On today's podcast: 1) 1) Israel is coming under increasing pressure to agree to an extension of a four-day pause in its war with Hamas. President Joe Biden said he supports prolonging the cease-fire, which is due to end on Tuesday morning and part of a deal to free hostages held by Hamas in Gaza. The halt in fighting is “critically needed” for additional aid to get into the territory and for more captives to be freed. 2) Rishi Sunak said he condemns antisemitism “in all its forms,” in a careful criticism of Elon Musk that stopped short of the full-throated condemnation by US President Joe Biden and others who have accused the tech entrepreneur of amplifying anti-Jewish hatred on his X social media platform. 3) Black Friday shoppers spent a record $9.8 billion online in the US, Adobe Analytics reported, offering a positive sign for retailers facing lackluster sales forecasts for the holiday season. Full transcript: Good morning. I'm Nathan Hager and I'm Amy Morris. Here are the stories we're following today. First, the latest developments out of the Middle East. Israel and Hamas are signaling that a temporary ceasefire could be extended beyond today. Under the current agreement, Hamas is releasing fifty hostages in exchange for one hundred and fifty Israeli held prisoners. President Biden says he's aiming for this break in fighting to continue. Critically, nay, today is going in and hostages are coming out, and there's still structured so that it can be extended to keep building on these results. That's my goal, that's our goal, to keep this pause going beyond tomorrow. When President Biden spoke yesterday with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who signaled an extension was possible. Meanwhile, Israel is coming under increasing pressure to agree to an extension of a four day pause in it's war with Amas. We get more from Bloomberg's Simon Marx and Tel Aviv. Israel is under some pressure to continue to slow drip releasing hostages. There is still a lot of public pressure here to get many more released, and the families and the victims of the hostage families are still very active. Bloomberg. Simon mar says, so far Hamas has handed over fifty eight hostages, including non Israelis. It is slated to free another eleven Israelis today to fulfill the four day Agreement. And in Washington, the issue of Israeli aid maybe getting more complicated. Bloomberg zed Baxter has that story. Senator Chris Murphy is saying lawmakers should consider conditioning future aid to Israel based on compliance with international humanitarian law. I think there's both a moral cost to this, many civilians, innocent civilians, children often losing their life, but I think there's a strategic cost. Ultimately, Hamas will get stronger, not weaker, in the long run if all of this civilian death allows them to recruit more effectively, enablely inside Gaza. Murphy on CNN civilian death toll must stop, ed Baxter Bloomberg Radio, Thanks D. Another complicating factor in aid to Israel and Ukraine is a dispute over security at the southern border. Republicans in Congress want to tie foreign military assistance to tougher border policies. On NBC's Meet the Press House Intelligence Chair Mike Turner said it will be tough to pass the AID before the end of this year. While the issue remains unresolved. Man Amy events in the Middle East may be forcing President Biden to skip an event he's attended the past two years. According to The New York Times, a White House official says the President will not be at the COP twenty eighth Climate summit in Dubai. The official didn't say why, but senior aids are suggesting the Israel Hamas war has consumed the president in recent weeks. Meanwhile, Elon Musk will today meet with the Israel with Israel's Prime Minister and president, as well as representatives of the families of hostages held in Gaza. The closed door meeting appears to be an effort to diffuse a growing backlash over the billionaire's endorsement of an anti Semitic tweet. While Musk has drawn support from notable figures including hedge fund manager Bill Ackman, others, including British Prime Minister Rishi Sunek, say that Tesla and SpaceX chief should not be given a pass because of who he is. I don't tend to get in the business of scrutinizing what every single person says who I've interacted with. Of course I bore anti Semitism. It doesn't matter whether you're Elil Musk or you or someone on the street who's shouting abuse that someone who happens to be walking past you. That's wrong in all its forms. Antisemitism in all its forms is completely and utterly wrong. So next careful criticism comes just weeks after the British Prime Minister had a fireside conversation with Musk at the UKAI summit. Turning to markets, amy stocks are going higher. That's the call from Deutsche Bank. The firm's strategists, including Binkie Chata, predict the S and P five hundred will rally to a record fifty one hundred by the end of next year. That's about twelve percent above current levels. Chata says stock valuations are not high and earnings are growing solidly. Meanwhile, Wall Street it returns to work with lots of economic data and plenty of earnings reports. We get a preview from Bloomberg's Charlie Pellett. Tech earnings will be in focus this week, with z Scaler and crowd Strike holdings underscoring how businesses are prioritizing cybersecurity after recent high profile corporate hacks. Among the other technology companies reporting this week Salesforce and Dell. In New York Charlie Pellette Bloomberg Radio. Okay, Charlie, thanks for also keeping an eye on retailers today. Well, because it's cyber Monday. The huge online spending day comes after shoppers spend a record online on Black Friday. More on that from Bloomberg's Eddie vendor Wald. What we're seeing is that US consumers spend a record nine point one billion dollars online. That's according to Adobe Analytics. It's a record so far. But we're seeing two interesting trends. Number One, a lot of people are spending on buy now, pay later, and we are seeing them buying less luxury items with this spending. So it feels like the consumer is starting to feel the pitch and rather than going out spending big money is saying, look, this might be a good opportunity to start cutting back out of spending. Bloomberg's Eddie vander Walt says global Black Friday sales rose twenty two percent, led by clothing, personal care, and jewelry. The owner of TikTok is cutting jobs. Bye Dance plans to eliminate hundreds of positions in gaming and wind down at Showpee s brand Uverse. The closure marks by Dan's biggest retreat from a once booming gaming industry dominated by ten Cent and at smaller faux net Ease. Sources say the Chinese company intends to announce the cuts later today. Time now for a look at some of the other stories making news around the world, and for that we're joined by Bloomberg's John Tucker. Good morning Job, Hey, Good morning Amy. The US is investigating whether Iran was behind an incident in which missiles were fired near the Navy destroy USS Mason. The Mason intervene to stop the hijacking of a commercial cargo ship by pirates in the Gulf of Aidenere, Somalia on Sunday, after which two ballistic missiles were fired from Yemen tour the Navy destroyer. The ballistic missiles were fired from the part of Yemen controlled by Iranian backed Hutu rebels. They fell well short of the mark. We could be looking at a shakeup in the battery industry that's critical for the energy transition battery giants are starting to put their money on a new sodium based technology. Let's get more in this report from Bloomberg's Denise Pellegrini. Sodium from rock salt and brines is cheaper and way more abundant than the lithium widely used now in batteries. But in the past week alone, Sweden's Northfold said it made a breakthrough, and China's ev maker BYD signed a deal to build a one point four billion dollar sodium ion battery plant. Also, China's coatl said back in April at sodium based batteries would be used in some vehicles starting this year. This could all hit lithium demand Hardloomberg GETTYF has said sodium could cut hundreds of thousands of tons of lithium demand by twenty thirty five. Denise Pellegridy Bloomberg Radio. This post Thanksgiving travel rush could be won for the books. American Airlines said that it flew six and a half million customers over the holiday, the highest ever for the airline. Of this traveler at New York Liberty Airport spoke for many I travel from California to New York back and forth all the time. I have never had this much of a weight. I don't know why. American says it had more than sixty one hundred departures Sunday and expects about six thousand flights today. The Biden administration today will announce a redoubling it measures to strengthen supply chains. It's creating a new White House Council on Supply Chain Resilience. The council will conduct a supply chain review mirroring similar strategic documents prepared for National Defense at Homeland Security.

