"The history making day it was this week in Congress House Democrats electing New York congressman. Hakeem Jeffries as their leader. He's actually the first black lawmaker of either party to lead a party in Congress. House Democrats fight for the people. That's our story. That's our legacy. That's our values. That's our commitment as we move forward. This won't in WTO V Capitol Hill correspondent Mitchell Miller was more about the leadership change this week. Hakeem Jeffries has been the head of the democratic caucus for the past few years, and he's been widely viewed within the party as the heir apparent to speaker Pelosi. He's 52 years old, lawmaker from Brooklyn. He was unanimously elected along with the democratic whip, Massachusetts representative Catherine Clark in California's Pete Aguilar, who will succeed Jeffries as the caucus chair, Jeffries is well known on the hill as a sharp speaker. He can throw some elbows as a partisan, and he also has good relations with various wings of the party, though at times there have been strains with the progressive wing. Sometimes we can have noisy conversations. At the end of the day, we always come together. The new leadership team replaces speaker Pelosi, majority leader steny Hoyer of Maryland, while another lawmaker in his 80s, James Clyburn is planning to move down in the leadership. Hey Mitch, Republicans will retain power in the house, come January. They're going to get power in the house. And there's still some drama over making Kevin McCarthy the next House speaker. What can you tell us about that? Right, McCarthy has still not sewn up those votes to become House speaker. He can only lose a few votes, as you know, since Republicans will have a slim majority, and he is still trying to get support from the conservative house freedom caucus. He utilized his visit to The White House to publicly challenge the president's policies on the border, federal spending and other issues, and he's trying to serve notice that Republicans will make their priorities clear as the GOP retakes the house in the coming year. The full house will vote on a new speaker on January 3rd, and it could lead to the first floor fight in close to a hundred years. We also have the house quickly approving legislation to avert a nationwide rail strike. What are the bill's prospects in the Senate? The Senate isn't quite the slam dunk that the house was, and it's still unclear when they will actually vote on this broader legislation, but given the huge economic stakes and the fact that we're only a few weeks from Christmas with concerns about supply chain issues. There's generally a feeling that the Senate will

"FM WTO P dot com and of course on the WTO P, where the time now is two 22. It is considered part of being a grown-up, even though it's not something you really want to think about having to use. For talking about life insurance, this morning CBS News business analyst justinger explains how to navigate the subject. When you really think about the reality of what we've all just lived through over the last two and a half years, I think it's not surprising to hear that almost a third of Americans say they are actually considering life insurance as a result of the pandemic. It's really just hits that message home that bad things can happen out of the blue. The idea is how can we prepare for those things and make sure that our loved ones are protected. So where do we start? Because figuring out a policy has to be complicated, right? I think we start with a very simple question. If I were to die suddenly, would anyone have a disastrous financial outcome. In other words, if someone relying on me. And I know we always think about this in terms of kids or a partner, but maybe you're taking care of an older relative. Maybe you've got to depended who's a sibling. Maybe there's a special need situation. So if you do need coverage, the next question is, how much? There's a slew of insurance calculators online that will help you out. And once you get that amount, the type is kind of easy. The vast majority, probably 95% of Americans would be best served by using term life insurance. That is the kind of coverage that is in fact for a specific period of time or a term. Maybe it's ten, 20, 30 years. And if you die during that term, your heirs or your beneficiaries get the money that is stated on the policy. And the reason why we think term is really the best in general is that most people have a specific period of time where coverage needs to be enforced. But after a period of time, maybe your kids are grown, maybe you've saved an invested and paid down your own debt, and you don't need as much coverage. So term life will mostly cover your needs.

The preliminary investigation indicates an array in crashed, investigators believe she was on foot when she was subsequently struck by oncoming traffic. Next month marks 20 years since the beltway snipers killed ten people and wounded three others. The man who was the face of the bureau of alcohol tobacco and firearms during the hunt for the suspects is looking back at what the evidence showed and how new technology might have helped solve the crime sooner. Ballistics was crucial to solving this case. Michael Bouchard was the ATF commander during the investigation. He says that the bullets recovered from the victims were all the same. We also found spent shell casings at some of the scenes that spent shell casings came from the same rifle.

