  • 5/27   Avowed Apple Fan Jeb Bush Realizes His Apple Watch Can Take Phone Calls

    Jeb Bush's love of Apple products has been widely documented, and the Republican presidential candidate continues to wear his Apple Watch on the campaign trail. Yesterday, in a meeting with The Des Moines Register editorial board documented by USA Today, Bush stumbled upon a feature he didn’t realize his smartwatch was capable of: taking phone calls. Somehow Bush managed to take a call without picking up his iPhone, and the sound of a person’s voice saying hello breaks through the meeting noise, to which Bush responds, “My watch can’t be talking.”

    TECHNOLOGY TOPIC NEWS

    President Donald Trump showcased growing efforts to capitalize on western Pennsylvania's natural gas deposits by turning gas into plastics, as he sought Tuesday to reinvigorate supporters in the manufacturing towns that helped him win the White House in 2016.  Trump arrived in Monaca, about 40 minutes north of Pittsburgh, on Tuesday to tour Shell's soon-to-be completed Pennsylvania Petrochemicals Complex.

  • 9/27   Today’s Campaign Rhetoric Is Not Exactly Cicero
    TECHNOLOGY TOPIC NEWS

    Election campaigns, especially those that begin as prematurely as this one, are rarely the optimal occasions for intelligently original use of language. Still, the present pre-electoral shouting match in the United States is setting records in several categories. The Trump-haters have plumbed the depths of opprobrious adjectives and have now routinized the misapplication of the word “Nazi” and other terminology of the Third Reich to this president and administration. House speaker Nancy Pelosi was in my observation the first to compare the crowded but adequate detention centers on the southern border, where the detainees are fed as if they had free passes at McDonald’s, as “concentration camps.” She avoided the evidently tendentious expression “death camps,” but there is no reason to imagine that most Americans would know the difference.However, with the eruption of outlandish billingsgate that followed the El Paso and Dayton shootings, Beto O’Rourke, as the apparently least intelligent of the Democratic presidential candidates, was the first out of the starting blocks to call the president a Nazi. Let us pause to recall that there has only been one Nazi regime (National Socialist German Workers Party), in Germany from 1933 to 1945, and that it conspired with Stalin’s Soviet Union to launch World War II, overran all of mainland Europe that resisted it from the Pyrenees to the gates of Moscow and Leningrad (St. Petersburg), and from the North Cape of Norway to Sicily and the Greek islands (and Egypt almost to Alexandria). It was responsible for approximately 20 million deaths of combatant parties, perhaps 5 million civilian war casualties, and 12 million people squashed into cattle cars and delivered to death camps for gassing and incineration, including 6 million Jews and 3 million Russian prisoners of war.In the whole history of the world, in absolute numbers of premeditatedly murdered people whose conduct was inoffensive, Hitler is rivaled only by Stalin’s Soviet Union and Mao Tse-tung’s Chinese Communists. Stalin has gotten a lighter treatment because his nation took 95 percent of the casualties in subduing Hitler (while, thanks to the statesmanship of Roosevelt and Churchill, the West regained France, Germany, Italy, and Japan). And Mao has got off lightly because the endless massacres of China were not well covered by the western media and were inflicted on the immense population of China, and because Mao became somewhat popular after Richard Nixon and Henry Kissinger triangulated the great-power relationship starting in 1972 and China became partially helpful in ending the Cold War satisfactorily.Perhaps someone will ask former congressman O’Rourke, assorted talking airheads on CNN, and MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski (whose father was educated in Canada and the United States because of the Nazi invasion of Poland) by what color of right they utter or approvingly incite representations of President Trump as a Nazi. The Nazis are best known in American memory and popular history for their attempted genocide on the European Jews, which was about 75 per cent successful. President Trump’s family is half Jewish, and he is acclaimed as the greatest friend Israel has ever had in the White House. It is as bizarre as it is outrageous that he should be defamed in this way, but it is an aspect of the pernicious ignorance of history being spread like a viral pestilence by ill-informed presidential candidates. It is of a piece with my particular bugbear — Senator Cory Booker’s solemn advice in an uncomprehending Iowa school classroom that climate change must be fought as Normandy had to be invaded in 1944 (it is doubtful that he knew the year or where Normandy is, any more than he knows about Spartacus and his slave revolt in the Third Servile War in 71 b.c., another of the senator’s gambits). Winston Churchill lost