonna have to now decide how you're going to walk on this planet. Are you going to walk around in a has matt soon or are you going to take on the risk. That eighties told us of that point.

Maybe some denied all of those treatments to seem to be working. And every study. That i can find. I'm gonna use those when i catch this going to stay home. Did not spread it to those. That might be vulnerable. But in the end we never hit permit and no vaccine protected us from it.

You're gonna have lifetime immunity to as soon as you catch the virus which is going to happen to you. That's it all you did. Was him back seat. It didn't even really lower your symptoms that appears and now you're still going to have to catch the virus in order to get to that immunity that we're all seeking on this planet so we can get on with our lives. The only thing holding us back is anything we're doing to keeping ourselves from ending up catching cove. It is going to have to happen. I would recommend you start doing your research on the treatments gonna use when it happens you and i'm talking to both of you. I'm not selective vaccinated or unvaccinated noah treatment.

Are these so-called breakthrough cases in san antonio this shoot family was fully vaccinated but four out of five family members got breakthrough infections their symptoms mild or none at all for that. They credit the vaccine. I'm very thankful we got about how bad it could have been. If we had not had this loose in our immune system we could have ended up hospital. Why is that partially. Because the delta varian is so easily transmissible partially because there is no such thing as a one hundred percent effective vaccine and even though these vaccines are holding up well even against the delta varian. That doesn't mean that we're not going to be hearing about breakthrough cases. Now what you asked about. Does it mean you're less likely to spread the virus. Less likely to get seriously ill. It appears that that is the case. The level of virus in the nasal airings of the vaccinated person is considerably less with does appear the people who are fully vaccinated if they are infected with kovic nineteen there would be less likely that vaccinated breakthrough person would transmit compared to an unvaccinated person. They are less likely to spread the virus to others and they are less likely to become seriously ill. That doesn't mean though.

You can do that. There's a lot of layered approaches that you can you can take It's going to depend somewhat on the ages of the Children, whether or not that masks are going to be be warranted. But that's also something where locals will have some say in it, and parents have a choice. Even if the school is saying that masks are not mandated required there. There is an option for anyone to put on their child who feels it's the right thing to do. How about parents who are still hesitant to get their kids vaccinated? Of course, under 12 not vaccinated yet we're seeing young people who are still resistant. We're seeing political splits in who's going to be taking vaccines. How do you convince the skeptical at this point? Yeah, You know, as a pediatrician, I've spent a lot of time talking to parents about vaccines, some who are skeptical.

"Concerning turn to the Corona virus Pandemic. ABC is Monaco SOB. He has more growing concerns about variants of the Corona virus. The New York Times reports. Doctors have now found seven variants of the virus. It originated in the US spotlighting the urgent need for better tracking of cases and mutations. All of these various had the same exact mutation Now. That could just be a coincidence. But some researchers are worried that could this mean that the virus is getting smarter and adapting. Until now, scientists have been studying mutations discovered in other countries. The South African strain, which is more resistant to vaccines and the UK Varian, which is more contagious and therefore be more deadly. The absolute risk is still low. They compare two groups, so it's still too early to say it was more deadly, but it's certainly more contagious. It comes amid a major drop in overall cases across the country. About 71,000. New infections were reported yesterday compared to last month, when the country saw more than 225,000 daily cases. As a result, more states are easing restrictions in Minnesota dining capacity has been increased to 50% extending hours that eating establishments and bars could be open. We're expanding some of those capacities up to 250 in Washington.

But the head of the CDC is warning Americans now is not the time to let our guard down. We're nowhere out of the woods.

Dr. Fauci predicts "open season" for vaccinations in April

"April it will be open season for covert vaccinations in this country. A B C's Mark Millar joining us on the co Moh news line to explain what does that exactly mean? And what's it say about supplies? Mark? Yes. Oh, doctor catching on NBC's Today show this morning. Did that open season and basically what he said. That means is by we get by the time we get to into April and the end of April. We're going to start seeing the kind of vaccine supply that will allow us to get to these levels where virtually everyone can get vaccinated now, he said. Logistically, it may still take several months to complete. Vaccinations for that many people so we may still have Somewhat of a supply crunch compared to the demand, but I think what he was getting at there is right now we're in these tears and phases of who's eligible to get vaccines and what he's saying is, by the time we're getting into April in late April, we might be in the general public area of Virtually anyone is eligible to go get a vaccination. It's just a question of whether or not we have the millions of doses to supply for the potentially hundreds of millions of people who would be eligible and willing to get a vaccine at that point, So he says the case is really going to ramp up because we're gonna see the supply ramp up over the next couple months into April, and he said that he hopes The vast majority of Americans can be vaccinated by the time we get to mid end of summer. How many are being administered now? Mark so, the U. S is ramping up and has been ramping up the pace of vaccinations. And right now the U. S has now, according to Ah planning document from the Department of Health and Human Services, the U. S has now hit Seven day average for daily doses administered on that number is now 1,555,959 shots a day. So we have now hit that 1.5 million. A day shot total that President Biden had called for. Obviously, that puts us on a good track for us reaching that 100 million shots and his 1st 100 days, which some you know, had said was kind of a low goal, a low bar that it could have been higher, but we're making progress in that direction and shots are ramping up and that's good news. Dr Fauci have any cautions for people? Not when it came to that vaccines. Now he did say that they're watching the variance that have been coming around the UK Varian in particular is spreading quite rapidly here in the U. S. Though, he said mass are effective against it, as well as the vaccines that we currently have. Hey, also was asked about You know this. This lingering question about Can you if you get vaccinated? Can you go see your family? Are you safe to do that? And he said ultimately, yes, but the goal would be to have both parties vaccinated And the reason being is let's say your grandmother or you know, someone you know is vaccinated. Well, they could go and meet you. They could still get Kobe Ed. If you're not wearing masks, and you're not social distancing. They could still get cold it in their nasal cavity, essentially and from there potentially spread it to others, So the risk may not be so much. Them, but the ability for them to spread it So again. The goal here is to have both parties vaccinated. But that was kind of his parting piece of advice here. A PC's Mark Rommel or thank you, Mark. You bet. Thank you.

