On his Instagram page today, the Amazon CEO—not known for his charitable side—said he will commit $10 billion to “fund scientists, activists, NGOs” and other efforts to fight the ravages of climate change and protect the environment.

“Climate change is the biggest threat to our planet,” Bezos said in the post. “I want to work alongside others both to amplify known ways and to explore new ways of fighting the devastating impact of climate change on this planet we all share.” .../..

Have you ever watched any movies where the protagonist works for some international organization like the UN? You would NEVER see an American or UK protagonist working for the UN in those flicks, but you would definitely see someone from Japan, South Africa, China, etc.

Check out some Jackie Chan or Godzilla movies, and watch closely. You'll see what I mean.

The point is, Tedros is a figurehead of an organization that is largely present for propaganda and appearance. From a public health perspective, Tedros and the WHO is utterly f***ing useless. But for publicity and propaganda, they serve their purpose.

London coronavirus patient turned up at hospital in Uber taxi

dc CB  23:34:06 GMT - 02/16/2020  
Recall I posted the Guradian story about the 'infected' woman who took an Uber to the hospital. The "national ?health?" said that the Uber driver wasn't in contact long enough to catch the virus.

Well here's a similar story. So which is it? Super contagious or no-big-deal.???
Because lot's of northern hemisphere people take winter vacations in Hawaii --- it's prime surfing season too.

But the NYT reporter did find a local resident named John Fujiwara who believes the Japanese patient is a friend of his whom he refued to name. The man recently visited Hawaii and met Fujiwara for a coffee before exchanging gifts of chocolates.

Fujiwara said he reached out to a local paper and Hawaiian state health officials with his story. They told him not to panic, and when he offered to self-quarantine, the state said he should go about his day as normal, but report any suspicious symptoms.

Let's back up for a second: We suspect we're not the only ones who were surprised - and not exactly reassured - by the state's response to this man.

True, he could be wrong. But isn't it better to be safe than sorry when a simple one-line email from the state could have put this man in a self-quarantine?

Instead, the man says he plans to go out with his girlfriend as normal because he "has it in writing from the state."

"But Xi's communists seized the shipments and diverted them for use by more important persons."

According to various accounts, it's SOP for mainland China, unfortunately, and it is a major source of frustration for many around the world. All supplies and things like that are immediately grabbed by the CCP and sent to different places either for use by VIPs, or often for resale. Yeah, those medical masks that were sent with the best of humanitarian intentions might very well have been grabbed by some money-grubbing CCP crony to be sold on the open market for whatever they can get.

The ban was so questionable, it sent shockwaves across the mainstream media, even making it as far as CBS National News, who stated: "The financial website Zero Hedge is now barred from Twitter after publishing an article relaying a conspiracy theory that a Chinese scientist might be to blame for the coronavirus outbreak."

This morning, CNBC's Eunice Yoon did an interview with Joe Kernen on Squawk Box where she offered an update on-the-ground in China. Among the topics discussed with Kernen was the origins of the virus. Yoon admitted in her discussion with Kernen that there was a "theory" going around China that the virus could be man made.

the prefrontal cortex is a little immature in teenagers as compared to adults; it may not fully develop until your mid-20s [source: Kotulak]

Adult brains are also better wired to notice errors in decision-making. While adults performed tasks that required the quick response of pushing buttons, their brains sent out a signal when a hasty mistake was made. Before 80 milliseconds had passed, adult brains had noticed the blunder, but teenage brains didn't notice any slip-up [source: Monastersky].

MacroMicro 17:18 The "core to rule" is a key value to observe when watching leaders and nations. In the United States, for example, "freedom" is a key value.

In Canada (and to be honest, among the Democrat party here in the US), "good government" is a key value. Among those who hold such values dear, the Chinese system of government and its brutal efficiency is often something to admire.

If, on the other hand, you believe that "freedom" and especially "freedom from government" are dear values, then you're probably not going to admire the Chinese system very much.

Robert Isaacson, 42, whose 75-year-old mother is on the Bayonne-bound ship, told The Post he is worried for her because of a cruise ship in Hong Kong that’s been quarantined after crew members complained of having coronavirus symptoms.

“I sent her an email about that during her cruise so we were aware of the situation but we figured that is Asia, odds of that happening here are much much smaller,” Isaacson, who lives in Jersey City, said in a text message.

He added crew members on his mother’s ship have not alerted passengers of the sick people on board.

(fwiw: a question--- what is the average age of people on these cruises.)

After viewing lots of blogs (both professional and amateur), various websites and the like, the consensus view (if there is one to be had) seems to be that China is doing what they can, but it is too little and too late to adequately address the present situation from a real public health perspective. As has always been the case, the central government is doing things first for appearance, and second for suppression.