the 1945 British election partly because he called the Labour party’s socialism a type of “Gestapo.” There are 15 months before voting day; long before that, the Democrats will have reduced the Nazification of Donald Trump to a mere sobriquet, like calling an opponent a scoundrel.Improvised pre-electoral wordsmithing has produced an all-time award-winning marathon champion in miscues, malapropisms, and fabrications in Joe Biden. The gaffes are too numerous to mention, but the latest ones, that “poor kids are as smart as white kids” and that he received as vice president the victim families of the Parkland school shooting in Florida (which occurred more than a year after he retired as vice president), raise a serious question about whether, as the president remarked, he’s “lost his fastball.”Everyone makes verbal slips sometimes; both Presidents Bush were famous for them, and Dwight Eisenhower sometimes deliberately used awkward syntax to confuse listeners. But the complete invention of an incident that your entire audience would know immediately to be false, from just three years ago, does raise questions about the former vice president’s capacities. The significance of this is important, as the majority of Democrats, who don’t buy into the Green Terror, open borders, doubled top income-tax increases, entirely socialized medicine, trillions of dollars of reparations for Native and African Americans, and even legalized infanticide, have placed their bets on Biden and are unlikely to change now to Michael Bennet, Amy Klobuchar, John Delaney, and Andrew Wang, the other somewhat moderate candidates. Everyone else is either completely unfeasible, such as New York’s incompetent mayor, Bill de Blasio, or an outright socialist. Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders are the leaders of this supposedly “progressive” group, and Warren seems to be pulling ahead with her campaign theme that if you don’t show your far-left colors now, you are a coward reciting “Republican talking points.” It is a very pedestrian reenactment of such previous campaigns as Alfred E. Smith and William G. McAdoo (Democrats 1924), Dwight D. Eisenhower and Robert A, Taft (Republican 1952), Nelson Rockefeller and Barry Goldwater (Republican 1964), and George McGovern and Edmund Muskie (Democrat 1972). Warren appears to be opening up a growing lead on Sanders, and if Biden can’t appear more alert, he could bobble the nomination to Warren, everyone’s nightmare of a humorless kindergarten teacher, compounded by her false claim to being an American Indian and her bright red socialism.On the other side, the president, who has frequently taken liberties with the truth and with language that has worried even his supporters, including me, went too far this past weekend by tweeting out scurrilous speculation about President Clinton’s relations with the late accused sex-slavery offender Jeffrey Epstein. There is no apparent substance to the allegation, and it is not adequate for the resourceful Kellyanne Conway to explain it as the product of the president’s desire for a full investigation. There are some things a president does not do publicly, and when he lent the prestige of his great office to the smearing of a previous president, he dishonored the office. I have generally defended his flamboyant and, to say the least, imprecise scattergun of asides, innuendos, and exaggerations, partly because he has been provoked by unprecedented defamatory attacks and dirty tricks, and partly because he is so adept at the important part of politics that is sheer entertainment. This was a mistake, It will blow over by next week; everything does, but not if he makes a habit of it.Finally, this campaign is reducing distinguished highbrow columnists to hitherto unexplored depths. The most distressing example to date has been George Will’s unutterably false and disgraceful suggestion that the president might have inspired the El Paso shootings of August 3. When Trump rhetorically asked a Florida Panhandle audience how to stop the waves of illegal immigrants, someone shouted “Shoot them all.” Instead of demurring, as he should have done, he said, “Only in the Florida Panhandle could you get away with that.” It was flippant and popular with the large crowd, and it certainly didn’t endorse killing illegal migrants. The El Paso shooter’s manifesto was available for George Will to read, and it explicitly states that his views were not influenced by Trump. George Will is a respected friend of nearly 40 years. We don’t agree about Trump, but I understand why he thinks the president is a “vulgarian” and “an embarrassment.” Sometimes he is, but most of the time he is a sensible proponent of good policy and effective government, unlike what the country has had in most of the post-Reagan years. For George Will to accuse Donald Trump of motivating mass murder to the point, as he wrote, that voting for him is a self-indictment, reduces him from the heights of commentary he has long occupied to a nether region where he does not belong. “Sad.”

