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.”

  • 8/27   Crops Surge on Prospect China Will Step Up Buying in Trade Truce
    TECHNOLOGY TOPIC NEWS

    (Bloomberg) -- Soybean futures jumped to the highest in more than three months, while corn extended gains, on news that the U.S. and China reached a partial agreement in the trade war that could lay the groundwork for a broader deal.China would agree to some agriculture concessions as part of the deal while the U.S. would offer tariff relief, according to people familiar with the matter. The pact is tentative and subject to change as President Donald Trump was due to meet Chinese Vice Premier Liu He in Washington this afternoon, just after grains markets close on the Chicago Board of Trade.“There’s a lot of expectations we get a deal,” Jack Scoville, vice president at Chicago brokerage Price Futures Group Inc., said by telephone.China already had discussed boosting purchases of U.S. agriculture products such as soybeans, pork and wheat. The world’s top soy importer had already been buying both the oilseed and pork in the U.S. as recently as the week ending Oct. 3, U.S. government data showed. Hog, cotton and ethanol futures also gained in Chicago.“The key will be whether these are true concessions – enforceable elimination of trade barriers and tariffs on U.S. farm products, including soybeans, corn, DDGS, wheat and ethanol, to name a few – or whether it’s just China’s commitment to step up purchases,” said Bryce Knorr, a senior grain market analyst at Farm Futures.The meeting and potential risks surrounding wintry weather in the northern U.S. and in southern Canada that could curb supplies of some crops prompted some grain traders to close out bets.“It feels like a huge risk-off event ahead of the weekend,” said Joe Nussmeier, a broker at Frontier Futures in Minneapolis.Some traders remained skeptical buying soybeans from the U.S. represented a significant breakthrough in the overall trade talks, according to people familiar with the matter. China has been buying soybeans in Brazil in the past two days after some goodwill purchases from the U.S. and the strategy of switching between the two countries has helped China secure lower prices, the people said.“China needs soybeans right now because Brazil’s supplies are exhausted,” Knorr said. “But even if they wind up taking 30 million metric tons as reported, total U.S. exports likely would still be” lower than before the trade war began, he said.Goodwill purchases of soybeans have been taking place since December and a full deal still hasn’t been reached.“I am a bit pessimistic this could be the real deal as we have stumbled on the finish line a few times,” said Niko Anderson, a grain broker at SCB Group in Chicago. “While recent export sales out of the Pacific Northwest seem very encouraging, we have seen China buy before without any deal actually being reached.”To contact the reporters on this story: Michael Hirtzer in Chicago at mhirtzer@bloomberg.net;Isis Almeida in Chicago at ialmeida3@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: James Attwood at jattwood3@bloomberg.net, Millie MunshiFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.

  • 11/27   GOP Candidates Compete to Unseat Democrat John Bel Edwards in Louisiana’s Gubernatorial Race
    TECHNOLOGY TOPIC NEWS

