Normally a place with a lot of buzz about it, but today it's very, very quiet. And here in the square that I'm sitting in right now, I'm looking at a crowd standing around the war memorial under the trees and they are watching on a big screen at the funeral of the queen being relayed from Westminster Abbey 300 miles away, and they are standing stock still and in total silence. What do you think is the cross section of folks there, as you just kind of survey, well, this is a town with a strong royalist tradition. It goes back centuries. It used to be a fortress town to fight off the invading Scots, the Scottish borders, not all that far away. And there are still military bases around here, so there are soldiers here past and present, but you know, when you talk to people here, which I was able to do before the ceremony began about what it is that they love and more about the queen, they often struggle to find the right to find the words actually.

I'm doing this morning by NPR's London correspondent Frank Langford also Claudia Joseph and author and journalist Frank. I'm going to start with you, what can we expect from the events today? Well, I think you're going to see sort of the British royalty and the monarchy sort of edits at its best in terms of pageantry. I mean, right now we have the queen's coffin, which has been lying in state in parliament in Westminster hall for a number of days, tens of thousands of people have come to see it and it is now being born on a gun carriage by a 142 naval officers making their way over to Westminster Abbey. In a course, the heart of London. This is a place that many Americans be very familiar with, Big Ben, number 10 Downing Street, and of course the Abbey. Claudia put this moment into perspective. It seems like almost such an insufficient question to ask you to do that because 70 years on the throne, the UK has never gone through this before. Well, it's extraordinary, isn't it? I mean, we've had lengthy reigns before. We've had ceremonial funerals, state funerals, but if you combine the fact that it's a state funeral of Britain's longest reigning monarch, the ceremony involved. And I think the fact that we're seeing that the queen's children in a new light we live in a very different era, they're all very much wearing their hearts on their sleeves. They're going through the ceremonial duties, but we're seeing tears, their eyes are rimmed and red, Prince Charles looks grief stricken as does prince Harry, the Duke of Sussex. There's a lot of warmth towards them, I think, because they are so obviously grieving. And King Charles, of course, gave that national address after his mother passed and it was noted

This is Bloomberg Caroline. And now the queen's funeral today is a major diplomatic event with dozens of heads of state and government and hundreds of foreign dignitaries attending. The foreign office has been coordinating the delicate arrangements which have been described as like a hundred state visits in one go. We've been discussing this with John kampfner, who's head of the UK and the world initiative at chatham House. It's a question of who gets to drive or be driven and who gets to have to clamber onto the bus. It is who sits where in which row in Westminster Abbey and a lot of that is going to be around etiquette rather than diplomacy heads of state will come at before deputy heads of state who will come before heads of government who will come before ambassadors and it was everlast. But the really interesting question is who is going to be talking to whom? And that's partly an issue for the UK and UK foreign policy and its trust being brand new and all of that. But it's also a lot of discrete conversations among heads of state and heads of government among themselves. That's very interesting to hear that this is to do with opinions on Russia and the war because awful as that is that is a very recent event in foreign affairs, isn't it? And the queen's reign has been has been very long, but it's really a sort of current as that is it. Yes, I mean, it's broader than that. Those countries just happen to be the countries that Britain has the worst relationships with anyway. And I would say most Western countries would probably if they had a list of 5 or 6 countries they wouldn't like to invite to things. It would be them. But when you think back at the queen's reign herself and her diplomacy, her non speaking diplomacy, so to speak, over all that time, goodness, she has had enough ogres in binding and palace and in Windsor over the time Nikolai ceausescu, the Romanian leader who was executed on Christmas Day in 1989 right after the coup, one of the worst Warsaw Pact leaders, she's had Putin, she's had Jinping himself. She's had all kinds of things. She had Donald Trump and you could tell she didn't think much of him. All the way through, she's had people that, for a lot of British public opinion, we would regard as unsavory, but those were the days when hugging people close, even if you didn't like them, was the way to go. Now it is very much a more binary set of relationships who is friend and who is foe. This is, of course, a funeral. It's a solemn event, but are there is there a diplomatic opportunity without sounding mercenary about is the diplomatic opportunity