  • 39/82   U.S. Retail Sales Rise Most in Three Months, Topping Estimates
    TECHNOLOGY TOPIC NEWS

    (Bloomberg) -- U.S. retail sales rose in September at the fastest pace in three months, topping forecasts and capping a third-quarter rebound for consumer spending that faces increasing headwinds.The value of overall sales increased 1.9% from the prior month after a 0.6% gain in August, Commerce Department figures showed Friday. The median estimate in a Bloomberg survey of economists called for a 0.8% gain.

    (Bloomberg) -- U.S. retail sales rose in September at the fastest pace in three months, topping forecasts and capping a third-quarter rebound for consumer spending that faces increasing headwinds.The value of overall sales increased 1.9% from the prior month after a 0.6% gain in August, Commerce Department figures showed Friday. The median estimate in a Bloomberg survey of economists called for a 0.8% gain. Excluding autos and gasoline, sales rose 1.5%.Yields on 10-year Treasuries jumped following the report, while U.S. stock futures extended gains.The broad-based gain may partly reflect consumers tapping elevated savings, with demand also supported by temporary extra jobless benefits and continued hiring.

  • 47/82   California: 100,000 people without power amid extreme wildfire risk
    POLITICS TOPIC NEWS

    PG&E began shutting off power on Wednesday evening to customers in portions of 24 counties as a ‘last-resort option’Thousands of people in northern California were without power on Thursday amid an autumn heatwave that brought another round of extreme wildfire danger.The utility company Pacific Gas & Electric (PG&E) began shutting off power on Wednesday evening to about 50,000 customers – about 100,000 people – in portions of 24 counties, mainly in the Sierra Nevada foothills and the San Francisco Bay Area. Another 20,000 people were expected to lose power later on Thursday. The outages were a “last-resort option”, said Mark Quinlan, PG&E’s incident commander.The National Weather Service had issued heat advisories through Friday for temperatures in the 90s and even triple digits in many parts of the state. Red-flag warnings were up in much of the San Francisco Bay Area, where Diablo winds bringing hot, dry gusts up to 55mph (88.5km/h) were expected to pose a threat of sparking new blazes in a region that already has seen some of the worst wildfires in state history.In southern California, a brush fire on Thursday near Redlands triggered a small evacuation as it grew to about 100 acres (40 hectares). It was about 30% contained.> A Heat Advisory has been issued and is valid from 11am Thurs through 9pm Fri. Hot daytime temperatures and mild to warm overnight lows are forecasted. Near record temperatures are possible for a few areas. This will result in continued increased risk of heat related illness. pic.twitter.com/eJESZiZbxw> > — NWS Bay Area (@NWSBayArea) October 14, 2020Hot weather also prompted California’s electrical grid operator to issue a statewide Flex Alert, urging people to conserve energy between 3pm and 10pm on Thursday by turning down their air conditioners and not using major appliances. Previous conservation efforts this summer were praised for reducing the power demand and avoiding rolling blackouts.PG&E’s power cuts were the third in less than two months. They aim to prevent equipment such as power lines from sparking wildfires if they are fouled or blown down by the winds. PG&E equipment has been found at fault in two of the deadliest wildfires in California’s recent history, including the 2018 blaze that destroyed much of the town of Paradise and killed 85 people.The PG&E senior meteorologist Scott Strenfel said the forecast called for two “back-to-back” periods when Diablo winds would sweep the region. In addition to high gusts, they bring very dry air “and essentially suck the moisture out of vegetation”, leaving it vulnerable to burning.Several of the counties falling under the PG&E shutoffs already were hit by huge wildfires. The Glass fire, which ravaged the northern California wine country of Napa and Sonoma counties was surrounded on Wednesday after destroying more than 1,500 homes and other buildings.Farther north, the Zogg fire in Shasta and Tehama counties was fully contained. Four people died in that blaze.Kathleen Collins has had to evacuate her home in the mountains of Napa county four times in the past five years due to fires. This summer, she lived in a motel for two weeks after leaving her home when a large cluster of fires reached her tiny community of Pope Valley.“It’s all very stressful. People are not happy but there’s not much they can do about it,” said Collins, assistant manager at a hardware store in Calistoga. Collins said she received a message alerting her that her home would lose power on Wednesday night and she dreaded having to throw away all her refrigerated food as in past outages. Fortunately, she hadn’t lost electricity as of Thursday.More than 8,500 wildfires have burned more than 6,400 sq miles (16,000 sq km) in California since the start of the year, most since mid-August. Thirty-one people have died, and more than 9,200 buildings have been destroyed.Most of the huge fires that erupted over the past eight weeks are now fully or significantly contained but the gains could be hampered if new fires ignite, said Daniel Berlant, assistant deputy director with the California department of forestry and fire protection, known as Cal Fire.“If a new fire breaks out, that fire will be able to grow very quickly under these conditions,” Berlant said.An Associated Press analysis of pollution data and interviews with physicians, health authorities and researchers revealed on Thursday that the wildfires that have ravaged the US west in recent weeks have exposed millions of people to hazardous pollution levels.Smoke at concentrations that topped the government’s charts for health risks and lasted at least a day enshrouded counties inhabited by more than 8 million people across five states in recent weeks, the AP’s analysis shows.Major cities in Oregon, which have been especially hard hit, last month suffered the highest pollution levels they have ever recorded when fires hit the state.Doctors told the Guardian they had witnessed an alarming surge in hospital visits related to air pollution. In northern California’s Stanford health care system, hospitals saw a stunning increase in cerebrovascular conditions such as strokes. In Oregon, health officials reported nearly one out of 10 people visiting the emergency room in early September had asthma-like conditions due to the smoke. And in San Francisco, doctors had to cancel their clinics for recovering Covid-19 patients because the air was so unhealthy that just getting to their appointments could make patients sicker.Experts said that the smoke can have an almost immediate effect on people’s health, causing asthma, heart attacks, kidney problems and even mental health issues to surge.Numerous studies have linked bigger wildfires in the US to climate breakdown from the burning of coal, oil and gas. Scientists have said climate change has made California much drier, meaning trees and other plants are more flammable.