According to various websites, the pictures of hospitals being built are generic stock photos taken from Chinese construction companies. Genuine hospitals have very complex infrastructure (plumbing, ventilation, etc.) and take lots of time to build and staff. What the pictures show are holes being dug and lots of construction modules being put together. Nobody to date has vouched for their authenticity, and even if they were authentic they do not make a hospital.

What IS apparently being done is the lockup of residents. Cities and neighborhoods under armed guard, doors being blocked with bricks and metal bars, heavy quarantine...things like that. This is being done to prevent the spread of the disease as well as to prevent social disorder.

If you believe the Epoch Times (it's close to Falun Gong), they say in this attached article that 11 cities are on the CCP priority list for survival. That means that they will be protected at all costs, even if other cities have to be sacrificed: Beijing, Tianjin, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Hong Kong, Hangzhou, Xi'an, Shenyang, Harbin, Urumqi. For those who are familiar with China's city classification system, this includes some of Tier 1, a couple of Tier 2, and none of Tier 3.

....he will be successful, especially as the weather starts to warm & the virus hopefully becomes weaker, and then gone. Great discipline is taking place in China, as President Xi strongly leads what will be a very successful operation. We are working closely with China to help!

example of communist bureaucratic efficiency:
for the grandiously peddled "hospitals" being built at record speed in wuhan (six days) the communists ordered 400 high efficiency (down to nano-scale) air purifiers from a quebec company. Those purifiers are still sitting here. Reason: no transportation arragements made possible, so puppies r sitting and waiting for some communist apparatchik to wake up and issue appropriate orders.

To boost one's own anti-virus defenses it is probably a good partial idea to:

(Bloomberg) -- The libertarian financial website Zero Hedge was permanently suspended from Twitter on Friday after it published an article questioning the involvement of a Chinese scientist in the outbreak of the deadly novel coronavirus

On its website, Zero Hedge’s pseudonymous author “Tyler Durden” said he received a notification from Twitter that he had violated “our rules against abuse and harassment.

Since being founded in the depths of the financial crisis, Zero Hedge has built a dedicated following by serving up a mix of hardcore financial analysis and populist political commentary.

In 2016, Bloomberg revealed the identities of Zero Hedge’s three main writers. They were Colin Lokey, who quit the blog, Tim Backshall, a credit derivatives strategist, and Daniel Ivandjiiski, a Bulgarian-born former analyst long-rumored to be behind the site.

The 17-year-old Swede took to Instagram to explain - in great detail - why she has applied to trademark her name and her movement 'Fridays for Future' to prevent them from being misused for commercial reasons.

Impostors, trademarks, commercial interests, royalties and foundation...

First: Unfortunately there are still people who are trying to impersonate me or falsely claim that they "represent" me in order to communicate with high profile people, politicians, media, artists etc. Please be aware that this is happening and be extremely suspicious if you are contacted by ”me” or someone saying they ”represent” me.

I apologize to anyone who has been contacted - and even misled - by this kind of behavior.

Second: My name and the #FridaysForFuture movement are constantly being used for commercial purposes without any consent whatsoever. It happens for instance in marketing, selling of products and people collecting money in my and the movement’s name.

That is why I’ve applied to register my name, Fridays For Future, Skolstrejk för klimatet etc as trademarks. This action is to protect the movement and its activities. It is also needed to enable my pro bono legal help to take necessary action against people or corporations etc who are trying to use me and the movement in purposes not in line with what the movement stands for. I assure you, I and the other school strikers have absolutely no interests in trademarks. But unfortunately it needs to be done.

Fridays For Future is a global movement founded by me. It belongs to anyone taking part in it, above all the young people. It can - and must - not be used for individual or commercial purposes.

And third: together with my family I’m setting up a foundation. It’s already registered and existing, but it not is not yet up and running. This is strictly nonprofit of course and there are no interests in philanthropy. It is just something that is needed for handling money (book royalties, donations, prize money etc) in a completely transparent way. For instance, taxes have to be paid before we can give them away to specified purposes and charities. This takes a lot of time and work, and when the foundation is fully up and running I will tell you more.

The foundation’s aim will be to promote ecological, climatic and social sustainability as well as mental health.

"Facebook helped Trump to get elected and I am afraid that it will do the same in 2020," Soros writes in a Friday New York Times Op-Ed, recounting a private conversation he says he had last week at Davos in which he argued "here is a longstanding law — Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act — that protects social media platforms from legal liability for defamation and similar claims. Facebook can post deliberately misleading or false statements by candidates for public office and others, and take no responsibility for them."