here for Britain to cement some of those friendships and perhaps tackle some issues that could be to a national advantage? Short term, yes, I mean the eyes of the world will be on London and you can say they have been on London for the last ten days already. That I don't think we should overplay. I mean, for Liz truss, she was only in office for two days before the queen died, and she is incredibly new. And she's not been able to do normal politics in the course of this morning period for the queen that will start in earnest again Tuesday, Wednesday next week for her. It's really, really important. We thought that her first real multilateral outing was going to be in New York for the United Nations. Annual meeting, but no, she's got a chance to talk to a lot of people. She and they will all have to be incredibly discreet about the way they do that. But I would also caution a little bit these stock of the queen was, as we have all seen, incredibly high. That obviously has a certain benefit for the UK. But the stock of Britain and the stock of the British government over the last several years, particularly in Europe, but further revealed as well, has been really quite poor in so many places, Boris Johnson being disparaged being seen as unreliable as not following the rule of law as being a bit of a clown. All of that is going to take a lot of reversing, Liz truss has a different personality, but very much a sort of Britain first, quite hard right wing ideological attitude. It'll be fascinating to see how she applies all of that in her own way now as the incumbent in number ten. That was John kathner head of the UK and the world initiative

I'm Brian shook. You're listening to masters in business with Barry riddles on Bloomberg radio. I'm Barry holt's you're listening to masters in business on Bloomberg radio, my extra special guest today is Albert Wegener. He is the managing partner at Union Square ventures. They have invested in such companies as coinbase, DuoLingo, Etsy, and Twitter. So let's talk about the current state of the world for venture capitalists. We've seen valuations come way down for public companies. They're pretty reasonably priced these days about 16 times for the S&P 500. That's historically more or less average. Where do you see the state of the world in early stage valuations? How are they holding up? A year ago, late stage valuations had gone just bonkers, tell us a little bit about what's going on today. The correction always basically is a trickle down type of correction. It happens very rapidly in the public markets, then you still get some high price private rounds that either were in the works or they have a lot of structure in the latest stage markets. There's a headline number, but then nobody talks about all the Warren coverage that's behind the scenes. And then the early stage valuations tend to lag behind all of that. But we're seeing early stage valuations come down and as a firm we've always been disciplined on valuations. So we just let a lot of things go where we just thought it was. Are they down off the peak or are they cheap and attractive? The down of the peak, whether they're cheap or attractive, I think time will tell. But we are back in a situation where there are seed deals getting done at below $10 million, certainly below $20 million. And seed rounds that have a reasonable size. So for a while we were seeing these ten, 20, $30 million seed rounds. Sounds pricey. Yeah, and that's not happening anymore. But it was kind of interesting. We've also always tried to basically be at the next pieces and evolve our thesis before everybody else gets there. And once everybody else gets there, try and do well for our thesis. So for example, in the climate fund, we've made any number of reasonably priced investments. It's very reasonably priced. So I always assumed it was tied to the public markets, but sometimes you just don't realize when you have a good couple of years in a row in the public markets, you see that impact in what people are looking for, what sort of deals get done and valuations generally. I always find it relatively surprising how much private early stage valuations are tied to public markets because all the exit, right? But our holding periods are 5, 8, ten years. And so what's the current public? And so there's a couple of different explanations. One obviously is just investor sentiment, right? When investors are bearish because of what they're seeing in the public markets, they take a bearish attitude towards their own investing. We try as soon as we're interested. We tried to have a pretty steady pace as one way of counteracting our own sort of whatever our own emotions may be about the public markets. There is, however, another effect that sometimes is underestimated, which is that the people who give money into venture funds. So these are pension funds and endowments and so forth. They have a certain website from the public markets because when they're feeling flush on the public markets, then their private allocation as a percentage of their overall portfolio. They have a certain target in mind. When the public markets come down a lot, all of a sudden they're over allocated. So they want to pull back. So there is a mechanism by which the current