  • 10/27   CBS to Merge With Viacom in Long-Awaited $11.7 Billion Deal
    TECHNOLOGY TOPIC NEWS

    (Bloomberg) -- CBS Corp. agreed to merge with Viacom Inc. in an $11.7 billion transaction, capping years of on-again, off-again talks between the U.S. media giants.The all-stock deal, announced Tuesday, unites the most-watched U.S. broadcast network with the parent of Paramount Pictures and cable channels such as MTV and Nickelodeon. It followed marathon negotiation sessions this week as the two sides hashed out a price for the long-awaited merger.CBS shareholders will get 61% of the combined company, called ViacomCBSInc. with the remainder going to Viacom investors. Each Viacom share will convert into 0.59625 of a CBS share.Shari Redstone, whose family investment vehicle National Amusements Inc. controls both companies, will become chairwoman of the combined entity. Viacom Chief Executive Officer Bob Bakish will lead the business as CEO.“We unite our complementary assets and capabilities and become one of only a few companies with the breadth and depth of content and reach to shape the future of our industry,” Bakish said in a statement.Joe Ianniello, currently acting head of CBS, will oversee the CBS side of the business. Ianniello signed a new contract that runs into 2021, according to a Viacom representative.With the media industry consolidating ever further into a handful of giant companies, the transaction could give the combined entity much greater clout in negotiating deals with pay-TV distributors. It also could help them spread out the cost of content purchases like sports rights over a wider swath of channels.Squeezing CostsManagement expects to generate $500 million a year in corporate cost savings within a year or two of the deal closing. The combined entity, valued at about $30 billion, will have more than $28 billion in sales.CBS will receive six seats on the 13-member board, while Viacom gets four. Another two will go to National Amusements, the Redstone family’s company, which has said it will vote its controlling stake in favor of the deal.The last time the companies were in merger discussions, more than a year ago, Viacom directors had agreed to take 0.6135 of a CBS share for every nonvoting share of their business, people with knowledge said at the time. The companies, using the code names “Comet” and “Venus,” had expected to save at least $1 billion by combining.CBS shares have dropped since then. They’ve lost about 18% since the beginning of 2018, as the broadcaster faced mounting challenges, including the ongoing competition for viewers with the likes of Netflix Inc. and the ouster of longtime CEO Les Moonves.This time around, the negotiations dragged on several days as the two sides worked out the details. The companies held round-the-clock negotiating sessions this week, according to people familiar with the talks.Previous TalksCBS and Viacom, both based in New York, were one entity until 2006, when the Redstone family decided investors would give them greater value as separate companies. That strategy didn’t work as well as expected, and there’s been on-and-off-again efforts to recombine them in recent years.CBS has been weighing its next moves since firing Moonves last September, after a dozen women accused him of sexual misconduct, setting off a shake-up that included a board overhaul. Ianniello, formerly chief operating officer, has been running the company as interim CEO ever since.CBS and Viacom have ties that go back to the 1970s. The latter was spun out of CBS in 1971, after the Federal Communications Commission ruled that TV networks couldn’t sell programs into syndication after the shows had completed their original run.Viacom became the vehicle that marketed reruns of “I Love Lucy” and “Gunsmoke,” and attracted the interest of Sumner Redstone as an investment. He acquired control of the company in 1987 and purchased CBS in 1999.(Updates with Bakish’s comment in fifth paragraph)\--With assistance from Jeff Green, Gerry Smith and Christopher Palmeri.To contact the reporters on this story: Nabila Ahmed in New York at nahmed54@bloomberg.net;Ed Hammond in New York at ehammond12@bloomberg.net;Lucas Shaw in Los Angeles at lshaw31@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Liana Baker at lbaker75@bloomberg.net, ;Crayton Harrison at tharrison5@bloomberg.net, Nick TurnerFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.

