The city is located in present-day north central Mongolia, around 1000km or 700 miles northwest of Beijing and about 500km or 300 miles south of Irkutsk, Russia. Its current population is around 1.5 million, meaning it contains around 50% of Mongolia's residents, and is comparable in population to San Diego or Munich.

Coronavirus cases have risen sharply in Germany in recent weeks. Several of the worst-hit states, including Saxony and Bavaria have introduced new restrictions on unvaccinated people at indoor public venues. We get a sense of the changing picture in Munich from Rachel Preece, a writer and editor who has lived there for more than a decade. And we hear about the impact on business from Bernd Ohlmann, who is the head of Munich's association of retailers. Also in the programme, campaign group the Tax Justice Network estimates that countries are losing $483bn in tax a year because of what they term "global tax abuse". Rachel Etter-Phoya is senior researcher for the Network, and brings us the details. Plus, a sinister cybersecurity threat has emerged in the form of stalkerware - monitoring apps used for cyberstalking through the victim's smartphone or computer. The BBC's Ivana Davidovic reports on what the tech companies doing about it and how users can avoid becoming victims. Today's edition is presented by Rob Young, and produced by Clare Williamson and Elizabeth Hotson. (Picture: People wait outside a vaccination centre in Munich. Picture credit: Getty Images.)

Today's show rundown: The left says that America is back so much, that Americans are buying too much. But if you look at the sales figures, we have the same amount of consuming going on at this time last year. But the hallmarks of socialism is - a lack of goods and services, hyperinflation, and the loss of personal freedoms...sound anything like what we have going on here? All CNN can talk about is Trump, and how ineffective he was as a President, and STILL talking about the Insurrection. They aren't covering anything on what the Biden Administration I doing. Chuck talks a bit about how the Biden / Obama administration launched a non-military coup on President Trump. A man who came along, and was concerned about the American people. So what is it that the Left is all about, that they give each other awards every day...what do they actually are about. These people actually despise the American People. Kamala Harris is at a 20 percent approval rating / all time recorded record for being disliked. Her and Biden's approval ratings, in under a year are under 30 Percent. Why is this not being talked about? All we hear is "they aren't Trump". 9 out of 10 Scientists...funded by the government...agree with the government on climate change. Imagine that...people who benefit from agreeing with the government...agree with the government. We meet the show guest Bonner Cohen, who says we accomplished nothing during this Glasgow Climate Change Conference (COP26). The global elites have determined we are experience a "Climate Crisis" that is caused by us. Because it is said that man made emissions, are heat trapping, we are causing the Earth to warm, and that it will be dangerous for life, that we have a human induced climate crisis. The people setting this all up who stand to benefit from all these climate change policies strongly...are all for it. BIO – Bonner R.

He also serves as a senior policy adviser with the Heartland Institute, senior policy analyst with the Committee for a Constructive Tomorrow, and as adjunct scholar at the Competitive Enterprise Institute.

We mark the death on November 8, 1833 – 188 years ago today – of the Austrian pianist, composer, and Benedictine monk, Maximilian Stadler. Born on August 4, 1748, in the Austrian city of Melk, Abbé Stadler died in his adopted home city of Vienna. Witnesses to History We contemplate “witnesses to history,” who I'm going to categorize as “chroniclers” and “bystanders”. “Chroniclers” would be those individuals who, advertently or inadvertently, were witness to historical events which they then reported, firsthand.  For example, John “Jack” Silas Reed (1887-1920). Reed was an American journalist, poet, and communist activist. A prominent World War One war correspondent, Reed was in Petrograd (St. Petersburg) immediately before during and after the Russian Revolution, which he witnessed as a member of the revolutionary inner circle. His book, Ten Days That Shook the World (published in 1919) remains, despite Reed's parochial political leanings, a riveting, firsthand account of the October Revolution. Then there's the American journalist and war correspondent William Shirer (1904-1993). As the European bureau chief for CBS, Shirer was headquartered in Vienna and was a firsthand witness to the “Anschluss”, the Nazi “annexation” of Austria on March 11, 1938.

