    It's the fastest growing app in the world, filled with dance trends, cats misbehaving, and questionable financial advice. Teenagers love it; Western politicians are less convinced. Could TikTok's popularity be its downfall? This week, hosts Mike Bird, Alice Fulwood and Soumaya Keynes investigate just who is afraid of TikTok's growing influence. First, our media editor Tom Wainwright unpacks the relationship between TikTok, its parent company ByteDance, and its Chinese twin, Douyin. Then, AB Bernstein's Robin Zhu outlines just how big a threat the app poses to the likes of Facebook, Snapchat, and YouTube.

Recent findings have shown chinks in the armour of the Standard Model of particle physics, currently scientists' best understanding of the universe at its smallest scales.

    Biological sex is no longer accepted as a basic fact of life. It is forbidden to admit that female people sometimes need protection and privacy from male ones. In an analysis that is at once expert, sympathetic and urgent, Helen Joyce offers an antidote to the chaos and cancelling. Shermer and Joyce discuss: What is a woman? What is a man? • conflicting rights: trans vs. women • sex vs. gender; who you identify as vs. who you are attracted to • cross-sex identification • gender dysphoria • social contagions • gender affirming care • puberty blockers, testosterone, hormone treatment • detransitioning • top surgery, phalloplasty, vaginoplasty • preferred pronouns: compelled speech ≠ free speech • trans sports • exclusive spaces, and more… Helen Joyce is a senior staff journalist at The Economist, where she has held several positions, including Britain editor, Finance editor and International editor. Before joining The Economist in 2005 she edited Plus, an online magazine about mathematics published by the University of Cambridge. She has a PhD in mathematics from University College London.

    The Bank of England says inflation might reach 11 per cent this year. There are warnings that some people will have to choose between heating and eating. But what does it mean for the whole economy when prices just keep rising? In the 1970s inflation in the UK led to prices and wages spiralling as workers fought for wages that would keep up with prices. Those years were dominated by waves of strikes and social unrest as inflation became embedded in the economic system. The current situation is being exacerbated by Covid 19, the war in Ukraine and Brexit so is there anything that government can do to stop it? How bad could it get? And are the days of low inflation gone forever? Reporter Philip Coggan talks to: Manoj Pradhan consultant at Talking Macroeconomics Andy Haldane, Chief Executive of the RSA and former Chief Economist at the Bank of England Jagjit Chadha: Director of the National Institute of Economic and Social Research (NIESR) Helen Dickinson, Chief Executive of the British Retail Consortium Ruth Gregory, Economist at Capital Economics Kenneth Rogoff, Professor of Economics at Harvard University Producer: Claire Bowes Editor: Richard Fenton-Smith Production co-ordinators: Helena Warwick-Cross and Maria Ogundele Sound engineer: Neil Churchill

    Happy Independence Day to those Americans who might be celebrating! This episode begins with a discussion of recent activity of LiveWire; a few waitlist decisions are still being released, while new applicants are beginning to report their applications for next season (at least for Columbia's Early Decision round). Harvard Business School is scheduled to announce its 2+2 deferred enrollment decisions this upcoming week, closing out the 2021-22 decision-release season. Graham discussed the Economist ranking, and also highlighted an Adcom Q&A with NYU / Stern. your hosts also discussed GMAT numbers at top programs, highlighting a series published on Clear Admit. Graham also noted the upcoming MBA essay workshops, scheduled for July, signups are here: https://bit.ly/cambaessays Then Alex quizzed Graham with some 'real humans' lighting round questions. As usual, this episode features three ApplyWire entries: First up, we review a Taiwanese candidate residing in Canada. They've got a strong academic record, including a masters degree, and with 6 years of experience, it places them on the older end of the spectrum. Their GMAT score is solid but not outstanding for top programs. Their experience is accounting-focused, and they also are active in their communities, teaching financial literacy. Our second candidate has some quite interesting experience in the financial advising area, with three progressive moves. They have a specific goal in terms of a search fund, and their extra curriculars look positive. Alex and Graham worry about their GRE/GPA combination (320/3.19), this is the area they need to bolster, if possible. Finally Alex selects a candidate who has a low GPA (2.8) and a high GRE (330). Your hosts discuss the impact of these numbers on a candidate, and measures they may take to improve this aspect of the profile. This episode was recorded in Paris, France and Cornwall, England. It was produced in West Philadelphia, USA by Dennis Crowley. Please remember to rate and review this podcast wherever you listen!