Johns dash that We're Bloomberg Sport from coast to coast, from New York to San Francisco, Boston to Washington, DC, nationwide on Syrias Exam, the Bloomberg Business app, and Bloomberg dot Com. This is Bloomberg Daybreak. Good morning. I'm Nathan Hager. Today is scheduled to be the final full day of a four day truce between Israel and Hamas, but after the release of dozens of hostages from Gaza, including a four year old American Israeli girl. Both sides are now signaling this pause could be extended. And for the latest, we're joined from Tel Aviv by Bloomberg News reporter Simon Marx. Simon, good morning. What is the likelihood that we could see an extension given the number of hostages that have been released so far? Well, so far, the chances of this taking place seem to be making some good progress. Hamas has released a statement saying that in theory they would have greed to an extension, and Israel, for the whole way along this current truce, has said that it would be open to further days, So we're talking about ten per day for up to ten days. You know, diplomats in the city do expect that we will see one or two more days. It's a little unclear whether we're going to get to the full ten. But there is obviously a lot of pressure on the government of Benjamin Netta and Yahoo to continue the release of the hostages, with the families still campaigning and very vocal on this front. Yeah, that's happening on the outside. Talk a little bit more about as well, the behind the scenes pressure that's happening with Israel and Hamas to potentially secure a further ceasefire. Yeah. I think the main reason for this is that the international community would like to see more aid get into Gaza. Obviously, the strip has been pounded for weeks now, there's still at least one hundred thousand people in the north with very very limited access to any form of humanitarian care, and then in the south you've got over a million displaced people in you know, really devastating conditions. So there were two hundred trucks that managed to get over the border from Egypt on Sunday. There's been about two thousand in total. But the hope is is that increases a lot a lot more in the coming days. What's the feeling about whether there is enough aid going in right now and whether that aid could potentially be used to support Hamas. There has to still be that concern among the Israelis, right, Yeah, of course, And you know, this is part of the reason why the bureaucracy around getting trucks in, the checks and balances from the Israelis were so stern and and it's also part of the reason why getting aid in was actually difficult in the beginning. That it does seem in recent days to have opened up. There is this notion that, you know, if Israel is to continue its ground offensive against Hamas, that in return, they cannot be seen to be blocking eight you know, and flouting international humanitarian law. But yes, I mean Hamas fighters are spread throughout the Gaza Strip, and many people seem to think that they have a presence in the south too, where there are a lot of civilians. And that factors into a lot of the commentary that we're hearing from a particularly congressional Democrats in Washington, d C. That future aid to Israel might need to be conditioned on international humanitarian law being followed more stringently. How is that potentially factoring in to Israel's decision making when it comes to extending the pause in fighting or carrying on this war even further once whenever the pause ends, it does end well very much. So. Israel are extremely dependent on diplomatic and material support from the United States. Without that, I think, you know that the pressure for them to stop this war is going to mount. So far, we've seen a lot of pressure from Biden's administration to make sure Israel do allowed aid in, but there hasn't been you know, a stringent call for any longer term ceasefire. So it does seem that this green light essentially for Israel to go back in to the Gaza Strip once this truce comes to an end, is very much there, even though perhaps in some other corners of the world, particularly the Gulf and parts of Europe, obviously the pressure is mounting. But yeah, as we all know, the main bidder here is the United States. And as this pause continues, Simon, are there risks of other fronts opening while the pause goes on. I mean there's been sporadic fighting that we've been reporting on in the West Bank, as well as the back and forth over the Israeli Lebanon border. Yes, definitely. As you mentioned the West Bank, I mean just overnight there has been a report there were eight Palestinians killed in the West Bank in an air strike. The situation is very restive there that there is growing settler violence. Since October seven, Jewish settlers in the area have carried out way over two hundred attacks on Palestinian communities, and the Israeli army have also come down pretty tough on demonstrators and suspected sympathizers of Hamas. The population there in general feels like it's being occupied and oppressed, and that the Palestinian authority which runs the show there in some areas, isn't really representative of them. Obviously, if things continue in this direction, there's massive risks of it boiling over, and then, you know, I think beyond that, beyond Israel's borders. So far it has been more or less contained, but it is very, very worrying. We saw Israel strike the airport in Damascus not that long ago, targeting, yeah, targeting Iranian targets there. So clearly it's a it's a huge risk. This is Bloomberg Daybreak Today, your morning brief on the story's making news from Wall Street to Washington and beyond.