"21 minutes after the hour America continue my conversation with the legendary Dodger broadcaster Vin Scully. And sky, how hard is it to get that first gig in broadcast? Well, again, fake play the hand. There was a lovely girl on the campus who was a friend of mine, not a girlfriend, but a friend named McGee, marguerite Clark, and marguerite said, I will type up letters and we'll send them out to radio stations, and I said, okay, let's start from Maine to Florida. And so we had a big book called a broadcast magazine, and it listed all of the stations that you addressed the East Asian managers name, et cetera, and she began typing up the letters, and we came to Washington, D.C., WTO, a.m. and FM, which is a 50,000 watt station. That's the major league. It doesn't get any bigger and brighter than that. So I said to McGee as we called her, McGee, we better skip that. That's too big a station. And to date the story, she said, look, it's only going to cost another three cents stamp. So we put a three cent stamp on this 50,000 watt station letter, mailed it off, and I received a lot of answers from other stations basically saying no job or listen pal. This is a big station and you're coming off a college campus station, which it was not. It was an FM station. But anyway, WTO P said please send an audition disk. So I sent a disk down containing the various bits and pieces of on air broadcast and the next thing I know I received a phone call and the phone call said we would be interested in meeting you, we don't hire anyone site unseen.

"WTO. America's birthday is here and the celebrations downtown at the national mall will be back to normal after two pandemic years. Crowds will soon be gathering for those events. Many road closures and parking restrictions in the district are already in effect. The National Park Service is putting on a full firework celebration just after 9 tonight. So if you're planning to head down to the national mall for the fireworks display, you are in course encouraged to take metro, but you'll probably want to leave home earlier than you were planning. Metro's rail capacity will be lower than a typical July 4th holiday. That means after the fireworks are over, expect longer lines to enter stations near them all. To help handle the crowds and manage the long waits, metros transit police will be positioned across the system. It's all hands on deck. Metro's interim general manager Andy off tells our news partners at NBC four, the July 4th celebration is a huge event for the agency. Pre-pandemic, you know, we'd have 400,000 people or so, whether we'll get to that point or not quite sure. But it's going to be big. And off says you will see metro transit police at the Smithsonian and other busy metro rail stations near the festivities, it may even get to the point where police will have to stop people before they enter a crowded station to make sure they're not putting too many people on the platform. We're setting folks expectations that it is going to be very busy. Sarah Jacobs, WTO, news. Don't forget about the security checkpoints at the national mall.

The Most Troubling Implications of Hunter's Foreign Business Dealings
"Sinister at play here. Which is it's very clear that as we dive into the Hunter Biden and the Joe Biden crime family run by Joe himself that American public policy, an American foreign policy. Was changed altered or edited because of the business dealings that Hunter Biden was engaged in. So it's not just that Hunter Biden did all these bad things. It's not that just Joe Biden told him to do it, but it's becoming more and more clear that the reason why these foreign countries and these foreign banks in these foreign energy companies and why the Chinese Communist Party was pumping money in is because they were getting something in return. Now we have laws against selling access for a reason. This is not just a crime that is impacted one person. It's not just like Joe and Hunter Biden went to the side of the street and stole a purse from somebody. This arguably impacts everybody. It impacts the entire free world. So when you have Joe and Hunter Biden going to China, receiving an extraordinary amount of money from China for no reason whatsoever. It begs the question, what decisions were then made as a result towards China because of that payoff? A Peter Schweitzer has a great one liner that he says the Chinese use a lot, which is bad mouth big help. That is how the Chinese describe Joe and Hunter Biden. They might talk a good game with China here and there. But they're a big help. You know, challenge their status in the World Health Organization. They never want, I mean, in the world, not just the World Health Organization, but in the WTO, the World Trade Organization, I should say. They don't want a full fledged investigation into the origins of the virus. They don't want sanctions on China. They might talk a good game here in there and they don't even do that very well, by the way.