Another two will go to National Amusements, the Redstone family’s company, which has said it will vote its controlling stake in favor of the deal.The last time the companies were in merger discussions, more than a year ago, Viacom directors had agreed to take 0.6135 of a CBS share for every nonvoting share of their business, people with knowledge said at the time. The companies, using the code names “Comet” and “Venus,” had expected to save at least $1 billion by combining.CBS shares have dropped since then. They’ve lost about 18% since the beginning of 2018, as the broadcaster faced mounting challenges, including the ongoing competition for viewers with the likes of Netflix Inc. and the ouster of longtime CEO Les Moonves.This time around, the negotiations dragged on several days as the two sides worked out the details. The companies held round-the-clock negotiating sessions this week, according to people familiar with the talks.Previous TalksCBS and Viacom, both based in New York, were one entity until 2006, when the Redstone family decided investors would give them greater value as separate companies. That strategy didn’t work as well as expected, and there’s been on-and-off-again efforts to recombine them in recent years.CBS has been weighing its next moves since firing Moonves last September, after a dozen women accused him of sexual misconduct, setting off a shake-up that included a board overhaul. Ianniello, formerly chief operating officer, has been running the company as interim CEO ever since.CBS and Viacom have ties that go back to the 1970s. The latter was spun out of CBS in 1971, after the Federal Communications Commission ruled that TV networks couldn’t sell programs into syndication after the shows had completed their original run.Viacom became the vehicle that marketed reruns of “I Love Lucy” and “Gunsmoke,” and attracted the interest of Sumner Redstone as an investment. He acquired control of the company in 1987 and purchased CBS in 1999.(Updates with Bakish’s comment in fifth paragraph)\--With assistance from Jeff Green, Gerry Smith and Christopher Palmeri.To contact the reporters on this story: Nabila Ahmed in New York at nahmed54@bloomberg.net;Ed Hammond in New York at ehammond12@bloomberg.net;Lucas Shaw in Los Angeles at lshaw31@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Liana Baker at lbaker75@bloomberg.net, ;Crayton Harrison at tharrison5@bloomberg.net, Nick TurnerFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.

  • 11/27   Iran's Khamenei backs Yemen's Houthi movement, calls for dialogue
    TECHNOLOGY TOPIC NEWS

    Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei pledged on Tuesday Tehran's continued support for Yemen's Houthi movement and called for dialogue among Yemenis to safeguard the war-shattered nation's territorial integrity.  A Saudi-led coalition has been battling to restore Yemen's ousted government in a devastating four-year war with the Iranian-aligned Houthis that has killed tens of thousands and pushed the impoverished country to the brink of famine.  The Houthis, who control the capital Sanaa and most of Yemen's other populous areas, have stepped up attacks in recent months against targets in Saudi Arabia, Iran's arch regional foe.

  • 12/27   Facing pressure, Trump delays tariffs on some Chinese goods
    TECHNOLOGY TOPIC NEWS

    Responding to pressure from businesses and growing fears that a trade war is threatening the U.S. economy, the Trump administration is delaying some import taxes it planned to impose on Chinese goods and is dropping others altogether.  The announcement Tuesday from the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative was greeted with relief on Wall Street and by retailers who have grown fearful that the new tariffs would wreck holiday sales.  The administration says it still plans to proceed with 10% tariffs on about $300 billion in Chinese imports — extending its import taxes to just about everything China ships to the United States in a dispute over Beijing's strong-arm trade policies.