This weekly show features conversations with people doing interesting work in the world of cloud, thoughtful commentary on the state of the technical world, and ridiculous titles for which Corey refuses to apologize. This is Screaming in the Cloud.Corey: Welcome to Screaming in the Cloud. I'm Corey Quinn. This promoted guest episode of Screaming in the Cloud is brought to us by our friends at Couchbase. Also brought to us by Couchbase is today's victim, for lack of a better term. Jeff Morris is their VP of Product and Solutions Marketing. Jeff, thank you for joining me.Jeff: Thanks for having me, Corey, even though I guess I paid for it.Corey: Exactly. It's always great to say thank you when people give you things. I learned this from a very early age, and the only people who didn't were rude children and turned into worse adults.Jeff: Exactly.Corey: So, you are effectively announcing something new today, and I always get worried when a database company says that because sometimes it's a license that is going to upset people, sometimes it's dyed so deep in the wool of generative AI that, “Oh, we're now supporting vectors or whatnot.” Well, most of us don't know what that means.Jeff: Right.Corey: Fortunately, I don't believe that's what you're doing today. What have you got for us?Jeff: So, you're right. It's—well, what I'm doing is, we're announcing new stuff inside of Couchbase and helping Couchbase expand its market footprint, but we're not really moving away from our sweet spot, either, right? We like building—or being the database platform underneath applications. So, push us on the operational side of the operational versus analytic, kind of, database divide. But we are announcing a columnar data store inside of the Couchbase platform so that we can build bigger, better, stronger analytic functionality to feed the applications that we're supporting with our customers.Corey: Now, I feel like I should ask a question around what a columnar data store is because my first encounter with the term was when I had a very early client for AWS bill optimization when I was doing this independently, and I was asking them the… polite question of, “Why do you have 283 billion objects in a single S3 bucket? That is atypical and kind of terrifying.” And their answer was, “Oh, we built our own columnar data store on top of S3. This might not have been the best approach.” It's like, “I'm going to stop you there. With no further information, I can almost guarantee you that it was not.” But what is a columnar data store?Jeff: Well, let's start with the, everybody loves more data and everybody loves to count more things, right, but a columnar data store allows you to expedite the kind of question that you ask of the data itself by not having to look at every single row of the data while you go through it. You can say, if you know you're only looking for data that's inside of California, you just look at the column value of find me everything in California and then I'll pick all of those records to analyze. So, it gives you a faster way to go through the data while you're trying to gather it up and perform aggregations against it.Corey: It seems like it's one of those, “Well, that doesn't sound hard,” type of things, when you're thinking about it the way that I do, in terms of a database being more or less a medium to large size Excel spreadsheet. But I have it on good faith from all the customer environments. I've worked with that no, no, there are data stores that span even larger than that, which is, you know, one of those sad realities of the world. And everything at scale begins to be a heck of a lot harder. I've seen some of the value that this stuff offers and I can definitely understand a few different workloads in which case that's going to be super handy. What are you targeting specifically? Or is this one of those areas where you're going to learn from your customers?Jeff: Well, we've had analytic functionality inside the platform. It just, at the size and scale customers actually wanted to roam through the data, we weren't supporting that that much. So, we'll expand that particular footprint, it'll give us better integration capabilities with external systems, or better access to things in your bucket. But the use case problem is, I think, going to be driven by what new modern application requirements are going to be. You're going to need, we call it hyper-personalization because we tend to cater to B2C-style applications, things with a lot of account profiles built into them.So, you look at account profile, and you're like, “Oh, well Jeff likes blue, so sell him blue stuff.” And that's a great current level personalization, but with a new analytic engine against this, you can maybe start aggregating all the inventory information that you might have of all the blue stuff that you want to sell me and do that in real-time, so I'm getting better recommendations, better offers as I'm shopping on your site or looking at my phone and, you know, looking for the next thing I want to buy.Corey: I'm sure there's massive amounts of work that goes into these hyper-personalization stories. The problem is that the only time they really rise to our notice is when they fail hilariously. Like, you just bought a TV, would you like to buy another? Now statistically, you are likelier to buy a second TV right after you buy one, but for someone who just, “Well, I'm replacing my living room TV after ten years,” it feels ridiculous. Or when you buy a whole bunch of nails and they don't suggest, “Would you like to also perhaps buy a hammer?”It's one of those areas where it just seems like a human putting thought into this could make some sense. But I've seen some of the stuff that can come out of systems like this and it can be incredible. I also personally tend to bias towards use cases that are less, here's how to convince you to buy more things and start aiming in a bunch of other different directions where it starts meeting emerging use cases or changing situations rapidly, more rapidly than a human can in some cases. The world has, for better or worse, gotten an awful lot faster over the last few decades.Jeff: Yeah. And think of it in terms of how responsive can I be at any given moment. And so, let's pick on one of the more recent interesting failures that has popped up. I'm a Giants fan, San Francisco Giants fan, so I'll pick on the Dodgers. The Dodgers during the baseball playoffs, Clayton Kershaw—three-time MVP, Cy Young Award winner, great, great pitcher—had a first-inning meltdown of colossal magnitude: gave up 11 runs in the first inning to the Diamondbacks.Well, my customer Domino's Pizza could end up—well, let's shift the focus of our marketing. We—you know, the Dodgers are the best team in baseball this year in the National League—let's focus our attention there, but with that meltdown, let's pivot to Arizona and focus on our market in Phoenix. And they could do that within minutes or seconds, even, with the kinds of capabilities that we're coming up with here so that they can make better offers to that new environment and also do the decision intelligence behind it. Like, do I have enough dough to make a bigger offer in that big market? Do I have enough drivers or do I have to go and spin out and get one of the other food delivery folks—UberEats, or something like that—to jump on board with me and partner up on this kind of system?It's that responsiveness in real, real-time, right, that's always been kind of the conundrum between applications and analytics. You get an analytic insight, but it takes you an hour or a day to incorporate that into what the application is doing. This is intended to make all of that stuff go faster. And of course, when we start to talk about things in AI, right, AI is going to expect real-time responsiveness as best you can make it.Corey: I figure we have to talk about AI. That is a technology that has absolutely sprung to the absolute peak of the hype curve over the past year. OpenAI released Chat-Gippity, either late last year or early this year and suddenly every company seems to be falling all over itself to rebrand itself as an AI company, where, “We've been working on this for decades,” they say, right before they announce something that very clearly was crash-developed in six months. And every company is trying to drape themselves in the mantle of AI. And I don't want to sound like I'm a doubter here. I'm like most fans; I see an awful lot of value here. But I am curious to get your take on what do you think is real and what do you think is not in the current hype environment.Jeff: So yeah, I love that. I think there's a number of things that are, you know, are real is, it's not going away. It is going to continue to evolve and get better and better and better. One of my analyst friends came up with the notion that the exercise of generative AI, it's imprecise, so it gives you similarity things, and that's actually an improvement, in many cases, over the precision of a database. Databases, a transaction either works or it doesn't. It has failover or it doesn't, when—Corey: It's ideally deterministic when you ask it a question—Jeff: Yes.Corey: —the same question a second time, assuming it's not time-bound—Jeff: Gives you the right answer.Corey: Yeah, the sa—or at least the same answer.Jeff: The same answer. And your gen AI may not. So, that's a part of the oddity of the hype. But then it also helps me kind of feed our storyline of if you're going to try and make Gen AI closer and more accurate, you need a clean pool of data that you're dealing with, even though you've got probably—your previous design was such that you would use a relational database for transactions, a document database for your user profiles, you'd probably attach your website to a caching database because you needed speed and a lot of concurrency. Well, now you got three different databases there that you're operating.And if you're feeding data from each of those databases back to AI, one of them might be wrong or one of them might confuse the AI, yet how are you going