I think you'll be very interested as listeners to stay with us today. Because you're going to hear one of the greatest comebacks that human being can make so dave maybe for the listeners. I think it'd be helpful for a moment. Is you and i are gonna talk a lot today. About the skill set that you learned in the military and and how both of us are proponents of of people that have served in the military. The leadership skills that they learned at young ages and how they are beneficial to organizations to others. If you think about it. Dave when you're in the military what were some of the skills that as as a leader they cultivate it for you. One of the greatest runs on today thug. If the question is is able to adopt under stunning new situations reactivity Quite clearly in a number of areas throughout the military including the battlefield. Something incredibly important so basically you have to understand that adapted the environmentally put in ambulances create overcome the challenges. They ran through also with relevance to the komo parent. You know the the ability to Come under conversation passive mation and down the chain of command that whether you wanna call it that in the commercial weld or otherwise. I'm with a great many to the military. Individuals can nets on time in service when they come out into the commercial wealth. You know there's three things that you just talked about that. I need to recap you mealy for people because this that talk about you know dealing with new situations anniversary my god we all around the world dealing with this right now and then overcoming challenges and i love what you said though about the command a conversation i heard you speak to a large group and you were talking about a subject matter that will cover then about just mental health mental wellbeing and making comebacks. After after you know crisis befalls us and i remember that day being able to be honored to be able to introduce you to the group and i saw how quickly you took command of that conversation and delivered a message. You didn't always had that confidence that you know certainly didn't on a thing that's it's a as you grow and develop Learn how humans behave. I'm so as you believed to. Number at songs stroke The subject matter of that particular conversational speech was straight straight on. The onset was going to be quite an emotional rollercoaster for both myself on the audience. That will listen to the idea of bringing in element of human but will show the understanding. Why out that yes. This is happened. There are things that move around outside of that they can use in driving develop show throughout the learnings walk could be considered particularly bad experiences in your life. Yeah no thanks i. I'll take you and i to a place now and then we'll have a discussion. Because i think it's it's something listeners can really resonate with many people you and i were standing next to each other at the special forces club here in london and we were sharing with other other military leaders. They were talking about their stories and and different campaigns and just the whole history of the special forces club. You had look on your face that evening. And that's when you told me the story about when you served and and some of the difficulties that you face maybe for the listeners. If you don't mind just recapping. The loss of of comrades so thousand fourteen was one of the way she is. My life is something i read. Every single day as you're well aware now of the experiences in afghanistan by varian in integration severity of goals on joan time over there we lost an aircraft them with five people in a single single events which was the said where single loss of life in the history of the conflict the lasted aftermath beyond it is still going on so they stay quite glady difficult. Speak to balance but it is something out on all signs it. Just keep moving forward in an interview to development the growth. You know the guy is. It does on his shoulders. Health needs to yourself food.

On Brexit and Coronavirus, Boris Johnson Leaves It Late

"Johnson, called an emergency meeting this morning. A variant of the corona virus is spreading in the UK and scientists say it could be much more infectious. In the original. Other European countries, including France, Ireland and Italy, have now banned travel to and from the UK and here's Matt Handcock, Britain's health secretary, Talking in the B B C yesterday. The new variant is out of control when we need to bring it under control, and this news about the new variant has been a Um, incredibly difficult. And, frankly, in awful year, NPR's Frank Langfitt is just outside of London. Hey, Frank. Hey. Good morning, Doyle. So you have a travel ban. You have a lockdown in some parts of the UK It is sounding a lot like March and April with respect to isolation. It does. It feels very much more isolated than it did even just a few days ago here on the island of Great Britain. Now France has gone further and say no trucks coming from Britain across the English Channel on fairies. The Euro tunnel, which runs under the channel is also closed. This seems to be a precautionary measure for about 48 hours. There's a lot of concern now around the Christmas season. We've already seen backups at the port of Dover, 20. Miles long. And what's been happening is people are trying to get freight across the channel before the deadline for the Brexit transition period, which is going to end on New Year's Eve. Right now we have truckers stranded on both sides of the water and the on Lee. Good news, I'd say is that shipping containers, which are the majority of trade, they're still moving, because, of course, they're not people driving the shipping containers. Okay, let's establish something that scientists say often, which is that to say often, which is that viruses do mutate. We expect them to why our government scientists in the U. K so concerned about this particular mutation. I think a couple of reasons. One is that it quickly became the dominant version in this part of England, where I am out in London and beyond. And that's not a big problem. We saw that with the Spanish virus, not over the summer when people tourist brought it back from Spain, the problem and and in London, for instance, right now, this new Varian about over 60% of the virus is found. In London. The problem is that this domination is coinciding with exponential growth of the virus in these areas. Scientists now believe it could be up to 70% more infectious than the various mutations that are floating around this country. And that's why I think you're seeing the dramatic response of these European neighbors. And, of course, the lockdown that we have here in London. One important good news so far is there's no sign that this mutation Has more severe symptoms or or is more deadly. Okay, That's some good news. What about scientists outside of Britain? Are they expressing concern about this? They are the ones that I've talked to particularly last 24 hours, vaccine expert and epidemiologist. They don't like the data they're seeing either. This is Emma Hot Cross. She's an epidemiologist who studies coronavirus mutations of the University of Baron in Switzerland. This is what she said this morning. I do think that it's concerning And I don't say that very lightly. Certainly, as evidence has gathered with this new variant, it does seem like there might be an increased transmissibility. And so I do think we need to start being quite cautious about what we're doing about it. And as you said earlier, Frank, the timing here is really messy because Britain still hasn't been able to strike a free trade deal with the European Union. Time runs out on New Year's Eve. This can't make anything easier, Can it No, It just makes things even worse, And I don't think people would have even imagined that this was likely to happen. There's the great risk. If there's no deal on free trade, there's no free trade deal. We see customs and tariffs going up in Dover. Right now. Trucks aren't even crossing the English Channel. So it could be even more disruptive than what we imagined would do a lot more economic damage on both sides of the channel. NPR's Frank Langfitt. Thanks, Frank, great to talk to him. The