public markets transmit into the private markets. There's a real financial mechanism. There's a psychological mechanism and a real financial mechanism by which some transmission some contagion basically happens from the public markets and department of money. But it doesn't make very much sense. Like if people were sort of more cognizant of both the emotional reaction and this mechanism, they'd be like, well, yeah, but innovation is happening at some pace in some area. There's some innovation that we should be funding that innovation. So I'm just making notes and investors are irrational. So profound insight right here. There you go. You never heard this one before. So to put that into a little context, 2020, 2021, very founder friendly deals. Now it seems like a little more investor friendly. Their assessment or not quite there yet. Well, when it comes to founder friendly versus investor friendly, there's a lot more to a deal than valuation is all the other terms. And while I believe we will see a correction on valuation that's pretty significant, I don't think we're going to go back to where venture capital was 20 or 30 years ago that had all these super draconian terms. Certainly, even at the early stage, even at the early stage they were all these, they were redemption provisions in early stage deals. I don't think that's going to come back. We are not fans of structure in later stage deals like just to give you a good example. When I was still on the board of Twilio, Twilio had the option of doing a totally clean no structure round at call it a ¥1 billion and a highly structured round with we're going to have a full ratchet into an IPO at a 1 billion 5 and some of the other investors at the table really wanted the 1 billion 5 number basis the bigger headline number. And I talked to Jeff and I said, just make any sense. You don't actually know what you deal with until many years later. Just take the deal where you know what the deal is today and you know what the deal is a

That would solve the problems. They saw in current dictionaries. The process of whoever was incredibly slow. It took until eighteen fifty seven to establish a committee to create a list of unregistered words. These are words that weren't in current dictionaries or were poorly defined. If this had been the extent of what the illogical society had done. I wouldn't be doing an episode about this. The man who headed up. The committee was richard chenevix-trench. Trench was an interested in just coming up with a list of unregistered words. His ambition was much greater the report he produced with something else entirely. His report was titled on some deficiencies in our english dictionaries. It detailed all of the problems with current english language dictionaries in the nineteenth century. He noted problems. With the lack of coverage of obsolete words histories of words synonyms of words in poor examples and illustrations of words. What trench propose wasn't just a dictionary like the society had considered in the past. Trench was proposing writing the dictionary the most comprehensive dictionary of the english language. It wouldn't just be a list of words but of all of the words no longer in use and the history of all the words and where they came from. This would be a massive massive undertaking in eighteen fifty-eight the illogical society formerly called for the creation of a new dictionary which they called a new english dictionary on historical principles. First order of business was hiring someone to be the editor. Trench wasn't able to take on the assignment. As he was appointed the dean of westminster abbey. The job fell to herbert coleridge. Coleridge was only twenty nine. When he was appointed in eighteen sixty he created the outline in strategy for the entire project. He began the system to categorize the hundreds of thousands of quotes which would be required.

"Do ponds and things like that that literally it comes in circles and spirals around just like if you see a river above ground there are underground rivers and these underground rivers if you build on top of them. So lo and behold westminster abbey. There's people that did very very sophisticated research of how the water and if you see how. Westminster abbey is built. It looks like across it literally. looks like across. Will they built that structure where those crosses are down underneath there now. They didn't make the water. This is naturally how the water the water makes out a sign of across it comes in and circles in these areas and circles and then it goes out right so they sense the energy and they built on top of these things on their power points came so these things are all over the place. So what can we do to to fix that. While they're still again winter. Let me tell you this too. He goes into. There's a whole bunch of peop- people have always wondered. Okay why do the tornadoes always hit the trailer park. Why do they take the trailer parks. They're built on the side of town they wipe up wipe out the trump because the electrostatic energies of metal boxes. Especially aluminum is really really bad. The earth don't like aluminum energies because it's non magnetic it actually you can't ties it. Gold and silver is affected by electro-magnetic fields.