Catherine is renowned for socially and environmentally responsible work that attests to temporality and continuing change, referring those who interact with these landscapes to relationships with history, culture and the elements. Mosbach's many projects include the Solutre archaeological park in Saone-et-Loire, Walk Sluice of Saint-Denis, the Botanical Garden of Bordeaux, the other side in Quebec City, Shan Shui at the International Horticultural Exposition in Xian, the Place de la Republic in Paris, Walking Mediterranean Fort Saint Jean in Marseille. Mosbach's work reveals latencies and hidden layers in the landscape, making the amorphous, ambiguous or slow-moving apparent in real time. The firm's projects are often close to a decade in the making, with precise relationships to site conditions, rhythms of activity and occupation and seasonal variation. Mosbach is the recipient of the equerre d'argent award with Kazuyo Sejima and Ryue Nishizawa for the Louvre Lens Museum Park in 2013, and Phase Shift Park (Gateway park) in Taichung was honoured in 2014 in the Iconic Concept Award category by the German Design Council, Munich.

The most successful model across all drive types was the VW ID.4 with 913 registrations. - The fact that October 2021 is significantly lower than September with its 13,946 new electric car registrations is probably mainly due to Tesla's delivery practices. - The 8,116 electric cars were joined by 2,226 plug-in hybrids in October, with a market share of 19.2 per cent (down 6.2 per cent from October 2020). In total, 89.3 per cent of all new passenger cars in Norway had an external charging connection in October – in August this figure was 87.7 per cent, in September with the Tesla boost mentioned even 91.2 per cent.

Of course, it depends on numerous factors -- and who you ask -- but Porsche engineers believe they've figured it out. - "At the moment, we think 100-kilowatt-hours is the right battery size," said Benjamin Passenberg, manager of high-voltage system concepts at Porsche, while speaking with press during a media event last month. That sounds like an oddly convenient number, but numerous reasons back up this claim. - According to Porsche, more than 95% of motorists travel less than 124 miles per day, so why pay for a gigantic battery pack you don't really need and then have to drag it around everywhere you drive? It doesn't make a lot of sense. - Reinforcing the claim that 100-kWh is just about the right size, in simulated testing, a Porsche Taycan fitted with an 85.1-kWh battery pack lapped the Nürburgring 0.7 second faster than a model fitted with a smaller -- and 240 pound lighter -- 70-kWh battery. Even though the svelter car accelerated a tiny bit quicker, the larger battery provided more sustained performance, which resulted in the slightly faster lap time. BMW'S ELECTRIC VEHICLE SALES SURGE, BUT CHIP SHORTAGE POSES CHALLENGE - The BMW Group's sales of fully electric vehicles grew by 121.4% in the first nine months of 2021, hitting 59,688 units, with the German carmaker stating Wednesday that electric mobility was “becoming an increasingly vital growth driver and success factor” for the company. - In total, the Munich-headquartered firm sold 231,575 all-electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles between January and September, a jump of 98.9%. By comparison, in the third quarter of 2021 alone, Elon Musk's Tesla says it delivered 241,300 vehicles.

The Volkswagen ID.4 and Mustang Mach-E followed with 6 percent each, while the Nissan Leaf, Bolt EUV, and Bolt EV all accounted for 2 percent each. - Low sales volumes have typically been an area of concern given GM's EV-focused strategy, which calls for launching 30 electric vehicles by the year 2025. To that end, Chevy Bolt family sales during Q3 2021 isn't exactly reassuring, though the numbers aren't too far off from the Volkswagen ID.4 and Ford Mustang Mach-E. - low Chevy Bolt family sales volume is the result of the ongoing stop sale and recall over battery pack fires. As a result, sales of the Bolt EV and EUV – which both ride on the same GM BEV2 platform and use the same 65 kWh battery pack – have been suspended until the situation is fully resolved, which has not taken place for the third quarter of 2021.

This episode is loaded with actionable insights for you to get your finances in order and start building real wealth. --- Transcript   Before we jump into the episode, here's a quick disclaimer about our content.