What we know - and what we don't - about the new coronavirus variant

"Normal for viruses to mutate. So how alarms should we be about the emergence of this highly infectious variant of the Corona virus, which is now prevalent in southern England, and if the variant is that much easier to transmit? How do you stop? It spread both within the UK and around the rest of the world On Sundays, its impact was starting to be felt. Britain's Health secretary Matt Hancock said people had to act as if they all had. Variant. The new variant is out of control when we need to bring it under control, and this news about the new variant has been a Um, incredibly difficult and, frankly, an awful year on bond. It's important for everybody to act essentially act like they might have the virus. And that's the way that we can control it together. It's not something for government or individuals. It's something for us all to do together. But could this you vary into the coronavirus also Be resistant to the vaccines that have been developed to counter the existing strain. I've been speaking to Dr Lucy Van Dorf, senior research fellow in Microbial Genomic, said the UCL Genetics Institute. What's name for certain about this virus mutation at the moment. What we know is we have a variant in circulation, which is carrying 14 defining mutations, which we haven't seen in the combination we see in this particular variant before This includes seven within the spike protein off the Corona virus, which is the protein that's most important for binding and entering human cells. One of the reasons that this has raised some concern, it's because some of these previously identified mutations have been implicated. In having some kind of biological relevant So the vast majority of mutations we have in this virus and and mutations are very much a natural process and this thousands of variance in circulation have no impact. But in this case we do have sets of mutations, which have been flagged as may be relevant. So are important in terms of the ability of the virus to bind to human cells, and also potentially for some degree of communication. And so this is one of the reasons together with the A marked increase in frequency of this particular Varian within the UK that scientists are studying it really very carefully right as we speak. But what makes this

"Ideas beyond what I'm going to sell it robbed me of the writing and it's interesting I noticed in so I'm three full weeks into this process with my coach and the the first week. I was my brain was so stuck. My brain was on Facebook right was fried and I couldn't get out of thought and so I finally get some thoughts out and get some thoughts out and in this issue section of this book and I just dumped the story dump dump dump the story and I noticed the last couple of days. I've actually gone back and I've been able to instead of my brain reaching for wage just phrases that everybody uses I was writing about when my husband left and I I put a note to myself one night said tomorrow Allison Allison really go back in your mind not in your heart and your body to that night when you left what did you feel because before there was just some some phrase that we all used. And so I've noticed that my neurons firing again. My synapses are getting longer. My attention span is getting longer. My attention span books is getting longer and all of these things are useful in my life my energy and my prediction and what's funny is when I started I wasn't necessarily inspired. My friend Varian is watching this or was watching this and Varian talks about listening to promptings and I am just spoken with my Mastermind clients that I had a lot of extra space in my business and it my life and you know in the past I would fill it with this and you know really trying to hone in on what habit could I fill in some of that empty space that would create the most impact and the song the greatest emotional and profitable and joyful leverage and it was the habit of writing and reading When I write and read instead of scroll on Facebook now when I write let me finish that one. When I write and read instead of scrolling on Facebook, I am back for my clients. I am better for my husband. I am better for my family and it's it's been fascinating. So I want you to nurture your inspired action and thoughts. I want you to consider what habits are you engaging in right now that are not useful and that are possibly depleting your energy or finances home. And if you weren't in those habits, so the question that I asked myself the other day was you know, I've really gotten habitual about the news and politics and and I have a line where it's healthy and useful and I have a line where it's not and I had been engaging over that line. And so I asked myself the question it was like, what would I be spending my time? On if I weren't Crossing about politics and I was like, oh my energy and emotion would be on reading and writing and coaching..

