    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.”

  • 9/27   Fake cures, risky rumours: virus misinformation hits home
    TECHNOLOGY TOPIC NEWS

    From being duped into taking poisonous 'cures', to watching businesses crumble and avoiding life-saving medication, people are suffering devastating real-world impacts of a deluge of online virus misinformation.  As the new coronavirus that has killed more than 20,000 people causes markets to crash and sets scientists scrambling for a solution, rumours and false claims are fuelling confusion and deepening the economic misery.  Dangerous fake cures debunked by AFP include consuming volcanic ash and fighting infection with UV lamps or chlorine disinfectants, which health authorities say can harm the body if used incorrectly.

  • 11/27   Emerging market turmoil may bring FX controls back on radar
    TECHNOLOGY TOPIC NEWS

    The coronavirus pandemic and oil price collapse have made emerging markets a lightning rod for volatile capital flows, raising the question whether currency controls might creep back on the radar of some of the worst-hit countries.  Ever since the 1998 crisis, most big developing countries have accepted that the value of currencies is best determined by markets, a thesis that served them well over the years when exchange rate depreciation allowed their economies to adjust to changed circumstances.  'There is some early evidence of an unprecedented collapse in global capital mobility which, if sustained, will make it tempting for countries to conserve their FX resources by imposing restrictions on capital outflows,' said David Lubin, head of emerging markets economics at Citi.

  • 13/27   Coronavirus batters German consumer morale - GfK
    TECHNOLOGY TOPIC NEWS

    German consumer morale deteriorated sharply heading into April to hit its lowest level since 2009, a survey showed on Thursday, suggesting that the coronavirus pandemic is putting the brakes on household spending in Europe's largest economy.  The Nuremberg-based GfK institute said its survey of around 2,000 Germans showed consumer sentiment falling to 2.7 points from a revised reading of 8.3 points a month earlier.  'In light of the current development, we are withdrawing our consumer forecast of 1 percent growth for 2020,' GfK researcher Rolf Buerkl said.

That exceeded the count of 41 for the previous day. The city has become the new center of coronavirus cases in the country, overtaking Hokkaido as the area with the most infections.

President Donald Trump has urged Congress to act “without delay” and said he would sign the legislation immediately.U.S. Coronavirus Death Toll Passes 1,000 (11:41 a.m. HK)Over 1,000 people in the U.S. have died from the coronavirus, according to data tracked by Johns Hopkins University.That puts the U.S.’s death toll just behind France, which has 1,331 deaths. Italy has suffered the highest death toll in the widening global pandemic, with more than 7,500 deaths as of Thursday.The grim milestone comes as cases of infection in the U.S. rapidly increase and the World Health Organization warned that the country could become the next epicenter of the worldwide outbreak.Japan to Set up Panel Looking at Emergency Declaration (11:37 a.m. HK)Japan will set up a panel as soon as Thursday to consider declaring an emergency over the coronavirus pandemic, Economy Minister Yasutoshi Nishimura said.

The government said it now sees a sharp contraction in the economy of 1% to 4% for the full year.Even so, Deputy Prime Minister Heng Swee Keat advised against having “excessive expectations” about the size of the upcoming budget aimed at addressing the outbreak.Singapore was among the first outside of China to be hit with coronavirus cases earlier this quarter, and it is often seen as a bellwether for global trade given the openness of its economy. New Zealand’s economy could also contract by as much as 10%, initial estimates of economists show.South Korea Joins Ranks of Central Banks Deploying QE (9:37 a.m. HK)The Bank of Korea will conduct weekly money-market operations aimed at providing an “unlimited” amount of liquidity for three months. The initiative will start in April, and is designed to stabilize financial markets.

The U.S., Australia, New Zealand and several others have all taken unprecedented actions this month.EU Vows to Be ‘Vigilant’ on Possible Hostile Takeovers (7:25 a.m. HK)European Union regulators warned about hostile foreign takeovers of EU-based companies as a result of the economic slump triggered by the pandemic, putting the spotlight on medical businesses.