    In this Real Estate News Brief for the week ending June 25th, 2022... what the Fed Chief is promising about inflation, what's happening with home price cuts, and top destinations for home buyers, and investors. Hi, I'm Kathy Fettke and this is Real Estate News for Investors. If you like our podcast, please subscribe and leave us a review.Economic NewsWe begin with economic news from this past week. Fed Chief Jerome Powell expressed his resolve, once again, to control inflation, but also warned that the Fed's aggressive interest rate hikes could result in some job losses. The Fed raised rates by three-quarters of a percent at the June meeting, and is planning to hike it again in July by either a half or three-quarter percent.Powell acknowledges that the Fed misjudged the risk of inflation and should have moved faster with the rate hikes. Powell said: “We did underestimate it. With the benefit of hindsight, clearly we did.” He says Fed officials anticipated a speedier end to the pandemic and supply chain issues, but that supply chain problems “remain problematic.” (1)Unemployment claims were down slightly last week, but they remain at a five-week high. Economists say it's a sign that the job market is cooling off although there's still a record number of job openings, and not enough employees to fill them. According to MarketWatch, 34 states and U.S. territories show a “decline” in jobless claims, while 19 show an increase. (2)New home sales picked up in May. The Commerce Department reports they were up almost 11% to a seasonally-adjusted annual rate of 696,000. That's a big jump from the April numbers which came in at 629,000. They are still down 5.9% for the year however. Home price growth is slowing, thanks to rising mortgage rates. The median sales price for a new home was $449,000 in May. That's down from a record high of $454.700. (3)Existing home sales were down in May, for a fourth month in a row. According to the National Association of Realtors, they were down 3.4% to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 5.41 million. There are far fewer existing homes for sale than new homes. While the supply of new homes could last more than 7 months, the supply for existing homes is just 2.6 months. The median price for an existing home has hit a new record high of $407,600. (4)Consumer confidence is dropping as inflation continues. The University of Michigan consumer sentiment index shows it fell to an all-time low of 50 in June. 50 is considered the mid-point between positive and negative on a scale of 100. Consumers are unhappy about high prices and the impact on their standard of living. (5)Mortgage RatesMortgage rates continue to move higher. Freddie Mac says the average 30-year fixed-rate mortgage rose 3 basis points to 5.81%. The 15-year was up 1 basis point to 4.92%. (6)In other news making headlines…Sellers Are Cutting PricesWe're starting to see more price cuts for listed homes. Data real estate firm Redfin says that almost one out of five home sellers lowered their price in May. That's the highest rate of price cuts since October of 2019. (7)Zillow economist Nicole Bachaud told Market Watch that it's a sign of the housing market rebalancing. She says: “The share of listings with a price cut is creeping up, possibly a sign that sellers cannot be quite as ambitious in their pricing strategy as they coil have in recent months.” She says homes are selling as fast as they ever have, and the typical homes is selling in seven days for more than the listing price.Homebuyers Love FloridaRedfin also did a little research on current trends for homebuyer destinations. It says that buyers are chasing after affordability, and that found that two Florida cities topped the destination list in April and May. Miami was number one as it has been all year, and Tampa pushed Phoenix out of the way for second place. (8)Tampa has become very popular since the start of the pandemic. Prices are up 28% year-over-year, but Tampa remains relatively affordable. A typical Tampa home sells for around $370,000. The national median is $424,000.Redfin says that Tampa is attracting a lot of newcomers from New York and the Northeast. Redfin says it's also attracting a lot of investors, which we, at RealWealth, can attest to. It's a strong market for rental properties, including single-family homes.You can find out more about buying single-family rentals by going to our website at newsforinvestors.com.