This is Bloomberg is his Bloomberg BusinessWeek with Carol Master and Jason Kelly from Bloomberg Radio. Hello, I'm Jason Kelly put ahead for you in this hour of the weekend edition of Bloomberg BusinessWeek, including Georgetown University professor. My all my mater proud to have her on the show, Marsha Chatelaine. She's got a new book. It's called franchise, The Golden Arches in Black America. Incredibly timely. A look at one of the best known companies. In the world, and certainly the United States. McDonald's its role in the struggle for racial equality. Plus, we'll hear from Stanford graduate School of Business Teen Jonathan Levin and associate Dean Sara Soul about that same issue. Stanford. It's the number one business school, according to Bloomberg. BusinessWeek, Carol, master of my partner and I had been there the last couple years to talk about what they're doing well, they've got a new plan as it relates to racial equity. And speaking of Carol, Master, You're not here here this week. She's on vacation. But you will hear Scarlett food throughout these conversations. She was nice enough to join me throughout the week on our daily Bloomberg BusinessWeek radio show. Let's begin this hour with our business. We cover story. Economics Editor Peter Khoi writes. I'm quoting here. Pandas and white rhinos aren't the only creatures that are unsuccessful at maybe in captivity. Yeah, he's talking about human beings. He's talking about us as Americans. The U. S. Could see 500,000 fewer birth next year. That, of course, will have strong repercussions long after the pandemic is over, especially on the economy. Peter and the editor of magazine. Jill Weber joined us with this story. Peter and I started talking about this. You brought a sense of demographics earlier in the year on DH, then you know we started this lock down thing, and we kept talking about it cause I was like, man, there might be a lot of babies that come out of this. And so we kind of stuck with that. And then it sort of went the other way. And where we expected to be a baby boom ended up being more of a baby bust. Eh? So we called you know six columnist slash economist Peter Coy and asked him to do that. So, Peter, can you walk us through? What? What? You what you were able to discover as you were reporting the story. Yes, I mean, As you said, You didn't get a chance to put a lot of babies on the cover. But I think they came out okay anyway, because we came up with a good story line, which is not only is there a decline in fertility future pregnancies. But it's Means that it's probably not gonna be made up after we're out of the recession. The pandemic. So that the consequences will be long lasting, You know, Think about it. Babies who are not born in 2020 are people who will not be alive in the 22nd century. I mean, this is this is in a way. In some ways the number of missing people from the population because of the declining birth is bigger. The number of missing people from the population from deaths from Covina And it's in. Those numbers are actually worth just kind of dwelling on for a second, because we're up to like 1 50 deaths in the U. S now, but it could be a number a number as high as 500,000. Babies that are not born next year. A great at least looking yes. Booking. OK, so some staggering numbers there. But when you think about it when you take a step back Policy is not aligned with having kids. They are damn expensive and sorry for for just swearing there, But you are on your own to find child care, educational, expensive health care. I mean people When they get health care, they don't want to leave it Then. Of course, there's the motherhood penalty and fatherhood penalty and very rarely. Do you see middle class families with more than three kids, Peter Was the birth rate rising or was it holding up pretty well before the pandemic? The U. S had been known for a long time for having unusually high fertility rates compared to other wealthy nations. A CZ recently is 2007. It was 2.1 Children for women. Woman, which is replacement rate If you if you have that rate the US population stable over time. But it started falling in the last recession. Remember that one here and then it didn't recover afterward as people had expected. It's down to under 1.7 in 2019. Who knows gonna go even lower now, so it's not as low as that of say, Japan, South Korea, Western Europe, But it's it's definitely below replacement rate. And now this comes along. And that magic number Peter for sort of a population is 2.1 on DH. It was the walk us through. Ah, why that number matters. That's where the U. S is now and what implications that has for growth. Well, just think about it. Each couple is imagine you have Ah, Married couple. They produced two Children replace themselves. Reason has to be more than two. Is that not everybody will survive to adulthood and have Children of their own. So it's a little over two. And in whether I said were down around 1.7 now in the U. S. You have countries like Russia mentioned South Korean. So on there down a 1.3 area actually came back a little bit, But, yeah. 1.3.

Speaking of vacation continues to be unfortunately, One of the industry's hit hardest by the pandemic. International travel, of course, is one of the areas that is suffering mightily. We'll trabajo CEO Axl have thought he was back with us. He joined us from Germany to talk about why, and we started by asking him about his backyard in Germany is, unfortunately significantly better than what we've seen lost earnings. So there is quite a bit of travel activity. The help situation is relatively speaking, stable. And just to give you give you an idea If we compare the travel environment in Germany, all leisure nature destinations like beaches and mountains are getting close to laugh Volume where city trips and international are around 50% so still significantly down. That is incredible. I just think about how many people here. Jason's working from home. So many of our colleagues are working from home. No one's taken any time off in the last 45 months because you're working from home. You want to stay productive. You're just grateful to have a job at this point, Axel. Who is taking these vacations are companies granting vacations the way they were every year. Yeah, I mean, people are taking vacations. But and and in particular families, obviously desperate and this difficult situation to also get some rest in the summer, which is something that you see across Europe but not to the same mixed and then in Germany. And I think to be honest, and particularly in a situation where a lot of people are working from home with all the stress that is related to that it is important to take a break and we, for example, I have. Ah, have basically introduced a mandatory vacation of one week in August for employees to make sure that they do get some rest and also to take some time off. Well, I wondered about that Axel sort of the running of the company because I was so we talked to you so much about sort of what you're seeing in terms of trends and travel on on the parts of so many people around the world, But I do wonder like what the challenges have been for you running your operation. I am physically well, where to start the in march. Basically, our revenue collapsed to close the bureau in April and at that point in time, clearly, I mean, your initially obviously in paralysis, So so what is going on? What? Watch how we do and the thought that it was really helpful to us that we very early on accepted that travel would disappear at these temporarily and dedicate How will the world look in the future and we we define three favors off recovery? No traveling, some travelling with restrictions, which they could be where we are right now. And then when you normal whatever that will look like and work backwards instead, Okay? What do we need to do for the traveler for custom A And what do we need to prepare for?.