to know? The complexity level is going to become, like, exponential. So, our premise is, because we're a multi-modal database that incorporates in-memory speed and documents and search and transactions and the like, if you start with a cleaner pool of data, you'll have less complexity that you're offering to your AI system and therefore you can steer it into becoming more accurate in its response. And then, of course, all the data that we're dealing with is on mobile, right? Data is created there for, let's say, your account profile, and then it's also consumed there because that's what people are using as their application interface of choice.So, you also want to have mobile interactivity and synchronization and local storage, kind of, capabilities built in there. So, those are kind of, you know, a couple of the principles that we're looking at of, you know, JSON is going to be a great format for it regardless of what happens; complexity is kind of the enemy of AI, so you don't want to go there; and mobility is going to be an absolute requirement. And then related to this particular announcement, large-scale aggregation is going to be a requirement to help feed the application. There's always going to be some other bigger calculation that you're going to want to do relatively in real time and feed it back to your users or the AI system that's helping them out.Corey: I think that that is a much more nuanced use case than a lot of the stuff that's grabbing customer attentions where you effectively have the Chat-Gippity story of it being an incredible parrot. Where I have run into trouble with the generative story has been people putting the thing that the robot that's magic and from the future has come up with off the cuff and just hurling that out into the universe under their own name without any human review, and that's fine sometimes sure, but it does get it hilariously wrong at some points. And the idea of sending something out under my name that has not been at least reviewed by me if not actually authored by me, is abhorrent. I mean, I review even the transactional, “Yes, you have successfully subscribed,” or, “Sorry to see you go,” email confirmations on stuff because there's an implicit, “Hugs and puppies, love Corey,” at the end of everything that goes out under my name.Jeff: Right.Corey: But I've gotten a barrage of terrible sales emails and companies that are trying to put the cart before the horse where either the, “Support rep,” quote-unquote, that I'm speaking to in the chat is an AI system or else needs immediate medical attention because there's something going on that needs assistance.Jeff: Yeah, they just don't understand.Corey: Right. And most big enterprise stories that I've heard so far that have come to light have been around the form of, “We get to fire most of our customer service staff,” an outcome that basically no one sensible wants. That is less compelling than a lot of the individualized consumer use cases. I love asking it, “Here's a blog post I wrote. Give me ten title options.” And I'll usually take one of them—one of them is usually not half bad and then I can modify it slightly.Jeff: And you'll change four words in it. Yeah.Corey: Yeah, exactly. That's a bit of a different use case.Jeff: It's been an interesting—even as we've all become familiar—or at least junior prompt engineers, right—is, your information is only going to be as good as you feed the AI system—the return is only going to be as good—so you're going to want to refine that kind of conversation. Now, we're not trying to end up replacing the content that gets produced or the writing of all kinds of pros, other than we do have a code generator that works inside of our environment called Capella iQ that talks to ChatGPT, but we try and put guardrails on that too, right, as always make sure that it's talking in terms of the context of Couchbase rather than, “Where's Taylor Swift this week,” which I don't want it to answer because I don't want to spend GPT money to answer that question for you.Corey: And it might not know the right answer, but it might very well spit out something that sounds plausible.Jeff: Exactly. But I think the kinds of applications that we're steering ourselves toward can be helped along by the Gen AI systems, but I don't expect all my customers are going to be writing automatic blog post generation kinds of applications. I think what we're ultimately trying to do is facilitate interactions in a way that we haven't dreamt of yet, right? One of them might be if I've opted into to loyalty programs, like my United account and my American Express account—Corey: That feels very targeted at my lifestyle as well, so please, continue.Jeff: Exactly, right? And so, what I really want the system to do is for Amex to reward me when I hit 1k status on United while I'm on the flight and you know, have the flight attendant come up and be like, “Hey, you did it. Either, here's a free upgrade from American Express”—that would be hyper-personalization because you booked your plane ticket with it, but they also happen to know or they cross-consumed information that I've opted into.Corey: I've seen them congratulate people for hitting a million miles flown mid-flight, but that's clearly something that they've been tracking and happens a heck of a lot less frequently. This is how you start scaling that experience.Jeff: Yes. But that happened because American Airlines was always watching because that was an American Airlines ad ages ago, right, but the same principle holds true. But I think there's going to be a lot more of these: how much information am I actually allowing to be shared amongst the, call it loyalty programs, but the data sources that I've opted into. And my God, there's hundreds of them that I've personally opted into, whether I like it or not because everybody needs my email address, kind of like what you were describing earlier.Corey: A point that I have that I think agrees largely with your point is that few things to me are more frustrating than what I'm signing up, for example, oh, I don't know, an AWS even—gee, I can't imagine there's anything like that going on this week—and I have to fill out an entire form that always asked me the same questions: how big my company is, whether we have multiple workloads on, what industry we're in. And no matter what I put into that, first, it never remembers me for the next time, which is frustrating in its own right, but two, no matter what I put in to fill that thing out, the email I get does not change as a result. At one point, I said, all right—I'm picking randomly—“I am a venture capitalist based in Sweden,” and I got nothing that is differentiated from the other normal stuff I get tied to my account because I use a special email address for those things, sometimes just to see what happens. And no, if you're going to make me jump through the hoops to give you the data, at least use it to make my experience better. It feels like I'm asking for the moon here, but I shouldn't be.Jeff: Yes. [we need 00:16:19] to make your experience better and say, you know, “Here's four companies in Malmo that you ought to be talking to. And they happen to be here at the AWS event and you can go find them because their booth is here, here, and here.” That kind of immediate responsiveness could be facilitated, and to our point, ought to be facilitated. It's exactly like that kind of thing is, use the data in real-time.I was talking to somebody else today that was discussing that most data, right, becomes stale and unvaluable, like, 50% of the data, its value goes to zero after about a day. And some of it is stale after about an hour. So, if you can end up closing that responsiveness gap that we were describing—and this is kind of what this columnar service inside of Capella is going to be like—is react in real-time with real-time calculation and real-time look-up and real-time—find out how you might apply that new piece of information right now and then give it back to the consumer or the user right now.Corey: So, Couchbase takes a few different forms. I should probably, at least for those who are not steeped in the world of exotic forms of database, I always like making these conversations more accessible to folks who are not necessarily up to speed. Personally, I tend to misuse anything as a database, if I can hold it just the wrong way.Jeff: The wrong way. I've caught that about you.Corey: Yeah, it's—everything is a database if you hold it wrong. But you folks have a few different options: you have a self-managed commercial offering; you're an open-source project, so I can go ahead and run it on my own infrastructure however I want; and you have Capella, which is Couchbase as a service. And all of those are useful and have their points, and I'm sure I'm missing at least one or two along the way. But do you find that the columnar use case is going to disproportionately benefit folks using Capella in ways that the self-hosted version would not be as useful for, or is this functionality already available in other expressions of Couchbase?Jeff: It's not already available in other expressions, although there is analytic functionality in the self-managed version of Couchbase. But it's, as I've mentioned I think earlier, it's just not as scalable or as really real-time as far as we're thinking. So, it's going to—yes, it's going to benefit the database as a service deployments of Couchbase available on your favorite three clouds, and still interoperable with environments that you might self-manage and self-host. So, there could be even use cases where our development team or your development team builds in AWS using the cloud-oriented features, but is still ultimately deploying and hosting and managing a self-managed environment. You could still do all of that. So, there's still a great interplay and interoperability amongst our different deployment options.But the fun part, I think, about this is not only is it going to help the Capella user, there's a lot of other things inside Couchbase that help address the developers' penchant