    TECHNOLOGY TOPIC NEWS

    Fidelity Investments' courtroom battle with the IRS over disallowed tax credits drew to a close on Tuesday when lawyers clashed over whether the mutual fund giant was a bonafide partner in the production of chemically treated coal.  U.S. Tax Court Judge David Gustafson said he may deliver his decision in the case as early as Wednesday.  The outcome of the trial is being closely watched by Wall Street firms and other U.S. corporations because the production of chemically treated, or refined coal, generates more than $1 billion a year in tax credits.

  • 18/27   Texas Braces for `Power Emergency' as Heat Pushes Grid to Edge
    TECHNOLOGY TOPIC NEWS

    (Bloomberg) -- The Texas grid operator warned of a potential “power emergency” as extreme heat sends electricity demand surging to record levels for a second straight day.With temperatures in Dallas approaching 100 degrees Fahrenheit (38 Celsius), the Electric Reliability Council of Texas issued a statement saying it was increasingly likely the electricity system could experience shortages. Environmental officials may ease emission restrictions, allowing power plants to operate at maximum capacity, the grid operator said.On Monday, wholesale electricity prices jumped 36,000% to average as much as $6,537.45 a megawatt-hour across the Texas power grid. It was a record that turned the Lone Star State into the most expensive place to buy power in all of America’s major markets. Some power contracts traded on the Intercontinental Exchange also spiked, with one hub in Texas jumping to $675 a megawatt-hour, said David Hoy, a trader at Dynasty Power.“This is blowing up,” Hoy said by telephone. “That should be the highest price of the year so far.”And the worst of the heat has yet to come. After peaking at 101 degrees Fahrenheit (38 Celsius) in Dallas on Monday, temperatures were forecast to climb even higher Tuesday, reaching 103 degrees before cooling off. The mix of heat and humidity will make temperatures feel closer to 112. The National Weather Service has issued a heat advisory until 8 p.m. local time.What BloombergNEF says"Power demand is growing faster in Texas than anywhere else in the U.S." \--Brian Bartholomew, analyst covering U..S. power marketsClick here to view the researchThe unprecedented market rally highlights how volatile the Texas power market has become as coal-fired power plants, which have seen their profits squeezed by cheap natural gas and renewable energy resources, continue to close. Texas’s grid operator has been warning for months that plant retirements and increasing electricity demand has left it with slim supply margins.Electricity demand hit an all-time high of 74,531 megawatts as people blasted their air conditioners on Monday afternoon, according to Ercot. Demand Tuesday will likely exceed that, with a peak of more than 75,000 megawatts.Monday’s price spike also underscores how dependent the region’s power grid has become on wind farms, which now make up about a quarter of the generation capacity in Texas. Lackluster breezes over the past several days have contributed to higher prices, said Flannan Hehir, a power market analyst at Genscape.Wind power generation in the region slid by almost 50% Monday, grid data compiled by Bloomberg show. There will be even less wind power available Tuesday. Ercot forecast output will drop to less than 3,500 megawatts, less than half of the output at 7 a.m. local time.\--With assistance from Brian K.

  • 20/27   Kremlin Spokesman: Russia Is Winning Arms Race with U.S.
    TECHNOLOGY TOPIC NEWS