Bipartisan Senate Bill Wants to Break up Big Tech
"Not a fake news story is a bill being pushed by senator Klobuchar of Minnesota and grassley of Iowa that would lead to the breakup of big tech. Now I'm very ambivalent about big tech.

You are a national security specialist. What do you think about this bill? Well, look, I wrote about this in The Wall Street Journal about ten days ago. And I understand people are based are very angry at big tech companies. And they've got good reason to with censorship and privacy issues, the fact that the president Trump was taken off some of the social media platforms and yet terrorists and autocrats are left on.

"wto" Discussed on Marketplace Morning Report with David Brancaccio
"London. This is the marketplace morning report from the bbc world. Service victoria craig. Good morning beijing has issued the latest salvo. And it's escalating fight with canberra. Today it filed a lawsuit with the wto challenging anti dumping measures including two year old tariffs on train wheels and wind turbines. The move comes a week. After australia challenged its biggest. Trading partners wine export tariffs which reach as high as two hundred eighteen percent. The bbc's phil mercer has more from sydney china is accusing australia of anti competitive behavior against chinese exports of railway wheels stainless steel sinks and wind towers. The australian trade minister is a man called dante and and he says that australia will be vigorously defending these duties that it has in place for several years now and lots of speculation here in australia that china's move is retaliation against australia taking china to the world trade organization over bali and wine with more pressure perhaps from the us and europe on china. Do you think that could pressure china to the negotiating table with australia. Probably not we get the sense here in australia. Perhaps china is trying to make an example of australia. Australia is trying to stand up to what it considers to be economic coercion. The prime minister scott morrison has indicated. Are there signs. That china is willing to back down or to negotiate. We don't see signs of either of those two things. Now of banescu meeting between china and australia lost year camera. Demanded an inquiry into the origins of the new corona virus that was first detected in china in one thousand nine hundred and ever since we've seen relations deteriorates and this trade war between the two countries escalate and it's been a particularly painful situation for some businesses in australia hasn't it. Many many businesses have been suffering. The wine industry is one in particular in november of last year. China announced additional import taxes on australian wine exports of more than two hundred percent. China was australia's most valuable wine export market but those duties imposed by the chinese last year almost killed off that lucrative trade in an instant. It is worth noting that at the moment that key commodity that australia relies on in terms of its exports seems to be off limits in this trade feud with china and that is of course i all on or is australia's most valuable exports on or is helping to fuel china's industrialization. We don't see any signs of iron ore being dragged into this trade dispute between beijing and camera but relations are getting pretty bad. A no one really knows where it will end the bbc's phil mercer for us in sydney. Thanks so much for your time. Thanks victoria.
Australia Takes Wine Dispute With China to WTO
"Says it will formally complain to the World Trade Organization over China's decision to impose up to 200% tariffs on Australian wine in 2019 China border nearly a billion dollars worth of wine from Australia. That figures indicated since November, when Beijing imposed his tariffs, trade has virtually collapsed, showing China's ability to severely damage of foreign industry. Dante in is Australia's trade minister. We believe that we need to take every action available to us to try and resolve disputes where we think that harm has been done to sectors or industries in our economy. And in this instance, we believe that the actions taken by the Chinese government have caused serious harm to the Australian wine industry.

Were not working great in india so he could not get their disney. We could not get anti snake venom serum in time the horse died but it's owner had an idea you said yesterday why not start making it ourselves. So the serum institute of india was born. It began making serums against tetanus and snake venom and leader added vaccines against all sorts of childhood diseases. They specialize in generic versions at low profit margins and export to one hundred and seventy different countries last spring.