    As gridlock plagues the Capitol, across First Street the Supreme Court is transforming America. In this term alone, it has overturned the right to an abortion, loosened gun laws, eroded the separation of church and state and limited the federal government's ability to combat climate change.

    THE THESIS: Just as Joe Biden cannot understand what the scheming and evil people are doing to use under cover of Covid, he doesn't get it on energy or food.  THE SCRIPTURE & SCRIPTURAL RESOURCES:  Matthew 9:35 Jesus went through all the towns and villages, teaching in their synagogues, proclaiming the good news of the kingdom and healing every disease and sickness. What Did Jesus Actually Have to Say about Money? THE NEWS & COMMENT: [AUDIO] - President Macron attempts to explain the reality of the petroleum markets to the Figurehead [AUDIO] - Oil reached 'peak' prices, food still on the rise: Billionaire supermarket owner  . . . United Refining Chairman and CEO John Cats-imat-idis, who is also the billionaire owner and CEO of New York City supermarket chain Gristedes, weighs in on whether inflation could start to come down soon. Northern Ireland will need to lose more than 1 million sheep and cattle to meet its new legally binding climate emissions targets, according to an industry-commissioned analysis seen by the Guardian. In Indiana, 9,200 acres of farmland to be used for a massive solar farm In May 2022, a number of experts started speaking out about the inevitability of coming food shortages. The United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres warned of "the specter of a global food shortage in coming months" unless international action is taken,6 and The Economist featured "The Coming Food Catastrophe" on its cover.7 During the 2022 World Economic Forum (WEF) meeting in Davos, Kristalina Georgieva, managing director of the International Monetary Fund, told attendees that "the anxiety about access to food at a reasonable price globally is hitting the roof,"8 and President Biden, in March 2022, told reporters that food shortages are "going to be real."9 A May 30, 2022, Reuters report10 showed the global food price index had risen 58.5% above the 2014-2016 average as of April 2022, due to a convergence of "post-pandemic global demand, extreme weather, tightening food stocks, high energy prices, supply chain bottlenecks ... export restrictions and taxes" combined with Russia's invasion of Ukraine. Together, Russia and Ukraine account for as much as 12% of all globally traded calories,11 making the timing of the conflict a particularly perilous one for the world. Not surprisingly, countries that are heavily reliant on imports have seen the steepest food price increases. In early April 2022, Rockefeller Foundation president Rajiv Shah and Sara Menker, founder of Gro Intelligence, published an op-ed12 in The New York Times blaming "Putin's war" for the looming food crisis but, clearly, we were already on the path toward global famine long before Putin entered Ukraine. Weather, for example — whether natural or manufactured — plays an important role. As noted by Shah and Menker, "historic drought" plagues many parts of the world, including the U.S. Midwest, Brazil, Argentina, North Africa, the Middle East13 and India.14 Meanwhile, China's agricultural lands are drowning under the "heaviest rains in 60 years."15 See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

    Twenty-five years ago, Britain returned Hong Kong to China. The handover was based on a promise the city would retain its high degree of autonomy. That pledge now lies in tatters. Host Anne McElvoy asks Chris Patten, the last colonial governor, why Hong Kong's nascent democracy was thwarted. Sue-Lin Wong, The Economist's China correspondent, tells Anne how China tightened its grip on Hong Kong. And, exiled activist Nathan Law ponders the future of the pro-democracy movement.

    In much of the northern hemisphere, it is summer. But in the world of crypto, winter has arrived. The price of bitcoin, which has been hovering around $20,000, is 70% below its peak of last year. In fact, the entire market capitalisation of the cryptoverse has shrunk by more than two-thirds since November 2021. Is this, as the crypto bulls say, a much needed correction? Or is this the beginning of a domino effect that could see the entire decentralised finance system unravel?This week, hosts Alice Fulwood, Mike Bird and Soumaya Keynes first look at why this crash is different from the many that have come before in the short life-span of cryptocurrencies. Then, they ask what weaknesses have been exposed in this downturn.