for trading zero-cost for degrees of complexity that you're willing to accept because you want everything to be free and open-source. And Couchbase is my fifth open-source company in my background, so I'm well, well versed in the nuances of what open-source developers are seeking. But what makes Couchbase—you know, its origin story really cool too, though, is it's the peanut butter and chocolate marriage of memcached and the people behind that and membase and CouchDB from [Couch One 00:19:54]. So, I can't think of that many—maybe Red Hat—project and companies that formed up by merging two complementary open-source projects. So, we took the scale and—Corey: You have OpenTelemetry, I think, that did that once, but that—you see occasional mergers, but it's very far from common.Jeff: But it's very, very infrequent. But what that made the Couchbase people end up doing is make a platform that will scale, make a data design that you can auto partition anywhere, anytime, and then build independently scalable services on top of that, one for SQL++, the query language. Anyone who knows SQL will be able to write something in Couchbase immediately. And I've got this AI Automator, iQ, that makes it even easier; you just say, “Write me a SQL++ query that does this,” and it'll do that. But then we added full-text search, we added eventing so you can stream data, we added the analytics capability originally and now we're enhancing it, and use JSON as our kind of universal data format so that we can trade data with applications really easily.So, it's a cool design to start with, and then in the cloud, we're steering towards things like making your entry point and using our database as a service—Capella—really, really, really inexpensive so that you get that same robustness of functionality, as well as the easy cost of entry that today's developers want. And it's my analyst friends that keep telling me the cloud is where the markets going to go, so we're steering ourselves towards that hockey puck location.Corey: I frequently remark that the role of the DBA might not be vanishing, but it's definitely changing, especially since the last time I counted, if you hold them and use as directed, AWS has something on the order of 14 distinct managed database offerings. Some are general purpose, some are purpose-built, and if this trend keeps up, in a decade, the DBA role is going to be determining which of its 40 databases is going to be the right fit for a given workload. That seems to be the counter-approach to a general-purpose database that works across the board. Clearly you folks have opinions on this. Where do you land?Jeff: Oh, so absolutely. There's the product that is a suite of capabilities—or that are individual capabilities—and then there's ones that are, in my case, kind of multi-model and do lots of things at once. I think historically, you'll recognize—because this is—let's pick on your phone—the same holds true for, you know, your phone used to be a watch, used to be a Palm Pilot, used to be a StarTAC telephone, and your calendar application, your day planner all at the same time. Well, it's not anymore. Technology converges upon itself; it's kind of a historical truism.And the database technologies are going to end up doing that—or continue to do that, even right now. So, that notion that—it's a ten-year-old notion of use a purpose-built database for that particular workload. Maybe sometimes in extreme cases that is the appropriate thing, but in more cases than not right now, if you need transactions when you need them, that's fine, I can do that. You don't necessarily need Aurora or RDS or Postgres to do that. But when you need search and geolocation, I support that too, so you don't need Elastic. And then when you need caching and everything, you don't need ElastiCache; it's all built-in.So, that multi-model notion of operate on the same pool of data, it's a lot less complex for your developers, they can code faster and better and more cleanly, debugging is significantly easier. As I mentioned, SQL++ is our language. It's basically SQL syntax for JSON. We're a reference implementation of this language, along with—[AsteriskDB 00:23:42] is one of them, and actually, the original author of that language also wrote DynamoDB's PartiQL.So, it's a common language that you wouldn't necessarily imagine, but the ease of entry in all of this, I think, is still going to be a driving goal for people. The old people like me and you are running around worrying about, am I going to get a particular, really specific feature out of the full-text search environment, or the other one that I pick on now is, “Am I going to need a vector database, too?” And the answer to me is no, right? There's going—you know, the database vendors like ourselves—and like Mongo has announced and a whole bunch of other NoSQL vendors—we're going to support that. It's going to be just another mode, and you get better bang for your buck when you've got more modes than a single one at a time.Corey: The consensus opinion that's emerging is very much across the board that vector is a feature, not a database type.Jeff: Not a category, yeah. Me too. And yeah, we're well on board with that notion, as well. And then like I said earlier, the JSON as a vehicle to give you all of that versatility is great, right? You can have vector information inside a JSON document, you can have time series information in the document, you could have graph node locations and ID numbers in a JSON array, so you don't need index-free adjacency or some of the other cleverness that some of my former employers have done. It really is all converging upon itself and hopefully everybody starts to realize that you can clean up and simplify your architectures as you look ahead, so that you do—if you're going to build AI-powered applications—feed it clean data, right? You're going to be better off.Corey: So, this episode is being recorded in advance, thankfully, but it's going to release the first day of re:Invent. What are you folks doing at the show, for those who are either there and for some reason, listening to a podcast rather than going to getting marketed to by a variety of different pitches that all mention AI or might even be watching from home and trying to figure out what to make of it?Jeff: Right. So, of course we have a booth, and my notes don't have in front of me what our booth number is, but you'll see it on the signs in the airport. So, we'll have a presence there, we'll have an executive briefing room available, so we can schedule time with anyone who wants to come talk to us. We'll be showing not only the capabilities that we're offering here, we'll show off Capella iQ, our coding assistant, okay—so yeah, we're on the AI hype band—but we'll also be showing things like our mobile sync capability where my phone and your phone can synchronize data amongst themselves without having to actually have a live connection to the internet. So, long as we're on the same network locally within the Venetian's network, we have an app that we have people download from the Apple Store and then it's a color synchronization app or picture synchronization app.So, you tap it, and it changes on my screen and I tap it and it changes on your screen, and we'll have, I don't know, as many people who are around standing there, synchronizing, what, maybe 50 phones at a time. It's actually a pretty slick demonstration of why you might want a database that's not only in the cloud but operates around the cloud, operates mobile-ly, operates—you know, can connect and disconnect to your networks. It's a pretty neat scenario. So, we'll be showing a bunch of cool technical stuff as well as talking about the things that we're discussing right now.Corey: I will say you're putting an awful lot of faith in conductivity working at re:Invent, be it WiFi or the cellular network. I know that both of those have bitten me in various ways over the years. But I wish you the best on it. I think it's going to be an interesting show based upon everything I've heard in the run-up to it. I'm just glad it's here.Jeff: Now, this is the cool part about what I'm talking about, though. The cool part about what I'm talking about is we can set up our own wireless network in our booth, and we still—you'd have to go to the app store to get this application, but once there, I can have you switch over to my local network and play around on it and I can sync the stuff right there and have confidence that in my local network that's in my booth, the system's working. I think that's going to be ultimately our design there because oh my gosh, yes, I have a hundred stories about connectivity and someone blowing a demo because they're yanking on a cable behind the pulpit, right?Corey: I always build in a—and assuming there's no connectivity, how can I fake my demos, just because it's—I've only had to do it once, but you wind up planning in advance when you start doing a talk to a large enough or influential enough audience where you want things to go right.Jeff: There's a delightful acceptance right now of recorded videos and demonstrations that people sort of accept that way because of exactly all this. And I'm sure we'll be showing that in our booth there too.Corey: Given the non-deterministic nature of generative AI, I'm sort of surprised whenever someone hasn't mocked the demo in advance, just because yeah, gives the right answer in the rehearsal, but every once in a while, it gets completely unglued.Jeff: Yes, and we see it pretty regularly. So, the emergence of clever and good prompt engineering is going to be a big skill for people. And hopefully, you know, everybody's going to figure out how to pass it along to their peers.Corey: Excellent. We'll put links to all this in the show notes, and I look forward to seeing how well this works out for you. Best of luck at the show and thanks for speaking with me. I appreciate it.Jeff: Yeah, Corey. We appreciate the support, and I think the show is going to be very strong for us as well. And thanks for having me here.Corey: Always a pleasure.