He noted that the number of cases in the southern hemisphere is rising as the winter season approaches there.“I know we’ll be successful in putting this down now. But we really need to be prepared for another cycle,” Fauci said. He said it’s vital that a vaccine be developed for the next cycle, along with a “menu” of treatment drugs that have been shown to be successful and safe.At the same briefing, White House coronavirus task force member Deborah Birx highlighted that the number of new cases in New York City has been relatively constant the past three days, and said that “we’re close to working through the testing backlog.”U.S. Governors Say Federal Stimulus Package Provides States Insufficient Funding (6:47 a.m. HK)U.S. governors whose states have been hardest hit by the crisis say the fiscal package wending its way through Congress doesn’t go far enough in providing funding to states and localities that are facing unprecedented financial pressures as they battle the coronavirus.New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said the $3.8 billion for his state and $1.3 billion for New York City is a “drop in the bucket.” Lost tax revenue will cost the state as much as $15 billion, he said. Governor Gavin Newsom of California, which has the third-highest U.S. case count, said he strongly believes the federal government will need to do more. Both are Democrats.Maryland Governor Larry Hogan, a Republican who chairs the National Governors Association, said at a press conference Wednesday that “we’re gonna come back and ask for additional funding for the states and local governments to help with this crisis in the next round of stimulus.”Trump Expected to Have FEMA Direct Supplies Among States (6:24 a.m. HK)The Trump administration is expected to soon direct how manufacturers will distribute crucial medical supplies -- including protective gear and ventilators -- to combat the outbreak, alleviating what U.S. governors have complained is a chaotic marketplace for the products.The Federal Emergency Management Agency will take charge of allocating the supplies nationwide, according to three people familiar with the matter, under a clause of the Defense Production Act.Read full story hereWhite House Girds for ‘Very Big’ Jump in U.S. Jobless (4:25 p.m. NY)White House chief economic adviser Larry Kudlow said a government report due Thursday will show a “very large increase” in the number of Americans filing for unemployment benefits. While he declined to offer a specific number, California Governor Gavin Newsom said Wednesday that 1 million in the state have filed claims since March 13.Recent estimates from economists at Wall Street banks have ranged from 2.25 million to 4 million.N.J.’s Virus Numbers on Track to Echo N.Y.’s (4:20 p.m. NY)Northern New Jersey is on track for the kind of viral surge that New York is experiencing, the state’s health commissioner said on Wednesday.Judy Persichilli said the trends in her state were tracking those of neighboring New York, which projects a peak infection rate in 14 to 21 days.“When we see this peak in New York, I think we can expect Bergen, Essex and Hudson counties will follow the trends,” she said at a news conference in Trenton on New Jersey’s response to the pandemic.Read full story hereU.K.’s Johnson Threatens Action to Stop Profiteering (4 p.m. NY)U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson said he’s considering making profiteering illegal as Britain battles the coronavirus, following reports that some firms had been hiking prices on essential products.“We are looking very carefully at what’s going on,” Johnson said at a press conference Wednesday. “I do not want to see people exploiting peoples’ need at a critical time, a national emergency.”WHO: Countries Wasted Time Amid Spread (2:52 p.m. NY)The world squandered a window of opportunity to fight the coronavirus and many actions should have been taken one or two months ago, according to World Health Organization Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus. The WHO chief himself didn’t call the coronavirus a pandemic until mid-March.Worldwide lockdowns have created a second window of opportunity that shouldn’t be wasted, he said at a press briefing in Geneva. There are 150 countries with fewer than 100 reported cases, he said, adding that those in lockdown should use this time to contain the virus.“The last thing any country needs is to reopen schools and businesses only to close them again because of resurgent cases,” he said.New Cases Decline in Italy (1:50 p.m. NY)Italy reported that new coronavirus cases fell on Wednesday, after nearly three weeks of lockdown measures. There were 5,210 new cases, compared with 5,249 a day earlier.Fatalities from the disease over the past 24 hours totaled 683, compared with 743 on Tuesday, according to figures from the civil protection agency. Confirmed cases in the country now total 74,386.The news came as the government broadened rules that shield companies from hostile takeovers as the virus takes a heavy toll on the economy.N.Y. Restricts Access To Malaria Drugs (12:15 p.m. NY)New York Governor Andrew Cuomo joined other states in restricting access to malaria treatments that President Donald Trump has touted for the novel coronavirus despite a lack of proof they will work.Cuomo updated an executive order Monday evening to block pharmacists from filling prescriptions for the malaria drugs chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine for any uses not approved by the Food and Drug Administration unless it is for a patient who has tested positive for Covid-19 and is part of a clinical trial. The medications are not approved to treat coronavirus.The government doesn’t typically impose on the practice of medicine. Doctors are typically allowed to prescribe drugs for any illness or condition, not just those a specific medication is approved to treat. Ohio, Texas, Idaho and Nevada have also moved to limit access to the drugs.Most NYC Covid-19 Dead Had Other Health Problems (11:30 a.m. NY)Ninety-five percent of New York City’s almost 200 deaths from the new coronavirus had underlying health conditions, though almost half were under the age of 75, according to data published by the city’s health department on Tuesday.The deaths, as well as data on cases and hospitalizations, mimic the patterns found in other cities with major outbreaks.