    The Kremlin said Tuesday that Russia is beating the U.S. in the race to develop new nuclear weapons just days after a rocket explosion in the North of the country that released radiation into the air and resulted in the evacuation of a village.“Our president has repeatedly said that Russian engineering in this sector significantly outstrips the level that other countries have managed to reach for the moment, and it is fairly unique,” Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said.Last Thursday, an accidental explosion from a rocket test offshore of the Nenoksa Missile Test Site killed at least five people and injured three others, according to state nuclear agency Rosatom."The United States is learning much from the failed missile explosion in Russia," President Trump wrote Monday on Twitter. "We have similar, though more advanced, technology."Trump implied that the explosion involved a missile the NATO alliance has designated the SSC-X-9 Skyfall, a long-distance cruise missile propelled by a small nuclear reactor, and said the disaster has caused concern about the air surrounding the facility.Tensions have been high between the two powers since the U.S. officially withdrew from the Cold War-era Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty earlier this month, citing breaches of the agreement by Russia.Earlier in the summer, NATO demanded Moscow destroy a new nuclear-capable cruise-missile system that the U.S. claims to be in violation of the treaty, which bans both countries from possessing land-based nuclear and non-nuclear missiles with a range between 310 and 3,410 miles.Russian president Vladimir Putin warned during his State of the Nation speech in February that while Russia does not seek aggression, the country's nuclear weapons would be pointed toward the U.S. if the White House deployed missiles in Europe.

  • 21/27   Vanguard Puts Gun Stocks In ESG Index
    TECHNOLOGY TOPIC NEWS

    We all make mistakes, even investment fund giants, as Vanguard has admitted it placed gun stocks in a gun-free index. Oops Daisy As reported by Bloomberg, Vanguard bought stock in gun manufacturer Sturm Ruger & Co and mistakenly placed it in their ESG index for more than a month, which typically does not include stocks from companies that sell guns or ammunition. Index Exposure Vanguard developed the Vanguard US ESG Stock ETF to help facilitate investing in companies that meet the criteria for ESG investing, which is a way for investors to buy shares in companies or funds that meet certain ethical benchmarks. Their fund is tied to the FTSE Russell’s US All Cap Choice index, which, in theory, does not include gun manufacturers or non-renewable energy companies. The Russell index was rebalanced in June, and accidently included 11 stocks that don’t qualify as ESG. In addition to 219 shares of Sturm Ruger worth about $9,000, the index also included shares in non-ESG companies such as private prison operator Geo Group Inc. and defense contractor Halliburton Co. Vanguard spokesman Freddy Martino apologized to shareholders for the error. Passive Aggressive Index funds, more or less created by Vanguard founder Jack Bogle, are so popular that they may one day control the stock market. ESG index funds will likely continue to explode in popularity as well, as Wall Street scrambles to appease millennial investors. But, as Vanguard’s mishap shows, passive investing continues to have holes when it comes to meeting the complexities of ESG that might take a human being at the wheel to maneuver. More good news for money managers. -Michael Tedder Photo: Joshua Roberts / RUETERS

    TECHNOLOGY TOPIC NEWS

    (Bloomberg) -- The fragility of the U.S. bond market was fully exposed Tuesday as U.S. President Donald Trump’s tariff delay pushed rates higher and a ramp-up of tensions in Hong Kong helped pull them back.The widely followed spread on the 2-year and 10-year Treasury yields went back to teetering on the edge of inversion, and a second indicator within swaps continued to flash a dire warning.Implied volatility in one-month options on 10-year interest-rate swaps has shot up relative to its one-year options, signaling that far more turbulence is expected in the short-term than in a year from now. That’s making the term structure of volatility more inverted than anytime since the Treasury bond-market flash crash of October 2014.“The possibility of something triggering an event that moves us toward a crisis is way higher now than it’s been in a very long time,” said Glen Capelo, head of rates for Academy Securities in New York. “The rates market is telling you it’s going to happen, it just doesn’t know what it is yet: whether it’s Hong Kong, Brexit, European banks getting hammered, or the global economy. The system is in a more fragile state than I’ve seen in a long time and it will likely be an obscure, second-derivative event that creates the next crisis.”Capelo said the unwinding of large positions or accounts being forced to take risk down could spark the next major volatility event.“My guess is that the trigger will be something that’s not on the radar,” he said. “The next problem will be centered around liquidity.”To contact the reporter on this story: Vivien Lou Chen in San Francisco at vchen1@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Benjamin Purvis at bpurvis@bloomberg.net, Randall JensenFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.