    POLITICS TOPIC NEWS

    Kurdish-led authorities in northeast Syria have freed hundreds of imprisoned Islamic State militants, saying they have "no blood on their hands" and have repented joining the terrorist group. A first batch of 631 Syrian IS prisoners was released on Thursday, while 253 had their sentences halved, according to Syrian Democratic Council co-chair Amina Omar. The released were Syrian nationals accused of low-level membership in IS who were not thought to have been commanders or involved in attacks. "This includes those convicted of terror charges whose hands are not stained with the blood of Syrians,” Ms Omar said at a press conference in the northeast city of Qamishli. Following the territorial defeat of IS last March, the western-backed Syrian Democratic Forces were left holding some 19,000 ISIS-affiliated men and boys in detention in some two dozen detention facilities spread across northeast Syria.

  • 64/82   WHO: Study finds 4 drugs have little to no effect on COVID
    WORLD TOPIC NEWS

    The U.N. health agency says the world's largest randomized trial of COVID-19 treatments found “conclusive evidence” that remdesivir, a drug used to treat U.S. President Donald Trump when he fell ill, has little or no effect on severe cases.  The World Health Organization announced Friday the long-awaited results of its six-month “Solidarity Therapeutics Trial” that endeavored to see if existing drugs might have an effect on the coronavirus.  The study, which was not peer-reviewed, found that four treatments tested — remdesivir, hydroxychloroquine, lopinavir/ritonavir and interferon — had “ little or no effect' on whether or not patients died within about a month or whether hospitalized patients recovered.

    Yemen’s warring sides completed a major, U.N.-brokered prisoner swap on Friday, officials said, a development that could revive the country’s stalled peace process after more than five years of grinding conflict.  This week's prisoner release, the largest-ever in the war, marks a breakthrough in the implementation of a long-awaited deal between Yemen's Iran-backed Houthi rebels and a Saudi-led military coalition supporting the country's internationally recognized government.  “We're very happy this operation has concluded with success, regardless of how challenging it was to put it together,” said Yara Khawaja, a spokeswoman for the International Committee of the Red Cross in Yemen, which has overseen the swap.

    WORLD TOPIC NEWS

    British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said on Friday, the U.K. must prepare for a no-deal break with the European Union unless there is a 'fundamental' change of position from the bloc.  Johnson said the E.U. was refusing to give Britain a trade deal like the one it has with Canada, which the U.K. is seeking.  Refusing to bow to U.K. pressure, E.U. Commission chief Ursula von der Leyen said less than an hour after Johnson made his ultimatum, that the E.U. still wants a Brexit trade deal 'but not at any price.'