Soros then claims that there appears to be "an informal mutual assistance operation or agreement developing between Trump and Facebook" in which "Facebook will help President Trump to get re-elected and Mr. Trump will, in turn, defend Facebook against attacks from regulators and the media."

The epicenter of the outbreak is Wuhan, one of China’s largest manufacturing centers. Foxconn and Pegatron have operations there, as do memory manufacturers such as XMC (nor flash) and Yangtze Memory Technologies Co. (non-volatile memory).

Auto producers, such as General Motors, Honda, Volkswagen, BMW and Daimler also populate the region.

The electronics industry is poised for a cascading disruption that could change industry growth forecasts for the year. Bill McLean, president of semiconductor research firm IC Insights, said the virus has exacerbated the economic unease that has stalled semiconductor capital investment.

“Brexit, trade issues and now the coronavirus are causing global uncertainty,” he said at a Boston-based forum. “Uncertainty causes [businesses and consumers] to freeze.” Worldwide, semiconductor capital spending is forecast to decrease by roughly 6 percent this year, from $103.5 billion in 2019 to roughly $97.6 billion.

Zhang Ming, an economist at government-backed think-tank the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, warned that the virus could push China’s economic growth below 5 per cent a year in the first quarter, reported the Financial Times. Economic consensus currently puts China’s GDP growth at 5.7 percent. That average has steadily declined since 2018, according to McLean. — EE Times

More than 300 of the Global Top 500 companies have a presence in Wuhan, including Microsoft and Siemens. Wuhan is located in the Hubei Province.
Most factories lose about two weeks of production in total during the Lunar Holiday but more production will be lost as the holiday has been extended.

BEIJING, Jan. 29 (Xinhua) -- President Xi Jinping has ordered Chinese military to keep its mission firmly in mind and shoulder responsibility to make contributions to winning the battle against the novel coronavirus epidemic.

To meet the expectations and fulfill the task, the military must strengthen leadership, enhance coordination with local authorities, adhere to scientific treatment, and pay attention to their own protection,

Xi added.

From a trading perspective, the best information will come from "open" places with a mixture of official plus independent sources. The independent sources can be "proper" journalists, but in the modern era they could also be people who have blogs and YouTube channels. The independent sources will help to keep the official sources honest. It is up to the trader, of course, as to which sources they deem credible, be they official or independent.

The "closed" places will offer some information, but to steal JP's language the words will more often be a bunch of BS that is meant to be mushroom fodder more than anything enlightening. Also, be very wary of quotes from "outside" sources like that guy Tedros Adhanom from the WHO (dc CB 20:20 Jan 30). He may be the WHO top dog, but China is a WHO member and China butters his bread. (Tedros is from the Ethiopian government, and Ethiopia is heavily indebted to China.) He is not going to say anything that offends his paymasters.

It is reasonable to expect that the countries that practice modern medical and sanitation practices will do all right with respect to the outbreak. This is most places around the world. There will be variants due to extreme poverty, overpopulation or climate, but even the countries that have those problems will do the best they can using modern practices.

Where the virus will thrive is in places that practice quackery. There are still some places in the world where old wives tales and superstition are predominant. Those are the places to worry about.

i and am sure many others would like to see a 5% plus correction. if they can make a poor session stick into the close today, then we may get a chance to buy a dip not seen since dec 2018. presently we are at last months high so still a bit of work to do to make that tail on the monthly candle look promising. fwiw the channel from 2010 to 2017 on monthly s&p was hit and marginally breached this month. but as i say i wouldnt short it. rather wait to pick up pieces, if there turn out to be any, as dips are few and far between.

I don't see that as fighting a trend. more as process to be positioned right when suddenly gravity takes control in aspect of market pricing. with NQ above 9200 after the run since August it is demanding to be strategically minded to SHORT the indices for a heathy correction. not blindly but at certain time/price points that allow to end with gains even if only scalping level.

sorry for the long answer :)

Fashion retailer Nordstrom gets it: Americans are becoming poorer, and it's time for it to capitalize on recommerce, otherwise known as reverse commerce, which basically means Nordstrom is going to sell secondhand clothing.

So, move over local consignment stores, and or Goodwill Industries, eBay, and The Salvation Army, there's a new player in town, Nordstrom, that will jump into the recommerce industry on Jan. 31.

Nordstrom's "See You Tomorrow" store will have a dedicated section at its New York flagship store, opens tomorrow, and will sell secondhand luxury clothes. There's also going to be a section on the company's website that will list a catalog of used clothing, the company said in press release, dated Jan. 30.

Nordstrom's closet recommerce competitor will be The RealReal, an online and brick-and-mortar marketplace for authenticated luxury consignment, as the industry for used clothing increased to $28 billion in 2019.