This podcast is all about using emojis effectively in marketing emails and other digital content. Jay provides data and convincing examples of how emojis can help grab attention and boost engagement, even in professional business-to-business communications. Listeners can expect to learn best practices for utilizing emojis in subject lines, preheaders, social media, and more to stand out and connect with their audience.Key Discussion Points:- Over 95% of email recipients can view emojis, so technical display issues are not a concern.- Emojis in subject lines can increase open rates by over 20% for business emails and 25% for consumer emails versus the same subject without an emoji.- Conservatively branded companies like Goldman Sachs, ISACA, and AARP use emojis successfully in their email marketing.- For business emails, use emojis like the calendar, clock, and checkmark that act as graphical symbols rather than emotional icons.- Emojis that convey urgency like the hourglass perform best, increasing subject line open rates.- Always put the emoji as the first character of the subject line for maximum impact.- Despite increased use around holidays, under 5% of emails actually use emojis currently so they still stand out.And MASSIVE thank you to our Sponsor, Marigold!!Marigold is a relationship marketing platform designed to help you acquire new customers and turn them into superfans with their best-in-class loyalty solutions.

(Ticketed event)On September 11, 2001, at the age of 45 and at the height of her professional and personal life, Barbara K. Olson was murdered in the terrorist attacks against the United States as a passenger on the hijacked American Airlines flight that was flown into the Pentagon. The Federalist Society believes that it is most fitting to dedicate an annual lecture on limited government and the spirit of freedom to the memory of Barbara Olson. She had a deep commitment to the rule of law and understood well the relationship between respecting limits on government power and the preservation of freedom. And, significantly, Barbara Olson was an individual who never took freedom for granted in her own life, even in her final terrifying moments-her inspiring and energetic human spirit is a testament to what one can achieve in a world that places a premium on human freedom. Solicitor General Theodore B. Olson delivered the first lecture in November 2001. The lecture series continued in following years with other notable individuals.Featuring:Ms. Bari Weiss, Founder & Editor, The Free PressIntroduction: Mr. Theodore W.

Months ago, I was asked to give a lecture at the Federalist Society's National Lawyers Convention. It was a surprising invitation for a number of reasons. First, I am not a lawyer. Second: I am not a member of the Federalist Society—the prominent conservative and libertarian legal organization. (If the name rings a bell it's probably because you've heard of it in the context of the hearings of any of the conservative justices who currently sit on the court.) Third: If you look at the people who previously gave this particular lecture—Supreme Court Justices, Attorney Generals, people like Bill Barr, Don McGahn, and John Roberts—the idea that I would be on that list seemed nuts. But I accepted. Mostly because I was being asked to give the Barbara K. Olson lecture. Olson was 45 years old, a lawyer and a political commentator at the top of her game when she boarded American Airlines flight 77 on September 11, 2001. She was flying to Los Angeles that day so she could appear on Bill Maher's show Politically Incorrect, and because she had changed her flight to have a birthday dinner with her husband, Ted. Barbara was murdered along with 3,000 other Americans that day. She managed to summon the composure, courage and clarity to call her husband twice in those horrifying moments before the plane slammed into the Pentagon. Her husband, Ted Olson, has among the most impressive resumes you'll find. But most important to me and my family: he argued in support of gay marriage in front of the Supreme Court. I had many ideas for this lecture before October 7. But after the world-transforming events of that day, I felt there was only one thing to talk about: the fight for the West.

Ask Skift Is the AI Chatbot for the Travel Industry Ask Skift Your Questions Episode Notes Americans are gearing up to travel in large numbers for the Thanksgiving holiday next week. This Thanksgiving could be the busiest for the U.S. air travel for 18 years, writes Global Tourism Reporter Dawit Habtemariam. Travel organization AAA says that more than 4.7 million Americans will fly for Thanksgiving, the highest number since 2005. AAA also found flight bookings on the Tuesday before Thanksgiving appear higher than normal. That's possibly because Americans working remotely can take advantage of cheaper airfares on off-peak days. Habtemariam notes both American Airlines and United forecast this Thanksgiving will be their busiest ever. United will fly nearly 4,000 flights daily on average during the holiday period. Next, Emirates Airlines has reached a deal with Boeing to order $52 billion of aircraft, writes Middle East Reporter Josh Corder. Emirates ordered 90 jets from Boeing as part of the megadeal, which was announced on day one of the Dubai Air Show. The deal brings Emirates' total orders to 295 aircraft. In all, more than 200 new aircraft orders were placed on the first day of the airshow. Emirates is set to receive new Boeing 777 aircraft that take flights up to 18 hours, enabling the airline to establish direct connections between Dubai and cities on six continents. Finally, GetYourGuide has made waves in the tours and activities sector. And its Chief Financial Officer Nils Chrestin believes there's an opportunity for somebody to build a hundred billion company in the sector, writes Travel Experiences Reporter Selene Brophy. Brophy reports that GetYourGuide is one of the dominant online travel marketplaces for experiences. Chrestin said in an interview with Skift that GetYourGuide has seen considerable growth over the last year and a half. However, he said the company has no immediate plans to go public. Meanwhile, in addition to being the clear market leader in Europe, Chrestin said GetYourGuide has seen business boom in the U.S. and North America in general.