    This weekend, Louisianans will cast their votes in an open “jungle primary” for their state’s gubernatorial race, featuring several candidates, some more viable than others. The strongest contenders are Louisiana’s current governor, Democrat John Bel Edwards, and two Republicans: Representative Ralph Abraham and businessman Eddie Rispone.The Republican Governors Association considers the race a top pick-up opportunity for the GOP. “With the state’s solid red hue combined with President Trump’s 20-point victory in 2016, Governor Edwards will certainly face a competitive race no matter who Republicans decide to nominate,” Jon Thompson, an RGA spokesman, said of the contest last November.If Edwards, who is polling well ahead of Abraham and Rispone, manages to secure 50 percent of the vote in Saturday’s contest, he’ll maintain his seat as governor, and Thompson will be proven wrong. If he doesn’t, he’ll face whichever of the two Republicans finishes second in a runoff election on November 16. Of the five most recent gubernatorial elections held in Louisiana, three were won outright in the primary. Two (in 2003 and 2015) headed to a runoff, and this one looks likely to follow. Edwards hasn’t achieved more than 50 percent support in a poll of the race since mid August, and the latest surveys show him hovering in the mid 40s, reaching a peak of 48 percent in the most recent poll, from Emerson. Most surveys suggest that, of the two Republicans, Rispone has a slight edge over Abraham, polling in the low to mid 20s while Abraham reaches only the high teens. In polls of potential runoff match-ups, however, Abraham appears to fare better against Edwards than Rispone.Edwards was elected to his first term in 2015, defeating former U.S. senator David Vitter to succeed Republican governor Bobby Jindal. He’s currently the only Democratic governor in a southern state and the only Democratic politician holding statewide office in Louisiana. Even so, he seems fairly well-liked among Louisianans, with a positive net-approval rating that has held steady throughout his time as governor. Unlike many Democratic governors in red states, he has managed to avoid become deeply unpopular with Republican voters, and he’s consistently maintained strong support among independents.His popularity makes sense given his policy priorities. Under his leadership, Louisiana has gone from having a budget deficit to a budget surplus. He has focused on popular causes such as Medicaid expansion and increasing funding for K–12 education. Significantly, and unlike the overwhelming majority of Democratic politicians, he has also shown himself to be socially conservative. A Catholic, he has governed as a supporter of pro-life policies, even going so far as to sign a law that would prohibit abortion after a fetal heartbeat can be detected, usually around six weeks’ gestation.Abraham has represented Louisiana’s fifth congressional district, which covers most of the northeastern and central portions of the state, since he was first elected in 2014. The Advocate, Lousiana’s largest daily paper, wrote during his most recent bid for reelection last year that he “has turned in a consistently conservative voting record in Congress” and deemed the fifth district “reliably Republican.” That seems to be the case: Abraham won that race by 36 points.Rispone, meanwhile, is an independently wealthy contractor who has invested more than $11 million of his personal money into his campaign, and has tried to position himself as an outsider alternative to Abraham, suggesting that the congressman has been insufficiently supportive of President Trump.As for Trump, he hasn’t said a word about which Republican voters in the state ought to support tomorrow, though he and others in his orbit have certainly encouraged them to vote. He is scheduled to visit the state this evening, for a final rally before tomorrow’s contest, after Vice President Mike Pence and Donald Trump Jr. visited and urged Republicans to back either Abraham or Rispone in separate rallies over the last week. Speaking to a crowd in Kenner, La. last Saturday, Pence attempted to frame the race as a referendum on the president, telling the crowd that voting against Edwards would show Washington that Louisiana voters support Trump in light of House Democrats’ impeachment inquiry.A key issue on which all three candidates disagree is whether the state should hold a constitutional convention to amend the state constitution in 2020. Louisiana is one of only six states not to require a popular vote to call such a convention, instead leaving that responsibility to the legislature. There were some limited efforts last spring in the legislature to call a convention, but they eventually died down, only to pick back up again this year.Of the three gubernatorial candidates, Rispone is the most supportive of the idea; in fact, he’s made it a central component of his proposed policy agenda, insisting that rewriting the constitution is the best way to give the government more money to fund coastal restoration and K–12 education, among other goals.Abraham hasn’t explicitly opposed holding a convention but has said that doing so would risk the possibility of changes that could come back to haunt Republicans. “If you open up the entire constitution, you put things on the chopping block like education that we believe are important,” he said in a late-September debate.“A constitutional convention is not, in my view, necessary,” Edwards said in a speech to Louisiana sheriffs in August. “I don’t have a burning desire to do it [and] would not support the effort if it couldn’t be a limited constitutional convention. There’s a difference of opinion among the legal scholars as to whether that’s possible.”Given that calling a convention requires two-thirds’ support in both chambers of the legislature, the effort seems unlikely to succeed at the moment. But as an issue in an off-year race where Edwards’ avoiding a runoff could be determined by just a few percentage points, it could have a big impact. And that, in turn, makes it crucial to Republicans hungry for any good news they can get as the national party heads into a presidential election year amid the turmoil of House Democrats’ effort to impeach Trump. The president may not have picked a dog in this fight, but he and his supporters will surely be watching tomorrow night’s results with interest.

PG&E restored the power in Northern California after workers inspected power lines to make sure it was safe to do so.