I'm Susanna Palmer, This is Bloomberg. Vases Masters in business with very results on Bloomberg Radio. My special guest this week is Simon Hallet. He is the co chief investment officer at Harding loved her. A firm that manages about $73 billion in assets. He is also the majority owner of Plymouth Argyle Off Football Club located in the UK Simon Halit. Welcome to Masters in business. Thank you for having me, Barry. So let's talk a little bit about your background. You earn your B a at Oxford, and then you begin working in the financial services industry in London in the early 19 eighties. Tell us about that era. It was actually the late seventies. I graduated in 1977 and went to work for The Midland Bank, which was then one of the big full clearing banks in England. In the earlier since I moved to investment management, the investing that's in Hong Kong. And mother that was nearer of high interest rates, who was just coming off the financial crisis of the mid sentence. On When I moved to Hong Kong. We were just beginning in a property collapse on news there in 1981 of the property market collapsed in 90 in some of that year. Theo oil price of 32 who was about to go for an half a swell So it was an era really of continuous Chrissie as far as I was concerned Hong Kong in the 19 eighties. That had to be a house of fire, though, because Hong Kong was really ramping up there with a gateway to Asia, not just Japan, but China and, ah, lot of the rest of Asia. What was your experience is like in Hong Kong? Well, it was the first time I traveled anywhere has ever been to France. So everything about it was tremendously exciting. As you say it was a great time to be in Hong Kong. It was a few years before the restoration began to open up. But Hong Kong itself has just had a massive expansion in population as a result of Immigration from China After the misery of England in the 19 seventies. It was just amazing to be surrounded by people who also lived in great poverty, having just arrived from China. But being left to their own devices to better their lives almost always successfully. So what do you make of what's been going on with Hong Kong the past few years? Not only since the handover from UK But increasingly aggressive Beijing policy towards Tonka. I find it horrifying. You know, Hong Kong was very much left to its own devices. I thought that the sign of British joint Declaration in the mid 19 eighties I was going to be a treaty that guaranteed the independence of Hong Kong. Clearly, that's being overcome. And I think it's not gonna be good for Hong Kong is the place and I worry about the future of the people that I know who was still there and the rest of the population. I don't think it's going to be healthy for for Uncle quite interesting, so Let's talk a little bit about your investing style. You're essentially a bottoms up fundamental stock picker since we're talking about the macro landscape. Do you ignore What's going on in the background? Does it not enter the calculus? Or does that force you to modify The sectors and cos you're considering. No, we try very hard to ignore it where investment people So you know, we're kind of curious about the world and we're opinionated. So we have opinions about the macroeconomic environment, but we try very hard not to Let it influence awful photos. I actually like Tio put something that you wrote for five years ago, when you were asked about the economy and what you think. You know, you think you know your basic conservation? Why would you ask me? Why do you think that my forecasts have any value on while you take forecasts themselves of any value, and that's pretty much the view that we take. No. The academic studies suggest this article correlation between Let's say GDP on stock market returns..

Causality 101 with Robert Ness

"I am on the line with Robert Osa Zoa Ness Robert is a machine learning research engineer at Gammel on and an instructor at northeastern North Eastern University Robert and I met at the last nerves conference where he had an accepted poster session around his paper integrating hitting Markov processes with structural. Causal Modeling Enables counterfactual inference in complex systems which he also presented at the black doc in a in a workshop This kicked off a bunch of great conversations between the two of US leading ultimately to collaboration. That we'll talk a little bit about in this conversation. Robert thanks so much for joining me on the Tuomo. Ai podcast thanks for having me Sam. You're injured us. It makes me think I should've. It came up with more clever name for that paper. You know what a lot of papers we talk about on. This show are quite the mouthful so yours is no exception exception Maybe someone will build a model. You know that. seeks to determine a inverse correlation or correlation between the lengthiness papers the title and It's number of citations or something like that. Let's set that aside for now and have you spent a few minutes introducing yourself. How did you get started in machine learning what piqued your interest You know ultimately will be spending a lot of time here talking about causality. How did you come to Become interested in that you know my path to machine learning was a bit. I'd say unconventional I started off working In Asia Tanna specifically I was the degree at Hopkins in International Studies and was planning adding to pursue a degree in economic In economics focusing on economic development I got involved with some Internet companies out in Beijing That got me into coding. And database is in data in general and I decided I was interested in in debt in that and went to apply for programs in statistics. Particularly with a focus on computational statistics I back to the states came back to the states went to Purdue University to do my PhD in stats My PhD work was on causal. Inference graphical models Basically how to learn causal models from data particularly in the context of systems systems biology and from then after I graduated I went to trade industry. Got It now. We hear very frequently folks refer to their path into machine learning as unconventional are indirect In your case you came into an interesting gaming net leads you to apply live for Or into Grad School for statistic. What was that particular connection really? It's when you're on the back end of an APP and you're looking at the data and you're realizing that there's a lot of insights to be had if only we could model this data and turn it into some service on the front end Um I realized I mean this was you know people had were just kinda starting to talk about data science and then Hell Varian had just recently came out and said I said that's the districts is the new sexiest will. I can't remember the exact quote was pick your Metaphor Metaphor New Black statistics is the new. I don't know Rockstar and so And Yeah that's that's kind of why pivoted to do the two stats in machine. Learning I guess through stats view. May people might argue whether or not stats machine. Learning Are same thing. Might the problems that I was working on my PhD or using Publicity graphical models so which has strong roots in artificial intelligence. So that was my introduction machine learning. Yeah one of the things that's come up in our conversations about causality and The work that you're doing with your courses is the idea that it historically talking about causality has been the you know the domain of statisticians and in Yeah folks like economists And that a lot of that conversation is inaccessible or isn't really tailored to do the needs of developers and data scientists machine learning engineers. I didn't realize all the time we were talking about that. That your background wasn't economics. You you have some of the exposure to the way that causality is has been traditionally kind of us and talked about. Maybe I guess I'll just use this as a segue to Kind of opening up the floor to to ask you. What how do you define causality? The interesting thing about causality may be part of why maybe is a challenging thing to deal with particularly for statisticians I would say is that. It's very difficult to talk about it without finding yourself having a philosophical conversation and you know so going you know this is something that fill in. What is the causality? These in that philosophers have been wrestling with through the ages. Right hume had has counterfactual definition initial possibility. That's you know a follows from being had a not happy would not have happened But you know philosophers going back to the Buddha all kind of take their stab at what is caused -ality so there's a different philosophical arguments for causality and what it means I think from a practical standpoint. What most people mean when they say? causal inference is. They mean the estimation of Causal Effects. So if you're safer example at a tech company and you want to run some kind of experiment about the about whether a feature will drive a click or some other key performance indicator or metric. You're asking you. Your experiment is essentially trying to get at the question of what is the causal effect of this feature on this outcome and you'll be using the assumptions and methods from Statistics to estimate assuming Air Assumptions are valid those causal effects. But when we've talked in machine learning where now hearing you know. So I hadn Europe's like you said This talk about having agents that can understand that. Causal Structure of the world and and that causes allergies essential from moving from system one system to cognition day Pearl was very preeminent. Causal inference researcher talks about causal reasoning in in terms of free will and the ability to understand Dan intention and so there are definitely definitely a lot of angles to tackle this question from the perspective of artificial intelligence is that you know people who are running experiments in facebook. Netflix are not really thinking about