On today's podcast: 1) Israel and Hamas trade accusations over Gaza hospitals and President Joe Biden called on Israel to take “less intrusive action” at the al Shifa hospital — the latest sign the US wants fewer civilian casualties. Israel says Hamas uses hospitals as bases for its operations. 2) Joe Biden and his Chinese counterpart, Xi Jinping, are set to announce an agreement that would see Beijing crack down on the manufacture and export of fentanyl, according to people familiar with the matter, potentially delivering the US president a major victory. 3) House Speaker Mike Johnson is counting on Democrats to overcome misgivings and approve his proposal to avert a US government shutdown. 4) Denver Broncos beat the Buffalo Bills on Monday night football Full transcript: Good morning, I'm Nathan Hager and I'm Karen Moscow. Here are the stories we're following today. Let's get you caught up on what's happening in the Middle East. The focus is turning to hospitals in Gaza, where Israel accuses Hamas of housing command centers and weapons. President Biden says the Alshifa Hospital in Gaza City must be protected. I have not been reluctant and especially my concerns going on and is my hope and expectation that there will be less intrusive action role through hospital. President Biden's concern about civilian casualties is being answered by Israel's Economy Minister Near Barkat, do you understand that we have to wipe isis Comeaus off the map and we will do it with minimal collateral damage. This is our values. We don't need to be told that we know that ourselves Israelly Economy Minister Near Barcott spoke on Bloomberg Business Week. You can hear more of his comments on the BusinessWeek podcast. Download it wherever you get your podcasts. Well, Nathan. As the war goes on, tens of thousands of Israel supporters are gathering in Washington, d C. To show their solidarity. On Bloomberg's Amy Moore, supports from the nation's capital. Organizers are expecting up to one hundred thousand people to attend today's event on the National Mall Capitol Hill. Security will be boosted, access to the capital will be restricted. Roads are being closed. DC police have requested assistance from the National Guard and the Department and If Homeland Security has designated the march a Level one security event that's the highest rating of risk assessment. The FBI says there's no specific threat, but there is fear of loan actors attacking pro Israel demonstrators coming to DC. The event begins at one this afternoon on the National Mall in Washington. I maye more is Bloomberg Radio, Oka, Amie, thank you staying in Washington. This could be a critical twenty four hours in Congress's attempt to keep the government funded. Bloomberg Zed. Baxter has the story. House Speaker Mike Johnson says he'll bring the bill to the House floor in spite of negative reaction from the right wing of his party, who wanted spending cuts included. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer has opened the door to a settlement for now. I am pleased that Speaker Johnson seems to be moving in our direction by advancing a cr that does not include the highly partisan cuts the Democrats have warned against. And President Biden also has often saying he'll wait to see The deadline is Friday midnight, add Baxter, Bloomberg Radio. All right, and thank you well. We turned to the economy now, and we get the first of two big readings on inflation this morning. With the consumer price index for October. Economists say inflation probably ease to an annual rate of three point three percent, and we get a preview from Bloomberg's crety GUPDA. There are some varied estimates here, but I think the takeaway is simply that some of the disinflation, the progress essentially that has been happening in the US economy when it comes to inflation, is going to slow down. So it's not that it's going to increase, but it's also not going to be making as much downward progress as we expect, at least has to take out of Bloomberg Economics, and I think that's the concern here for a lot of the people who are pricing in a more dubvish Federal Reserve, which is simply that this is going to be the key data point that suggests the Federal Reserve is not done hiking at all. You heard Chairman Powell last week hint at that and kind of say, well, we're going to be as hawkish as we need to be. This is the data point that might back that up. And Bloomberg's CRETTY group disays today's inflation data is not likely to shift traders views on the fits December meeting, days after the US was threatened with the loss of its last top credit rating from Moody's the Treasury Secretary is firing back. Janet Yellen spoke in San Francisco yesterday. This is a decision that I disagree with. The American economy is fundamentally strong, and Treasury securities remain the world's pre eminent safe and liquid ASCID Secretary Yellen's in San Francisco for meetings with finance ministers from across the Pacific, Rim Nathan. The big meeting from the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation Summit comes tomorrow, when President Biden speaks with this Chinese counterpart, seson Ping. Bloomberg News has learned the two leaders will announce an agreement that could see Beijing crackdown on the manufacturer and export of fentanyl. We spoke about the opioid crisis with San Francisco Mayor London. Breed resources that are being sent out of China that come into either the US or Mexico are cut off to the fullest extent possible. That we work together in order to ensure that this deadly poison that is killing people in San Francisco in significant numbers and all over the country, that we're able to combat this to stop it. San Francisco Mayor London Breed says fentanyl has devastated her city like no other drug in her lifetime. Let's turn to some corporate news now, Karen, we have a takeover in the commodities industry. Switzerland's Glencore has agreed to buy a majority stake in Canada's tech resources coal business for more than six point nine billion dollars. The d ns a month's long saga and sets the stage for glen Core to spin off its own coal unit. Well, Nathan, a big week for retail earnings kicks off with Home Depot. We're reporting this morning, and we get a preview with the Bloomberg's Tom Busby. Home Depot forecast report a fourth straight quarterly decline at same store sales as the one to two punch of surging mortgage rates and record high home prices caused a slump in US home sales, putting it in to the home improvement boom we saw during the pandemic. Bloomberg consensus calls for comp sales to fall three point three one percent, of the decline in the US three point six seven percent. Still, net sales expected to be thirty seven point seven billion dollars, So just at earnings per share of three dollars seventy six cents. Tom busby Bloomberg Radio, All right, Tom, thanks back to commodities. The International Energy Agency says global oil markets won't be as tight as expected this quarter. IEA says sea supply tipping back into a surplus in the first half of twenty twenty four. Sorry, Nathan. Thanks. It's time now for a look at some of the o their stories making news around the world, and for that we're joined again by Bloombery sa Amy Morris Samy, Good morning, Good morning, Karen. There is growing concern about a possible government shutdown later this week, but that could also spell chaos for millions of Americans planning to travel during the holiday season. Without a deal in Congress by this Friday night, air traffic controllers and TSA workers could be forced to work without pay. And this is expected to be a record travel season. David Cymour, as chief operating officer with American Airlines, We're going to carry more customer than we ever have before, about a half a million more than last year. And House Speaker Mike Johnson has submitted a stopgap measure, but that doesn't include any money for Israel. Or Ukraine, and it doesn't have spending cuts that a lot of Republicans want. The US Supreme Court has adopted a new code of conduct, the first in the Court's history. Loyola Law School professor and former federal prosecutor Laurie Levinson says the adoption of the code itself is significant. There has been a great deal a criticism of the Supreme Court. Much of it has been focused on Justice Thomas and Justice Alito because they received gifts, they haven't made full disclosure of travel and other types of benefits, and so now we have a clear standard. But critics call the code itself toothless because it doesn't include a mechanism for enforcement. A former attorney for Donald Trump has testified against the former president and the Georgia election interference case. Jenna Ellis recounted a conversation with Dan Scavino, who served as Trump's deputy chief of staff. Video recording of that testimony was obtained by The Washington Post. He said, well, the Boss, meaning President Trump, and everyone understood the Boss, That's what we all called him. He said, the Boss is not going to leave under any circumstances. We are just going to stay in power. Trump's lead counsel in the Fulton County case says Ellis's testimony is absolutely meaningless. Ellis is one of four co defendants to plead guilty in that case out of eighteen people, and died it Alongside Donald Trump, the president of the United Auto Workers Union is headlining a hearing on Capitol Hill to talk about the resurgence of unions. UAW president Sean Faine, along with Teamster's president Sean O'Brien and Flight Attendance Union president Sarah Nelson, will provide testimony before the Senate Labor Committee on the role of unions in the lives of working families.