I'm Michael Albaum. And today with me, I have Diania Merriam, who's going to be talking to us today about the economy conference that she is the founder of as well as some financial independence tips that she has learned along her life's journey. So without further ado, let's get into it.   Diana, thank you so much for taking the time to come talk personal finance with me today. I really appreciate it.   Thanks for having me.   Michael: No, my pleasure. So you are the founder of a really cool conference called economy.   Diania: Yeah.   Michael: Tell us a little bit about what that is. Because I know it's coming up here in like 30 days, right?   Diania: Yes, we are exactly a month away at the time of this recording. But essentially, economy, the easiest way to describe it is it's like the TED talks of the fire movement. And you guys can't see me. But I'm doing air quotes over here, because we're not associated with TED talks, which is like the easiest way to explain what it is. So we have amazing mainstage speakers that talk about financial independence from a lot of different angles, whether it be really tactical information, or just more inspiring stories. And then we also do a number of breakout sessions to kind of connect you with like minded people. Because as you know, money is such a taboo topic, right? And we don't often get the opportunity to surround ourselves with people that are comfortable talking about this stuff.   So one of the things I like to say about pursuing financial independence is like what's the point of being FI and retiring early if you have no one to hang out with? Right, here's your opportunity to meet your people to meet your tribe.   Michael: Your playmates yeah.   Diania: Exactly. So we've got all these breakout sessions, we do an after party, we do a lot of social activities on the last day of the event. So it's really just an amazing weekend, someone last year describes it as a party about money, which is exactly the vibe I was going for.   It's really, the point of it is inspiration and community around a topic that is so you know, influential for us all?   Michael: Oh, that's awesome. And is I know, this year, it's out in Cincinnati. Is it always in Cincinnati? Or does the location move every year?   Diania: Yes. So we're actually in our second year, because I had the brilliant idea of launching an event based business in the middle of a pandemic.   Actually, our first event was March 7 of 2020. It was one week before everything shut down due to COVID. But I had been planning the event for 20 months. This was like something I could have never anticipated that I would have to navigate. So yeah, we got really lucky on our first event. And this is actually going to be our second and yes, it's at the same venue, which is the University of Cincinnati.   Michael: Awesome, awesome, awesome. So I've got kind of a question for you. And I'm curious, why did you think you were qualified to host and found a conference talking about money? What's your story? Like?   Diania: Yeah, like who the hell do I think I am? I mean, as far as qualifications? Um, that's a great question. I think that I was just someone with a really ambitious idea. That's probably crazy. Most people told me I was crazy. When I when I first came up with this idea, but the reason why I wanted to do this is because figuring out my financial situation completely changed my life. So my background is that, you know, my 20s, I was very focused on my career, living in New York City. I got to my late 20s, about 28. I decided I should probably look at my money situation, like what's going on here, right. And I ran a credit report on myself and realize that I was 30 grand in debt for like no good reason. It was simply living outside my means.   And half of that debt was student loan debt, which doesn't sound too bad until you consider that I got a full academic scholarship to college. Like, the fact that I had any student loan debt is just ridiculous. It still blows my mind. But when you're at that age, and you're completely financially illiterate, you know, someone offers you loans, and you don't really…   Michael: Oh look free money!   Diania: I mean, you Yeah, you just, it's just what you do, right? No one like advised me that maybe that wasn't a great idea. So I found myself in this situation where I'm 30 grand in debt in my late 20s. My 30th birthday is looming. I think it's one of those really reflective birthdays for like, what am I doing with my life?   Michael: Yep, right.   So I came across this article that was sent to me by a friend from Mister Money Mustache. I'm sure you know that blog, right?   Michael: Know him very well, yeah.   Diania: Yes, one of the most popular probably the most popular blogger in the fire movement, which I keep throwing around this word fire. I want to make sure everyone's on the same page stands for financial independence retire early. Right, To me it's a it's a lifestyle movement with a goal of financial freedom. But a lot of people look at it as like a bunch of frugal weirdos and we're all in a cult.   Diania: It's not   Michael: Chanting about money.   Diania: Yeah, exactly. So I discovered Mister Money Mustache. And I like to say that I think the article was something about like, viewing your debt as an emergency. And I like to describe finding that blog as a refreshing punch in the face, because I had never heard anyone talk about money the way that he did. And I just devoured that blog with a spoon. I read like every single article, I got a little obsessive over it.   But it really inspired this very deep mindset shift within me. And I did a complete 180 I got out of that 30 grand of debt and 11 months. And from there, I started saving about 60% of my income. And it completely changed my life. It opened up so many options. That just didn't seem possible for me like that, it allowed me to dream bigger, you know. So one of the things that motivated me to even want to get out of debt is I had this goal to go walk the Camino de Santiago, which is a 500 mile trek across Spain. It just seemed like this ridiculous life adventure that felt so outside my comfort zone. But it's what I wanted to do for my 30th birthday.   