A Review of 'It: Chapter 2'

"Today. We're discussing. Sometimes it comes back for you where it's more boring name it. Chapter Two starring Jessica chastain James mcevoy Bill Hater Isaiah Mustafa Jay Ryan James Ran Soon Andy Bear. Some of these people have to just be happy their names on a poster oester. I mean who the hell some of these guys the old spice guy because his name above the title and Bill Skarsgard as pennywise directed by a Andy Machete this is Arnie Coz now playing and the fun is just beginning Ed Stewart and this is the host who still insists he sees the ghost Jacob it aftermath aftermath wow as Stephen King Fan as somebody really into Stephen King around the time this came out of you. Remember dark tower came out right before this. I was actually buying a couple of Stephen King Trotsky to go on my bookshelf with all my Stephen King Books. They're made like a Jack torrens action figuring things and I'm like you know they don't make too much of this so I'll get a couple of these and put them up there. It exploded merchandising for every Stephen King thing. There's a hot wheels Christine. There are more pennywise figures that I can count what I'm not kidding. Wow Yeah so ooh many pennywise toys of all price points this has opened a floodgate on Stephen King that has never been opened before merchandising him to the Gen xers. I think so what does that mean. I mean we all know what merchandise meant and fanning the love of Star Wars. What would it mean to hold a bobblehead. Ah pennywise Ernie called GEN-X. You GotTa Buy Your Co.. POPs gets by stuff by toys by Chachis of stuff you like and Stephen King's. The big caught thing now so let's just how the market is. Is it selling yeah okay. I mean I didn't buy any of it. The moment you know what I liked about it when it was niche and there was like two things I loved it when every week. I'm getting an email this new pennywise doll for two hundred dollars. I'm like fuck it pennywise varian Syrian funk. Oh pops are there. Oh my God so many long tongue pennywise bloody pennywise smiling pennywise frowning penny wise spider pennywise okay this kind. It helps me understand why you were so into skarsgard. They've really been able to magnify what was a very small part of the film really wasn't in that many scenes and by my impression Russian he was only good in about half of them so how he has lived on in the minds of the viewer is through merchandise he made an impression he scarred us and and now two years later he's coming back to finish the job yeah and again. I'd equate to a Freddy Kruger. I'd think it's the closest thing we've had to a horror icon. In a long time and Freddie never had that much screen time it was people talking about Freddie and Robert Englund Cameo films. You know so and I think merchandising we've made every Jason we've made every Friday. Oh my God pennywise we have something new to sell but the highest grossing nightmare on Elm Street movie wouldn't begin to touch the gross of of this fill it goes well beyond the reach of a horror audience. I mean this. There were people in my neighborhood I walk my dog and churchgoing folk who I would never suspect suspect to have opened a cover of Stephen King said. Oh it's coming out soon people. I would not imagine demographics that do not see any other horror. Film are are coming out this weekend and why the impression I got was they really loved the kits. Yeah I think that I it was huge and almost every viewing was sold allow. When I went to go see this Friday night theaters packed yeah you can keep going on about penny wise and I think you're right for a certain level of people that loves horror ICONOGRAPHY. That's a thing thing but I feel like in mass. The reason why this is so beloved because it goes those children were so good and it connected to childhood so well and that's the struggle of chapter or two. I know that the kids are coming back in some role but the torch is being passed. It will now be for new actors. That didn't even have the job when the first movie he came out. What's funny is before it chapter one came out the sequel was in pre production. You know the studio knew what they had right and so when they were you're doing pre release interviews with the cast they asked the young kids who would you like to play you and Young Beverly said Jessica chastain and that kind of makes sense I mean chastain had had worked with Michetti before and I mean how many red headed actress sent me as I mean. It's either her Dallas Broward Sophie Turner from X. Expend Dark Phoenix twenty seven years later. That's great highlight store here. Maybe and then Wolford said Bill Hater. Those actually happened yeah yeah. I don't know how much they had already envisioned for chapter to win. Two years ago it blew up. They had talked about it. The whole way through one is what it was. They kept saying if we do a two. Let's leave this hook here. Let's leave this here. Let's leave this vague enough here. They knew if the movie was successful while filming part one in sixteen. If this did well we would want to bring the kids back would want to have some flashbacks but we're gonNA focus mostly on the adults and they had vague the ideas but they did never script yeah they knew the parts of the book they had left behind and so that was a lot of material is a big ass book. They could make lots of movies out of what was remaining remaining of that but they didn't have a script. They didn't have a cast again. It wasn't called Chapter One. They shape the experience as total you could just watch that movie the and be done and that was the studio's. Choice Warner Brothers did that the makers want to call it the losers club so that it had a hook there for a second one and and I think the compromise was chapter one at the end credits. I stand by that. I think that movie does work as a standalone if it had bombed and we never got chapter two I think that would still be a satisfying the movie as far as the art goes and I appreciate that I like it when movies tell a story instead of teas another film to come out at some other point I also think I think that there is a lot of ret conning done in the film. We're here to talk about today. Oh yeah they didn't create a first chapter that set up a lot of things they're we're going to do in this film. That's why there's so many flashbacks yeah they had to correct it by bringing the kids back and they did d. h. them with CGI because kids at that age you know two three years later look very different. I noticed height differences. I noticed like some who were shorter than beverly in part one out taller than beverly only in part to but they made the faces look younger yeah. I noticed that at times. They look a little bit plastics. Oh okay that makes sense because they D- aged Regata de age. These teenage kids not only like that but I noticed some of the lip sync work. That ain't his voice. You know your voice changes to three years later. They can't say the lines like they would've in the summer of one thousand nine hundred nine so oh yeah you just get people that kinda sound like them but are not them. Jack Dillon Grazer was the one who looked most distracting to me like for some reason his face just look blake an old man made into a child and but this is expected to be huge based off the first one I mean the first one broke records chapter. Two is breaking a record. It's the Whitest ever released for an R rated film with over forty five hundred screens in the US alone and they were saying hundred ten million two hundred twenty million this weekend. It's already falling short of expectations though it is it made less in preview screenings than the first film. It's estimated now. It's going to make less over the weekend than the first film. What did the first film do. The first film got one hundred thirty five million the first weekend. I guess I didn't see that opening weekend side there. Wasn't the big crowd. I didn't realize I was so big right away. I thought that kind of had a slow burn so it's looking like this will be perhaps second-biggest and they're now readjusting estimates down to ninety ninety million. Maybe as low as eighty million compared to one hundred thirty five million for the sequel. I gotta think some of it is you don't see kids and is not an eighties period piece. The nostalgia culture isn't there to draw in the big audiences. I know when I saw it chapter one opening weekend. Neri empty seat in the house. When I saw this opening night it was about a two thirds full on the APP but a lot of people didn't show up like all the seats around me were Phil on the APP and people just didn't come. I think that's the result of that. AMC stubs premier as you can buy tickets for no money so you reserve seats and like I'm decided not to go interesting house in the same screening as you Arnie for Thursday I max we didn't see each other until after after it was all over with but I did also go back and saw matinee on Friday. There was almost nobody there so I have not had the experience that this is something the masses asses are turning out to but the numbers are saying something different even at one hundred million if that's less than expected. That's an amazing opening. That's huge yeah for an R rated Orville. Matt is amazing and like I said packed when I saw it. I do wonder when the reviews started coming out and I always avoid reuse but you always see headlines in that. There were some concerns turns and I wonder if that scares some people away like they were not buzzing like with chapter one. I didn't hear anything I didn't see any reviews before going in but this movie cost cost twice as much as the first one bigger actors in it so if it makes less this one costs seventy million dollars they had budget built in for de aging kids and they had named named actors who we know and some of whom need to redeem themselves from an earlier x men film this summer and needs a show they still can do good budget built in so they didn't have that crap. Raffia from the TV series and it's also longer they can't screen it as many times in a day because it adds. It feels like another hour. It's not quite that it's more more like forty five minutes but still it's two hours fifty minutes. It's almost three hours. We're talking to vendors level length here well. The first chapter one was also over two two hours but this goes beyond that by at least forty minutes so again for lots of reasons. If you know the book and hold the opinion I do the best stuff.