Not like party or something but we had that moment of joy gonna champagne. No no serum hopes to soon be churning out a hundred million doses per month of this one vaccine on top of all the other vaccines they're still producing here. The oxford astra zeneca. Formula is particularly attractive to india and other low and middle income countries. Because it needs just regular refrigeration not subzero temperatures. This is for storage area.

Cova vaccines so that companies like serum can crank out generic versions quickly and in certain countries the majority of the population won't be vaccinated for something like five years that gives those viruses a long time to mutate.

Australia to seek WTO intervention in barley row with China
"Take the China barley tariffs to the World Trade Organization. They're saying this is a logical and appropriate next step as they see this trade war, I guess. Heat up. With China so Australia to make a request here to the WTO's after China's barley tariff. Let's get more on this with Steve Breast chief investment strategist at Standard Chartered Private Bank, because I guess it is just a reminder that the trade war whether it's between the US and China or Australia and China is still something very much of the four and still could be something that would be a big risk to 2021. Yeah, to see if you're looking at the risks that they're out there. I think you'll see that the vaccine being dispersed in an efficient manner is one thing that we need to watch but also then Relations with China just generally, you know, everybody's assuming a czar, we that you know the U. S on DCI China that they'll still have issues that they sold, but they'll work together to try and solve them border than the previous administration. But you know, it's just hot lights. It's still going to be tricky on. Therefore, we may see risk of metal bands of risk off environments around trade tensions from time to time. Yeah, when it comes to the new but an administration as you say, perhaps not a potential reset exactly on January, 20 do you expect, though, that we will see a guess a better relationship than what we had seen under the Trump administration. Well, I think it would be more predictable, which I think is, you know, T China, even if it's still quite company, confrontational in terms of having different objectives and trying to you know they're trying to achieve or modify those that's still going to be the case, but at least it will be done in a way that not through Twitter and 31 arm of the government. I'm saying one thing, and then the president saying something totally different 24 hours later, so I think it will still move in a similar direction. Just be less uncertain Day today.

How the Biden administration will affect the EU
"With the biden administration taking office in just under a month. You leaders a counting the days until they feel like they can have a new start with an american team. that's more committed to transatlantic relations this week. The us foreign policy chief. Joseph barrell reveal the agenda he hopes to pursue well joining me on the line from brussels. Is our correspondent. Teri schultz terry. It's not an exaggeration to say most e you leaders a hugely relief with the biden win and believe things are going to be different now. Where does the e u. side wants to start well and they've actually released this document now laying out where they believe. The most progress can be made in the fastest and most efficient way. And that's what you high rep josette burrell released yesterday. And they've got four areas where they want to start the europeans. They want to start with corona virus. Response making that again. A global effort with president trump having pulled out of the world health organization saying constantly america first america first when it comes to a vaccine. That's something that does not sit well with the europeans who are committed to making vaccines affordable and available to the entire world on climate. They are very much looking forward to president-elect biden making good on his campaign promise to rejoin the paris climate accord. That's something that suffers without. Us leadership and i think president-elect biden is is committed to doing that the third one is a little a little tougher trade and technology that you use third priority and that's one where you're not going to automatically see any. Us president stop protecting or trying to protect american tech giant's against for example e regulators who want to recoup taxes from from the multinationals. That's going to be somewhere where we we may not see as quick progress but on trade looking at the world trade organization where president trump is just continually attacked and and made it impossible for the wto to get reforms that the europeans also support. I expect that that will be one of the areas that there will be some quick progress and unwed burrell calls global action and he says this is working toward a safer more prosperous and more democratic world and they're hoping that president-elect biden will put more emphasis on human rights on rule of and on basic democratic values that the eu and the us due to a large extent share but is it realistic for the e. You just think that the biden administration shares these views simply going to sign onto this plan. Or i think europeans may be disappointed by the fact that foreign policy is probably not going to be the first thing on on president-elect biden's list he's got to deal with the corona virus that's just raging in the in the us and and the divisiveness that this campaign and actually the trump presidency has brought about in america and he's got to work on that before he can justify to anyone that he's going to be working on with with european leaders but he very much wants to do that. All of his statements during the campaign to to europeans. Were basically i understand. This is not the way the. Us you relationships should work and he will. He does share a lot of these views. He certainly will not be giving comfort to leaders. Like hungary's viktor orban or the polish government. That is rolling back the rights of women. He will have. He will have a few things to say about that. Which president trump left unsaid or probably didn't even believe