There is a separate pot of about $350 billion for small businesses. For individuals, the legislation provides direct payments to lower- and middle-income Americans of $1,200 for each adult, as well as $500 for each child. Unemployment insurance would be vastly expanded.The House is scheduled to vote on the legislation Friday. President Donald Trump has urged Congress to act “without delay” and said he would sign the legislation immediately.U.S. Coronavirus Death Toll Passes 1,000 (11:41 a.m. HK)Over 1,000 people in the U.S. have died from the coronavirus, according to data tracked by Johns Hopkins University.That puts the U.S.’s death toll just behind France, which has 1,331 deaths. Italy has suffered the highest death toll in the widening global pandemic, with more than 7,500 deaths as of Thursday.The grim milestone comes as cases of infection in the U.S. rapidly increase and the World Health Organization warned that the country could become the next epicenter of the worldwide outbreak.Japan to Set up Panel Looking at Emergency Declaration (11:37 a.m. HK)Japan will set up a panel as soon as Thursday to consider declaring an emergency over the coronavirus pandemic, Economy Minister Yasutoshi Nishimura said. While he told reporters at a briefing Thursday that the Abe administration isn’t thinking of declaring an emergency now, Health Minister Katsunobu Kato said he has told the prime minister there’s a high risk of the virus spreading broadly.Governors of prefectures neighboring Tokyo will join their counterpart from the Japanese capital in urging people to stay home over the weekend, Kyodo reported.

The government said it now sees a sharp contraction in the economy of 1% to 4% for the full year.Even so, Deputy Prime Minister Heng Swee Keat advised against having “excessive expectations” about the size of the upcoming budget aimed at addressing the outbreak.Singapore was among the first outside of China to be hit with coronavirus cases earlier this quarter, and it is often seen as a bellwether for global trade given the openness of its economy. New Zealand’s economy could also contract by as much as 10%, initial estimates of economists show.South Korea Joins Ranks of Central Banks Deploying QE (9:37 a.m. HK)The Bank of Korea will conduct weekly money-market operations aimed at providing an “unlimited” amount of liquidity for three months. The initiative will start in April, and is designed to stabilize financial markets. It “wouldn’t be too wrong” to see the move as quantitative easing, a BOK official said.The sharpest spike in years in premiums for companies to borrow in many funding markets around the world has pushed global monetary policy makers to adopt unorthodox measures. The U.S., Australia, New Zealand and several others have all taken unprecedented actions this month.EU Vows to Be ‘Vigilant’ on Possible Hostile Takeovers (7:25 a.m. HK)European Union regulators warned about hostile foreign takeovers of EU-based companies as a result of the economic slump triggered by the pandemic, putting the spotlight on medical businesses.

He noted that the number of cases in the southern hemisphere is rising as the winter season approaches there.“I know we’ll be successful in putting this down now. But we really need to be prepared for another cycle,” Fauci said. He said it’s vital that a vaccine be developed for the next cycle, along with a “menu” of treatment drugs that have been shown to be successful and safe.At the same briefing, White House coronavirus task force member Deborah Birx highlighted that the number of new cases in New York City has been relatively constant the past three days, and said that “we’re close to working through the testing backlog.”U.S. Governors Say Federal Stimulus Package Provides States Insufficient Funding (6:47 a.m. HK)U.S. governors whose states have been hardest hit by the crisis say the fiscal package wending its way through Congress doesn’t go far enough in providing funding to states and localities that are facing unprecedented financial pressures as they battle the coronavirus.New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said the $3.8 billion for his state and $1.3 billion for New York City is a “drop in the bucket.” Lost tax revenue will cost the state as much as $15 billion, he said. Governor Gavin Newsom of California, which has the third-highest U.S. case count, said he strongly believes the federal government will need to do more. Both are Democrats.Maryland Governor Larry Hogan, a Republican who chairs the National Governors Association, said at a press conference Wednesday that “we’re gonna come back and ask for additional funding for the states and local governments to help with this crisis in the next round of stimulus.”Trump Expected to Have FEMA Direct Supplies Among States (6:24 a.m. HK)The Trump administration is expected to soon direct how manufacturers will distribute crucial medical supplies -- including protective gear and ventilators -- to combat the outbreak, alleviating what U.S. governors have complained is a chaotic marketplace for the products.The Federal Emergency Management Agency will take charge of allocating the supplies nationwide, according to three people familiar with the matter, under a clause of the Defense Production Act.Read full story hereWhite House Girds for ‘Very Big’ Jump in U.S. Jobless (4:25 p.m. NY)White House chief economic adviser Larry Kudlow said a government report due Thursday will show a “very large increase” in the number of Americans filing for unemployment benefits.