Who Was George Fredrick Handel
"Welcome back to another episode of five minutes in Church history. On this episode, we're talking about a composer George, Frederic Handel and I resist the urge to have upon here and say that we going to get a handle on handle. But let's get a handle on hindle. He was born in sixteen, Eighty five in Hallo- Germany the importance of that year is it was the same year as the birth of Johann Sebastian Bach sixteen eighty five was a great year for the birth of composers apparently, and now Bach to handle and I promise. I'm done with punts. Well handle was originally set to be a lawyer but he loved music and he quickly showed his prowess as an organist and at composing, and so he said off to be a musician. He spent some time traveling around Italy and then he was musician for the elector of Hanover. Now, the importance of the elector of Hanover was that he was the heir to the throne of England and when Queen and died childless the elector of Hanover became King George the. First of England handle moved with him to London and the year was seventeen off and from then on hand spent the rest of his life in Britain, and he's while born in Germany and German descent is known as an English composer under George. The first t founded the Royal Academy of Music, which he directed for fifteen years early on in London Handel composed for King George the first his famous water music or as in handles beloved German Tongue vassar music. The first time it was performed for King George loved it so much. He ordered it played again and then he ordered it played again. So debuted three times in a row in seventeen seventeen. After. He finished his time handle finished his time at the Royal Academy of Music. He spent much of the Seventeenth Thirties writing operas, and then he said about to write what might be considered his magnum opus the Messiah. Handel. was by all accounts obsessed with work. We would say today a workaholic and he poured himself into his work as a composer as a musician. Sadly in seventeen fifty one he went blind and then in seventeen, fifty, nine, the age of seventy four he died in, London? He was buried in Westminster Abbey and of course, the grand organ of the Abbey and the choir played his beloved. Messiah. Handel one said I should be very sorry if I only entertained them referring to the people who listen to his music, he wanted people to not only be entertained but to beat moved by his music and that was certainly the case with the Messiah. The Messiah was first performed in Dublin on April thirteen, seventeen, forty two it was performed the next year in London and King George the second was in the audience attending and when he got to the chorus for part to the Hallelujah Chorus King George, the second was moved that he stood up, and of course, when the king stands everyone else stands in. So the whole theater stood alongside of the king and that started tradition of standing during the Hallelujah course. The Messiah is in three parts. Part one begins with prophecies of the. Coming Messiah from Isaiah and Psalms, and takes us right to the shepherds watching their flock at night on Bethlehem's hillsides. Then part two covers the passion, the suffering in-depth of Christ and ends with that Hallelujah course part three picks up with Christ's resurrection and continues with his ascension and what theologians call his present session in glory, and then it ends with the day of judgement to come as the Messiah the king comes in glory. Well, that is Handel's Messiah and when he was finished writing the musical score, he signed it s D. G. Solely Dale Gloria.

"On this episode of five minutes in Church history. We are going on quite the journey. Let's explore five cathedrals in Europe ready. Well we'll start in Florence at the Santa Maria del Flora or the Duomo di Ferenza as Tian's would call it. This cathedral was started in twelve ninety six. It was finished in fourteen thirty six and one of the final structures that was put into place for this Cathedral. Was the famous dome. It was designed and built by Brunelleschi. Who had studied geometry and physics but for much of it by his own account. He relied on his own intuition. And well it worked The Dome was built in. It still lasts. It's made of brick. It has its white ribs in its terra cotta tiles and it serves as such a great backdrop for so many spy movies. So I'm sure you've seen it or the site of that Cathedral. There and Florence goes all the way back to a church that was likely dedicated in three ninety-three by none other than ambrose of Milan and that's the cathedral at Florence. Well let's keep moving. We'll go to Paris and to Notre Dame in two thousand nineteen. It was all over the news. Of course because of that fire it will take millions to rebuild and it will take many years to it as restored. It was first built back in eleven sixty three it epitomizes that ribbed vault and flying buttress style those cathedral structures that are so crucial. It was the site of a temple to Jupiter and the early Roman days and then it was a church and then it was a cathedral in seventeen ninety three. This