"Abortion. I believe that the laws passed in Georgia is unconstitutional, and Varian bigamous, then I have an obligation to protect the citizens of my community. I want to ask you a parson question, but I think it matters to people's lives. And I think our viewers will be interested in it. So forgive me an advance, but legally are you taking the position, then that unless and until the supreme court clearly upholds this new law? You won't enforce it or you taking the position that even if the supreme court alternately blessed this law, you would decline to use your prosecutorial power to ever enforce it. Well, I will say this prosecutors, we have discretion to make decisions about the laws that we prosecute, for example, in Georgia, it's still against the law to commit adultery and I'm certainly not spending my time prosecuting people for adultery. I believe that my community has spoken and I believe that. There are many crimes in my community that stand far and more potent than what's happening, honestly, in the bedrooms of DeKalb county residents. As a woman in a mother have grave concerns about this type of law here in Georgia, and everywhere, it's very interesting where you're laying out, I guess my final question I'm curious. Are you hearing reaction from this either pressure in government or public reaction? I've heard a lot of reaction from my community. I've gotten emails and phone calls and tweets and I can tell you overwhelmingly what I'm hearing from the women and men in my community is thank you for standing up for speaking for being a voice and for alternate -ly saying that I have no intent of putting people in jail and saddling them with felony convictions for seeking a medical procedure and choosing really how they want their families to be district. Attorney Sherri, Boston very interesting. Thank you for explaining you're thinking, does tonight. Thank you. Really appreciate it. I want to viewers tomorrow. Democrats will be holding this pivotal meeting on impeachment and pressure on Pelosi, and we'll get to one more thing. We come back. There's a lot going on in Washington tomorrow, and I will be there long with the beat speaker Pelosi holding this closed-door meeting with her entire democratic caucus, we've been told Democrats will be bringing up the impeachment debate. Maybe pressuring her all also be interviewing key player in all of it. Intel chairman Adam Schiff, this is part of the center for American progress, ideas, conference, asking him a lot of questions. And I'll bring you any news. He makes on the beat that night also in New York tomorrow, a federal judge hearing arguments about Trump's attempt to prevent major to major banks and releasing his financial records a follow on that case that he lost already now that does it for the beat tonight.