The WHO chief himself didn’t call the coronavirus a pandemic until mid-March.Worldwide lockdowns have created a second window of opportunity that shouldn’t be wasted, he said at a press briefing in Geneva. There are 150 countries with fewer than 100 reported cases, he said, adding that those in lockdown should use this time to contain the virus.“The last thing any country needs is to reopen schools and businesses only to close them again because of resurgent cases,” he said.New Cases Decline in Italy (1:50 p.m. NY)Italy reported that new coronavirus cases fell on Wednesday, after nearly three weeks of lockdown measures. There were 5,210 new cases, compared with 5,249 a day earlier.Fatalities from the disease over the past 24 hours totaled 683, compared with 743 on Tuesday, according to figures from the civil protection agency. Confirmed cases in the country now total 74,386.The news came as the government broadened rules that shield companies from hostile takeovers as the virus takes a heavy toll on the economy.N.Y. Restricts Access To Malaria Drugs (12:15 p.m. NY)New York Governor Andrew Cuomo joined other states in restricting access to malaria treatments that President Donald Trump has touted for the novel coronavirus despite a lack of proof they will work.Cuomo updated an executive order Monday evening to block pharmacists from filling prescriptions for the malaria drugs chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine for any uses not approved by the Food and Drug Administration unless it is for a patient who has tested positive for Covid-19 and is part of a clinical trial. The medications are not approved to treat coronavirus.The government doesn’t typically impose on the practice of medicine. Doctors are typically allowed to prescribe drugs for any illness or condition, not just those a specific medication is approved to treat. Ohio, Texas, Idaho and Nevada have also moved to limit access to the drugs.Most NYC Covid-19 Dead Had Other Health Problems (11:30 a.m. NY)Ninety-five percent of New York City’s almost 200 deaths from the new coronavirus had underlying health conditions, though almost half were under the age of 75, according to data published by the city’s health department on Tuesday.The deaths, as well as data on cases and hospitalizations, mimic the patterns found in other cities with major outbreaks. New York City had more than 15,000 Covid-19 cases as of 5 p.m. Tuesday, the largest outbreak in the U.S.Read the full story hereFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.

  • 19/27   Oil Rally Falters With Demand Dread Countering Stimulus Progress
    TECHNOLOGY TOPIC NEWS

    (Bloomberg) -- Oil’s recovery rally went into reverse as mounting evidence of the demand devastation being wrought by the coronavirus outweighed progress on a U.S. economic rescue package.Futures in New York fell around 3% to below $24 a barrel after rallying 9% over the previous three days. The U.S. Senate approved a $2 trillion stimuls plan after days of intense negotiations, putting pressure on the House to pass the bill quickly and send it to President Donald Trump for his signature.As global virus cases approached half a million and India imposed the world’s biggest lockdown, Goldman Sachs Group Inc. warned that crude demand would fall by almost 19 million barrels a day next month. The collapse would lead to an “unprecedented shock” for the global refining system, with product storage saturation set to occur over the next several weeks, the bank said in a note.While the White House is pressing Saudi Arabia to dial back its plan to flood the oil market, any potential agreement with the U.S. and Russia will be too little and too late, according to Goldman. Indian refineries are preparing to slash the amount of crude they process to as little as half their normal rates, according to estimates from one of the country’s biggest Middle Eastern suppliers.“We’re going to see WTI at the $20 level or even $15-$17 because everyone is so focused on the impact of the virus and it’s at a critical level for the U.S.,” said Edward Moya, senior market analyst at OANDA. “We’re going to continue to see demand coming down and we’re still going to have overall caution on the return of travel and trade.”West Texas Intermediate for May delivery dropped 3.2% to $23.71 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange as of 7:25 a.m. in London after closing up 2% on Wednesday. It’s plunged 47% so far in March.Brent for May settlement declined 2.2% to $26.80 a barrel on the ICE Futures Europe exchange after finishing 0.9% higher on Wednesday. The global benchmark crude traded at a $3.09 premium to WTI.In the U.S., crude production remained near record highs last week, according to data from the Energy Information Administration. American oil inventories climbed for a ninth week to 455 million barrels, the longest rising streak since November 2018. Shale producers will probably try and fight to survive and generate cash, so supply may not ease that much, OANDA’s Moya said.Meanwhile, funding for President Trump’s plan to fill up the nation’s emergency oil reserve to help struggling drillers cope with the price crash failed to make it into the latest stimulus legislation but could return in other forms.For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.

    Japan's Government Pension Investment Fund will allow as much as 31% of its assets to be invested in foreign bonds, two sources familiar with the matter said, reflecting more leniency for the fund to overshoot its formal allocation target.

The 37-year-old is part of a team of engineers sealed off during two-week shifts to make sure gas taps stay open - and buildings warm - during a coronavirus epidemic that has killed more than 7,000 Italians and is sweeping Europe.