Denver's Will loves kick the thirty six yard field goal the Broncos upset the Bills twenty four to twenty two. Lutz had missed a forty one yarder, but the Bills got called for twelve men on the field and he got a second chance to win the game for Denver, who has suddenly won three games in a row after starting the season one and five. It's been a disappointing year for the Bills, four time defending AFC East champions, and they are right now just five and five. The Celtics are eight and two. They're five and zero at home.

This is Bloomberg Daybreak. Good morning, I'm Nathan Hager. Israel's war with Humas now appears to be centering on hospitals in Gaza, where the Palestinian militant group is accused of housing command centers and weapons. President Biden is saying the main hospital in Gaza City, Alshifa, must be protected as Israel intensifies its ground campaign. For the latest, we're joined now by Bloomberg's Oliver crook Oli. Good morning, get us up to speed on the situation in a northern Gaza, particularly around these hospitals that do now appear to be the center of attention. Yeah, so Nathan completely in the center of attention, and the ground offensive is still just raise it raging on in the northern part of Gaza, really cementing their positions around Gaza City and entering Gaza City. As we've seen, we've also heard that a great number of people have fled over the last ten days. The UN says that more than two hundred thousand people have moved south. That brings the total of almost two thirds of Gaza's a population of two point three million people that have fled their homes. The Defense Minister of Israel says that Hamas has lost control of Gaza at this stage. But really, as you say, the focus is on these hospitals and really beginning to test the limits of where the limit of self defense is, which has been really a question, I think for everybody since the beginning of this conflict, and everyone has a different answer to that. But we're starting to see that progress a little bit, particularly with the United States, which as we know, is a key ally for Israel in this battle. No, we did speak to Israel's economy minister Near Barkat on Bloomberg Radio and he seemed to echo a lot of the determination we're hearing from the Israeli government to destroy Hamas. It does make you wonder what those limits are. Lallie. I think it's a good question, and it's going to be in determined I suspect in part by what the United States says and how they say it. Right, So we're talking about a death toll. This is according to the Palestinian authorities, of more than eleven thousand people in Gaza, right, and two thirds allegedly are going our women and children. This is an absolutely huge figure of people and many of the allies of Israel. You know, you heard it from President mac Hole on Friday, who himself called for a ceasefire. And now You're starting to hear Joe Biden talk about restraint, Blincoln himself saying that too many Palestinians have been killed, Sullivan saying no firefights and hospitals, And we know that it is that sort of the US's behes that we got some of these humanitarian pauses. So really the question is where does it reach its limit? Again, So a lot of this stuff is going to be behind the closed doors, the discussions with Biden and Netanya who not taken out into the public, but you're starting to notice it in a lot of the public statements we're hearing from US officials. And as this fighting goes on and it compares to intensify, the question goes on as to how much longer this war can continue, how much more intense we could see that fighting take place, particularly around these population centers that do have very sensitive operations in Gaza City completely. And then there's the after question as well. But let's deal with the for how long question, which is you know, again, what Netanya who has said, and he said this as recently as a day or two ago, was that it will take not many years, right, So he's not ruling out the year's quantity of time. In this he says it'll take less time than the US took in defeating ISIS and al Qaeda, which again does not really narrow a very sort of slow and small window of period of time. But he's, you know, from the very beginning, giving himself a lot of flexibility in terms of how long this can go. And now the real question this we see another split potentially between the US and Israel, is what happens afterwards netnya who's suggesting that they will have indefinite control over Gaza. The security operations said, they say they don't want to rule it, but they also say they don't want to relinquish security control over Gaza. So again, these are all the sorts of points that are going to see develop And of course the big question is what is the future of Netanya? Who and whose decision will it be once there is peace about what happens with the relationship between Gaza and Palestine and Israel. And before we get even to all those questions about the future of Gaza and the future of the Israeli government, there's still this ongoing discussion about freeing hostages in Guza. What's the update there completely So the latest that we've heard from this is that Biden spoke to the Katari emir As we know, Qatar has played an absolutely fundamental role in the sort of got between Israel and of and the United States and Hamas. We hear again and again that there is potential progress on a deal, but every time we hear that, it's sort of backslides. So again, there has been more and more talked about it over the last few days, but I think you really cannot really rely on anything until it's fully secured. What we do know is that Israel has entirely ruled out a ceasefire until all the hostages have been freed, and in our last thirty seconds, the discussion we've had with Israel's economy minister, it seems like there's a determination as well to keep this fight going, even if it damages Israel's budget, even if it damages the economy. Yeah, I mean, the impact on the Israeli economy has been very sort of covid like in many respects where you know, obviously there's a war effort underway, but we've subtracted let's say, three hundred and fifty thousand people from the workforce that's about eight percent of the Israeli Workfor us is when you go down the streets, you know, many of the businesses are closed, all the universities are on pause. All of this stuff is really a standstill. But again, they see this as an existential fight, so they're gonna be willing to pay the price.