  • 18/27   WeWork Discusses $5 Billion Debt Package With Lenders
    TECHNOLOGY TOPIC NEWS

    (Bloomberg) -- WeWork is in talks with lenders led by JPMorgan Chase & Co. about a $5 billion debt package, seeking to ease a cash crunch that could leave the office-sharing company short of money as soon as next month, according to people familiar with the matter.One option that’s been floated is raising $3 billion or more of the debt package through the sale of high-yield bonds, some of the people said. The financing could start to more formally come together as early as next week, but it may take longer for its structure and terms to be finalized, said the people, who requested anonymity because the talks are private.SoftBank Group Corp., the largest shareholder in WeWork, is currently in advanced talks to acquire more shares at a significantly lower valuation than the $47 billion WeWork had in January, said two people familiar with those discussions. SoftBank had already agreed to contribute another $1.5 billion to the company next April, according to WeWork’s now-withdrawn prospectus for an initial public offering.The financing talks sent the company’s bonds to their biggest gain on record. WeWork needs new financing before the end of November to avoid running out of money, two people familiar with the matter said earlier.We Co. was one of the year’s most hotly anticipated IPOs, but a turbulent process turned into a cautionary tale of private market exuberance and cost the company’s top executive his job. The fast-growing, money-losing startup had been counting on a stock listing -- and a $6 billion loan contingent on a successful IPO -- to meet its cash needs.The company’s bond prices climbed from record lows amid reports of the financing talks. Its senior unsecured notes due 2025 jumped more than 8 cents on the dollar to 90.50 cents at 2:34 p.m. in New York, after dropping to as low as 81.25 cents on Thursday, according to Trace bond trading data.The terms and structure of the debt package are still fluid, the people said. Any high yield bonds offered as part of the package would likely be priced at a premium to the yield commanded by WeWork’s outstanding bonds, which were issued with a 7.875% coupon and currently offer a yield of around 10%, some of the people said.Spokeswomen for JPMorgan and WeWork declined to comment.The company’s new co-chief executive officers have been moving to slash costs and spin off businesses in the past two weeks in an effort to slow its cash bleed. Analysts had previously estimated that the company would run out of money by the middle of next year.WeWork’s bonds, which traded above par less than a month ago, plunged into distressed levels during the past month, dropping more than 20 cents on the dollar before Thursday amid mounting concerns about the company’s cash situation.

  • 20/27   Trump Records Must Be Given to the House, Appeals Court Says
    TECHNOLOGY TOPIC NEWS