WTA Year End Awards for 2020
"Everyone john worth. I'm hearing sports. Illustrated tennis podcast. Jamie joins me for a grab bag topics. We are midway through the final so hard to make any definitive conclusions there but we can talk about the the back of played so far. We'll talk about twenty twenty one tennis and what the picture is looking like. It's slowly coming into focus but still considerably Blurry and uncertain. We'll talk w. t. awards. There are no more women's tennis events on the calendar. But we can start distributing some honors and just sort of a catchall of tennis topics as we want to say to the finish. But we're not exactly sprinting. Either a stranger that is Finishing under strained conditions and we talk about sort of where the sport is here in mid november twenty twenty so jamie welcome. it's it's been a while. how are you. i'm good. i agree with you. It's a weird year. And i feel like we've been talking a lot about the atp and obviously the atp finals are happening. So i am happy to start by out talking about the wpa and some of these awards all right. let's go. let's let's that. I that's a good idea let's go to That'd be the w. t. a. Does not unlike the wto does not have a finals or twenty twenty. Unfortunately that's An offshoot of having events in china where international sporting events were cancelled months ago. So the vendor playing as we speak in london and there is no there is no comparable women's event. So let's say yeah let's do that. Let's start with the women season over. Why don't we hand out some awards. We genda pivot to london. Mvp award is always a bit strange. But if we're going to give player of the year honors. I feel like the player has to have won a major. Do you agree with that. Yes definitely agree with that. But this year of course We had one less. And i think that i would also classify the majors in two creek corona and post corona. I would almost give a little bit more weight or just feel like there's more discussion for all the majors. That are not the train open you know. Of course that was when all was normal and before all this happened But i know you. You went to your pace in your mailbox but are you. Who's your pick. i think it. It sounds sounds a little. I think you've got to say that the so you can is your twenty twenty. Mvp she won a major and got to the final of another If we play this game sometime if your life depended on a player Would she be your pick and the answer is is probably not and do i think in a head to head match. There are players who are superior. If if she and i o miyasaka played ten times i would think naomi osaka with the majority of those matches. But yeah in this straight year. But i think you're right. There was no wimbledon. There there was a us open but it did not feature you know six top ten players including ash barty the number one player including simona halep included the defending champion and that was That was one sock than we had. The french open which also did not feature ash party. Who is the defending champion. It did not feature. Naomi osaka the australian open before corona had the most flush field. So you can in one that and she reached the final of the french open so she is the only player to have won a major and got into the final of another and in this stranger. It's probably appropriate. We have a strange choice but sonya sofia kenyon is my Twenty twenty mvp will by you. I hear you on that. And i think those are all good points. I in you know so that we aren't agreeing here on all of these under some Interest to this conversation. I'm going to take a different pic. i'm gonna go with naomi osaka and i think that In speaking about mvp sort of in the Like a of a lot of awards that are giving out at this time of the year including essays own award sportsperson of the year. It's not just about what's happening on the court. It's just not about results per se about other things that This player has done. So i think that For me. I think niamey osaka. Of course like you said kennan if you're just talking about reaching a final winning final In a major. She's done that but osaka has not only one. But also use her platform and she's spoken up and she's gone beyond the court and i think that you know if we're talking if you're looking at that list of choices here And you check the box with a major win in for me. You check the box with all the other outside stuff off the court that she's done so that's my pick.