"varian" Discussed on Science Friday

"So we thought that was interesting particularly just because he was such a leader in the field. And we started looking for ourselves and ended up writing a story about. It in September of two thousand eighteen Jit you're suggesting it wasn't really hard to find out that he had some of these potential conflicts in that he wasn't really disclosing them, right? Some of them are easy and some of them were harder. But but the the first place that we looked and and. You know, that we were surprised that the you know, that he had gone so long without disclosing because some of this was so simple to look up was a federal database called open payments and on that database anyone can can enter a doctor's name, and and see a list of payments that that doctors that the drug companies and device companies pay doctors, and that wasn't all of the I can get into the details about how that's not everything. But it, but it showed us that he had some significant relationships with major drug companies that weren't being reported. Maybe can talk more about the types of conflicts, we're talking about and maybe even just describe what we mean by conflicts here because I think a lot of people who aren't in this field might not understand what a conflict is that should be disclosed. Sure yet. And there's there's a wide range of relationships that that doctors researchers will have with drug companies and just stepping back a little bit. A lot of people will say, yeah, there's nothing wrong with it. And in fact, some collaboration with the. Industry is really necessary. I mean after all the drug and the device industries are the ones that bring us our new medications and our new devices, and all of the things that are lifesaving that we as a society really need. And of course, we would expect those companies to be consulting with the leading scientific researchers. I mean, that's something that I think everyone wants. But the the issue that that we looked at with disclosure and transparency. You know, how how much are these these researchers disclosing these relationships, and how much are they getting paid? And in what form so there's a range of of types of relationships. There's consulting relationships where they get paid a stripe straight payment for for work that they do there's a lot of work. And this is something that we ended up reporting on quite a bit that that doctors do as startups, and and those are not as easily discovered that some of those relationships and often those are also in the form of things like stock options ownership equity equity stakes. Not just straightforward payments. And I'm the those are probably the main areas, there's you know, there's there's they're speaking engagements. There's there's all kinds of interactions that that doctors have with drug companies the role right up to people serving on boards of drug companies which into a real conflict of interest because they're supposed to do right by their university or the research facility. But they've also if the her a member of a board of a company they've also got to do right by shareholders. That's right. And that's a key issue that we ended up looking more closely at so Dr Salga who was the first article that we wrote about was on the board of two publicly traded companies. He was on the board of Bristol Myers Squibb, drug company and Varian medical systems, which is which makes radiation equipment. Both of those are are involved in the cancer field. And here he is a top executive at Memorial Sloan Kettering, and when you serve on the board of a company as you pointed out, you have a federal -ciary duty to to that. Company. And so the question that we asked is is is that a conflict of interest. When you are, you know, when you're a top leader at a nonprofit medical center, Memorial Sloan Kettering, and you also on the board of a publicly traded company. What has happened at Sloan Kettering since your articles came out?.

"Do the pilot, and they are fantastic's of the three of us pretty much manage the day to day of the show, including all of the writing staff, and I write well last year, I wrote nine of the twenty three episodes that we did last year either wrote or co wrote and then this year, I'm probably going to write I think when the time is all said and done I'll have written five or six, and but general. Speaking, the scripts will go through my computer at some point Varian Andrea when they write scripts, I don't I really don't do a lot on there as they they know the characters very well. And we're we're just kind of Kismet together the three of us. And then we also have a writer Michael O'Shea has been on for four years and rarely to we end up having to polish up his scripts now, some of the newer writers. We might end up, you know, doing a polish or helping out on. But I I do a lot of writing so total number words. It's still huge number of words. Yeah. I mean, when you think each script is probably fifty pages fifty one right in there that I do, and then we also have outlines that we write that are twelve page single spaced outlines. And then on top of that. I write books that are every two years. I come out with the book that's around sixty five thousand words, and then there's the occasional, you know. Right. A help somebody out on a movie or one of those. Kind of things this year dick wolf asked me to help out on his other new show FBI. So for episodes eight on I've been helping on do that one. I've written a couple of those spare time has your spare time. All right. So I think this perception though, that show runners tend to be just like people say, yes, or no people who sorta let's see the big picture stuff, but you're actually really getting into roller sleeves and typing stuff. Yeah. I don't think that's true. At least amongst the show runners. I know it's less of that. And more of you. You are the final arbiter of what's going to be shot, which means the script and the casting and it's a less of. Yes. And no and more of let me get in there. And and do the nitty gritty the actors. They they like it when the show runners writing the show, the look at the script and say, oh, this is Derek script. So yeah. So let's try to offer some practical advice for writers who were getting started on their year's work and talk about some macro ideas. We're getting. Ridden and some micro ideas. So on the back row level, really how are you planning your year ahead of writing and your months in the weeks, but on a yearly level you guys have tense that there's going to be twenty two episodes right of the show. And so right. You know, there's probably eight nine months of solid writing to be done there. And so, you know, you cannot be planning on you're not going to do a feature right during that time it at one hundred percent of your time is spent doing that. Right. So I because of that I have a rigid structure that I have to do. I mean, the great thing about television in the hard thing about television as that you're in you're in prep on one you're shooting one episode your imposed on another and the train doesn't stop from June. First is when we start in the writer's room till the end of April. We have about two months that we don't work well, month and a half. And so, you know, we've written were on episode fourteen start shooting tomorrow of twenty two we know we're going to have twenty two this year..