    (Bloomberg) -- President Donald Trump, under siege from House Democrats weighing impeachment, suffered a stinging blow as a federal appeals court upheld a subpoena ordering his accountants to provide Congress with his financial records.The ruling, by a divided three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals in Washington, means Trump will lose control of his long-secret financial records at Mazars USA LLP unless the full court reconsiders the decision or the U.S. Supreme Court blocks it.In their 2-1 decision, the judges rejected arguments made by lawyers for the president that the House Oversight and Reform Committee had no legitimate legislative reason to seek the information.Read More: Trump Isn’t Immune From Demand for Tax Records, Judge Rules“Disputes between Congress and the president are a recurring plot in our national story,” U.S. Circuit Judge David Tatel wrote in the majority’s 66-page opinion. “And that is precisely what the Framers intended.” He quoted the late Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis, who said that the purpose of the separation of powers was “to save the people from autocracy.”Opinion: Trump Tax Return Ruling Could Open a Door to IndictmentThe ruling comes just days after a federal judge in New York rejected Trump’s challenge to a separate, state subpoena requiring Mazars to turn over Trump’s tax filings and other financial records to New York prosecutors, though the president won a last-minute delay pending an emergency appeal.Read the judges’ opinions hereFriday’s majority opinion called the House subpoena “a valid exercise of the legislative oversight authority because it seeks information important to determining the fitness of legislation to address potential problems within the Executive Branch and the electoral system.” The court said the document demand “does not seek to determine the President’s fitness for office.”Trump, the Trump Organization and the president’s three oldest children have steadfastly refused to surrender their records to Congress. Armed with the papers, Democratic lawmakers say, they could better explore any conflicts of interest in the executive branch and whether the president has violated the Constitution’s emoluments clauses.“There’s a lot of speculation, but it seems that the accounting firm has tax returns and other documents that will show President Trump and his family and associates involved in all sorts of deals,” Washington lawyer David Dorsen, who served as assistant chief counsel to the U.S. Senate’s Watergate Committee in the 1970s, said in an interview. Lawmakers will want to know whether documents show “payoffs to people in Russia, Ukraine and elsewhere,” he said.“That would be an enormous, enormous factor in what’s going on now,” Dorsen said.Read More: Giuliani Ukraine Allies Arrested With One-Way Flight TicketsU.S. Circuit Court Judge Neomi Rao, who was named to the bench by Trump, dissented from the opinion by Tatel and Patricia Millett, both appointees of Democratic presidents. She said Congress can investigate allegations of illegal conduct against the president only as part of an impeachment process and not through its legislative power.“Allowing the Committee to issue this subpoena for legislative purposes would turn Congress into a roving inquisition over a co-equal branch of government,” she wrote.Trump’s lawyers could ask the full appeals court to consider the matter, or go straight to the Supreme Court for an emergency review of the ruling, which doesn’t take effect for at least seven days.“We are evaluating the opinion and reviewing all options, including appeals,” said Jay Sekulow, a lawyer for Trump.Read More: How Trump’s (Private) Tax Returns Could Become PublicCongress’s demand for the business records came before it began its impeachment inquiry. That later probe was triggered by a whistle-blower’s claim that Trump had asked Ukraine’s president to investigate Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden and, in a quid pro quo, held back military aid Congress had appropriated to resist Russian influence in the region.But the disclosures made possible by Friday’s ruling pose further risks for the president if they raise new questions about him, his finances or his companies.The court said the evidence sought by the subpoena was sufficiently tied to the subject of the House committee’s investigation, and rejected Trump’s argument that the real purpose of the subpoena was to determine whether he has violated the law -- a law enforcement function that belongs to the executive branch, not to Congress.The majority also noted that Congress wasn’t seeking presidential records and questioned whether Trump, who sued in his individual capacity to block the subpoena, “carries the mantle of the Office of the President” in the case.“Indeed, for six of the eight years covered by the subpoena, President Trump was merely Mr. Trump or Candidate Trump,” the two judges wrote.They rejected arguments that the House violated its own rules by allowing the committee to issue the subpoena without the authority of the full body.Read More: Judge Rejects Trump Effort to Block Deutsche Bank SubpoenaIn her dissent, Rao wrote that “the most important question is not whether Congress has put forth some legitimate legislative purpose, but rather whether Congress is investigating suspicions of criminality or allegations that the President violated a law.” She said the House “may not use the legislative power to circumvent the protections and accountability that accompany the impeachment power.”The majority warned that the logic of Rao’s dissent “would reorder the very structure of the Constitution” and “impose upon the courts the job of ordering the cessation of the legislative function and putting Congress to the Hobson’s Choice of impeachment or nothing.”Representative Elijah Cummings, chairman of the House Oversight Committee, said in a statement the ruling was “a fundamental and resounding victory for Congressional oversight, our Constitutional system of checks and balances, and the rule of law.”Breaking with four decades of presidential tradition, Trump has declined to make his detailed financial records public. Acting in his personal capacity rather than as president, he sued in April to stop Mazars from handing over his records after they had been subpoenaed by the House committee. He lost in federal district court in May and appealed.Democrats told the appellate panel on July 12 that they need the Trump records as they consider mandating heightened disclosure requirements for those who hold high office. Trump argued that Congress’s request had no legitimate legislative purpose and should be rejected. The accounting firm took no position.Read More: Deutsche Bank Doesn’t Have Trump’s Tax Returns, Court SaysThe Mazars case is one of several testing Congress’s power to obtain a sitting president’s financial records in the name of oversight, with significant implications for the relationship between the executive and legislative branches.A federal appeals court in New York is weighing a similar request for records from Trump’s bankers at Capital One Financial Corp. and Deutsche Bank AG. The president is also embroiled in lawsuits with the House Ways and Means Committee, which is trying to get six years of Trump tax records from the U.S. Internal Revenue Service and has the standing right to request similar information from the state of New York.Meanwhile, the Mazars records have been targeted by Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr.; the federal judge in Manhattan ordered Mazars to comply with the subpoena, but Trump has appealed.A ruling in the president’s favor in the House Oversight case would have been “a very significant change in the balance of power,” said David Sklansky, a law professor at Stanford University, “because it would represent a significant narrowing of congressional subpoena power.”The case is Trump v.

    The former US ambassador to Ukraine reportedly told impeachment investigators Friday that President Donald Trump had sought her removal for months, and that she was eventually pushed out on 'false claims' by questionable actors.  In the first congressional appearance by a Trump administration official since it declared war on House Democrats' impeachment probe this week, Marie Yovanovitch issued a scathing critique of the Trump administration's conduct of foreign policy, reported The New York Times which obtained her opening statement.  Yovanovitch slammed 'fictitious' reports circulated by Trump allies that she is disloyal to him, and said she never did anything to sabotage his campaign or presidency, the Times quoted her as saying.