    Russian President Vladimir Putin on Friday made a strong call to save the last existing nuclear arms control pact between his country and the United States, proposing to extend it at least for one year.  Putin's statement comes amid conflicting signals from Russian and U.S. diplomats about the fate of the New START treaty that is set to expire in February unless Moscow and Washington agree on its extension.

  • 70/82   You Can’t Blame the EU for Not Trusting Boris Johnson
    WORLD TOPIC NEWS

    (Bloomberg Opinion) -- This is not the Brexit endgame Boris Johnson expected. Thursday was supposed to be the U.K. prime minister’s make-or-break moment for reaching a trade deal with the European Union before the transition period ends on Dec. 31. Without an agreement by then, both sides should just “move on,” he said last month. It was part of a hardball strategy that also involved a proposed law that set the U.K. on course to breach the Brexit departure terms it agreed to barely a year ago.Yet as with previous attempts by Johnson to split the EU’s 27 members — notably France and Germany, the “bad” and “good” cops of Brexit — it backfired.European leaders gathered in Brussels decided that as far as Brexit was concerned there wasn’t much to discuss after all. They agreed they would keep negotiating on the same basis as before, and called on the U.K. to make the next move. The issue of fishing rights, a bone of contention between France’s Emmanuel Macron and Germany’s Angela Merkel, failed to produce much in the way of a public clash. “We are 100% united,” said European Council President Charles Michel.Johnson's response on Friday was blustery but ultimately inconclusive: He heaped scorn on the EU for not giving the U.K. the free-trade deal it wanted and warned it was time to prepare for a “no-deal” outcome, but he also kept the door open for further talks.U.K. negotiator David Frost had earlier said he was “surprised” and “disappointed” by the EU’s stance. But this rings hollow. It shouldn’t shock anyone that the EU tends to stick together when Johnson tries to divide and conquer, especially with a threat to pull the plug on talks (which he’s made  before). There’s a lack of trust here, made worse by Johnson’s Internal Market Bill, which has both angered the EU and stoked divisions within British politics. There is no incentive for the bloc to sell French (and Irish) fishing boats down the river for a deal.Hence why we seem to be stuck in an eternal time loop. Brexit isn’t a celebratory trade negotiation between two actors pursuing mutually beneficial comparative advantage by knocking down barriers. It’s the reverse: A once free flow of trade between both sides ($570 billion in 2019) must now be governed by new terms, with the U.K. tempted to compete aggressively on tax and regulation, while the EU tries to protect its single market from commercial “dumping.” Brexit is for London to exult in, and Brussels to defend against.The trust deficit has made things worse. The U.K. has treated questions of regulatory alignment and state aid as an affront to its sovereignty, which only confirms Brussels’s fears that post-Brexit Britain wants to maximize market access and minimize pesky rules of engagement. Although both sides have softened their positions somewhat, Johnson’s cavalier attitude to respecting the Brexit terms he signed up to — including when he breezily stated he would enforce an agreed customs border in the Irish Sea over his “dead body” — casts doubt on the ability to enforce future agreements.In an ideal world, rather than engaging in more no-deal brinkmanship, the U.K. and EU would keep edging towards compromise — especially when both sides need to focus on battling Covid-19’s second wave. A strong mechanism to settle disputes and a shared state-aid oversight body should be to the U.K.’s benefit, not just the EU’s. As for the fight over fishing, given the U.K. exports 75% of its catch to the EU, it is surely in British interests to keep its neighbors on-side with access agreements that last longer than one year. But until the U.K. shows itself willing to back down on positions like its breach of international law, the issue of trust will remain a sticking point. The EU won’t rush through a trade deal only to have it knocked down by the European Parliament. EU lawmakers have already warned that ratifying any agreement would be conditional on the U.K.’s respect for Brexit terms agreed last year. If Brexit has taught the EU anything, it’s that it pays to stick together in an uncertain world. Donald Trump’s presidency and the assertiveness of China have pushed the Europeans to circle the wagons in defense of their greatest asset: A barrier-free single market promoted by Margaret Thatcher, expanded eastward under Tony Blair, and governed by financial and antitrust rules influenced by British civil servants. Johnson’s legacy, unwittingly, may be only to further strengthen a trading giant the British helped create.(Adds Johnson’s response on Friday in fifth paragraph.)This column does not necessarily reflect the opinion of the editorial board or Bloomberg LP and its owners.Lionel Laurent is a Bloomberg Opinion columnist covering the European Union and France.