is the time of the French Revolution. It was rededicated no longer as a church but as the cult of reason and all of the statues to marry were replaced and they were replaced by Statues Lady Liberty Well. It stood that way for many decades and then along came a novel. Victor Hugo's the hunchback of Notre Dame in eighteen thirty one and when that novelist published drew attention to the cathedral and its restoration so Paris. Well let's travel a little north and let's go up the Rhine River and let's go to Cologne. Germany and Statistics abound about this cathedral in Cologne. Germany are you ready? It is the tallest twin spires church in the world. It is the second tallest church in Europe and it is the third tallest church in the world. Those twin spires reached five hundred sixteen feet. Construction began in twelve sixty four. Here's a statistic for you. It has one hundred eighty five thousand square feet of space. This is a huge building. It was so huge that the allied bombers use those twin spires as a landmark further bombing raids during World War Two. The cathedral survived it. Took some hits but it survived in. It stood in a pile of rubble that was the city of Cologne. If you go there today you can climb all the way up to the top for viewing platform. If you're willing to climb five hundred and thirty three stone steps you can also hear. It's eleven massive bells. The largest of those bells weighs twenty four tons. Well let's cross the English Channel and we'll go over to London to Westminster Abbey. Westminster Abbey has a number of people buried in it and the number of people memorialized in it. Over three thousand people have plaques inside Westminster Abbey and many of them are actually buried there. Isaac Newton the poet Robert Browning kings and Queens and princesses and princes and of course inside Westminster Abbey in Jerusalem chamber in the sixteen forties. We have the writings of the Westminster standards. Well let's reach north a little bit. We've gone from Florence to Paris to Cologne to London. Let's go to Edinburgh to Saint Giles. Cathedral it dates back to eleven twenty four. But it's glorious. Moment came in the sixteenth century. It was the seat of the Scottish reformation in fifteen fifty nine. John Knox was installed as minister at Saint Giles. What a great story. What a great story. All of these cathedrals have to

closing of of businesses businesses and and schools schools Gottlieb Gottlieb did did offer offer reassurance reassurance saying saying quote quote we'll we'll get get through through this this another another former former democratic democratic presidential presidential candidate candidate is is endorsing endorsing Joe Joe Biden Biden in a video on Twitter California senator Kamilla Harris threw her support behind the former vice president saying quote I believe in joke we need a leader who really does care about the people and who can therefore unify the people and I believe Joe can do that and with us right now was ABC news political analyst Steve Roberts Steve what a difference a week makes it did you anticipate Joe Biden picking up this mode the momentum this quickly no I have not I don't think anybody did I I think what we're what we're seeing though is a fascinating phenomena based on one word and that word is fear it's fear of Donald Trump and fear of Bernie Sanders Joe Biden has not been reborn as some useful charismatics move talking energetic candidates Joe Biden today is still the same Joe Biden that people have a lot of doubts about two weeks ago two months ago two years ago the difference is that Democrats have so desperate so frantic to find somebody who can beat Donald Trump that they decided that day either as a group and individually as voters and as candidates they'll camel Harris being an example of of having to rally around somebody and then choosing between Biden and Sanders the fear of Bernie Sanders is pulling the party too far to the left so there's a lot of energy around the Biden candidacy right now but in my view it's largely negative energy it's driven by fear it's driven by desperation there are not a lot of Democrats even this morning jumping up and down in Saint Joe Biden's gonna be a great candidate a great president but this negative energy is very powerful and that's what's driving this trend do you think it's now his to lose or is it too early to say that definitely has to lose end up and I think it's gonna be very difficult for Bernie Sanders to rebound here the one variable of course the one no wild card is by himself as I say he has not been report he's still the guy who can show astounding lapses of judgment he's still the guy who could make gaffes he's still the guy who can show his age very clearly he's still the guy who can appear fumbling and uncertain and in debates with Bernie Sanders and interviews it's still entirely possible for him to make damaging mistakes I think a lot of Democrats even if they rally around by they're holding their breath and hoping that Biden will get its act together and I've seen some signs a few signs of Byton improving on the stop I think he's shown a little bit