So getting out that was kind of a motivator for me to get out of debt. And then when I got back from that trip, so that was in 2017.   Michael: Wait, timeout. So you did it?   Diania: I did it. Yes.   Michael: So when I got back, you just glossed over it! Oh, that's incredible.   Diania: Yeah, it took me 38 days, and it was a wild adventure. absolutely wild. Yeah, I walked with anywhere between 10 to 20 miles a day, with like, 20 pounds on my back, I met incredible people. That's actually I have an arrow tattoo on my wrist,   Michael: Okay.   Diania: And it's because the whole way is marked by arrows. They're like spray painted on trees, or like, carved into these stones. And so every time I would see an arrow, it'd be like a very comforting symbol that I like, wasn't lost.   Michael: Still on the right path.   Diania: So yeah, yeah. So um, when I got to Santiago, which for many people is the finish line, I ended up getting this tattoo. But yeah, that's something that I would have never dreamed would be possible, given my financial situation in my late 20s. And, you know, a lot of the people that I met on the trail were in their 60s or they were at traditional retirement age, they had to like wait to be able to do that. So it just getting my money in order opened up this incredible option.   And I just feel like my getting my finances in order almost allowed me to ask bigger questions like, What do I want to do with my time? What do I want to create? What kind of people do I want to surround myself with? And so getting out of debt was a big milestone in that regard. Walking the Camino was a big milestone. I negotiated a remote working arrangement with my employer. So I moved from New York City to Cincinnati, which people are like, what, why? Why would you do that?   But I will tell you that Cincinnati has everything that you would want out of a big city with like none of the downsides. And the cost of living, you just can't beat it. I mean, I really am marketing Cincinnati as the number one city to pursue financial independence. And a couple things we're doing actually at the economy conference in that regard, like our coffee vendor as a local vendor.   We're doing an urban hike on Sunday morning of the event, a three hour urban hike to show off how amazing Cincinnati is. And then with Roofstock, we are doing a chartered real estate bus tour. It's a two hour tour where we're going to drive you around the amazing neighborhoods in Cincinnati that are really good investments. And we have an expert that owns 42 doors here. He's flipped three dozen houses, and he's going to do some case studies on his best properties.   So if you are interested in low cost of living in an amazing city, you've got to come out to Cincinnati and I feel like I have the authority to say that because I came from New York City that's usually whatever where everyone wants to go.   Michael: Yes.   Diania: Now come to Cincinnati.   Michael: I love it. And I'm gonna second that call to action to get out to Cincinnati. I do a lot of investing out in Cincinnati and across the river in Covington, Kentucky, and I went out to visit a property and I happen to be there actually around this time a little bit later in October and found myself and I think the second largest Beer Fest or Oktoberfest, rather outside of Munich, Germany, and just had an absolute bombing, the food scene. I think they've got the most micro breweries like per capita of maybe any city. Tons of coffee places, Coffee Roasters popping up, it is just a very, very cool city for no one who, for people who haven't been before, so totally love it. Love it. Love it.   Diania: Yeah. Yeah. So, you know, being out here getting back from the Camino, you know, I adopted dog, I buy a house, I find myself a Midwestern gentleman, you know, life is good. Yeah. But I was still kind of asking myself these big questions like, What do I want to do with my time. And so at this point, I'm saving 60% of my income, I'm still, you know, fully employed with the same company that I had worked for nine years in New York City. And I had this idea that you know, what I was asking myself, what would I want to do with my time if I no longer had to work for money?   And I decided I wanted to create this party about money. And a big reason for that is because I had been going to different events, and exposing myself to people that were very, like, growth oriented, their life seems so expansive, and it really helped me broaden my perspective on what's possible in my own life. So for example, one of my favorite events is called World Domination Summit. I know that sounds insane, like who produces that, pinky in the brain?   Michael: Pinky and the brain, yeah, exactly.   Diania: But this event, I mean, as someone as frugal as me, you know, I got out of 30 grand of debt and 11 months, I really brought down my spending in order to do that this event is $700 A ticket. And I will tell you, it is worth every single penny. Because the people that you meet there are just incredible, and they're doing such amazing things. And every time I would leave, I would feel like my life is so full of possibility. I also had gone to events like Camp FI, or Camp Mustache, sense positive. These are kind of rooted in the financial independence community. And it's a way for people to spend a weekend together with like minded people.   Now, I saw an opportunity to create kind of a large scale event. So like Camp FI, Camp Mustache, usually around 60 people for like a weekend at a retreat center. Right? I wanted to do something more like World Domination Summit that's a little bit more grand. It's more of a production. You know, it's more of a show. It has a really strong entertainment element to it. And so I modeled my event really after World Domination Summit, but I brought that price tag way down. I'm actually doing it for $200 A ticket, but it is definitely worth $700 A ticket. I'm not charging enough.   But yeah, it's funny, because this event was supposed to be my early retirement project when I reached FI at 40 years old, but I just got so excited about it. I couldn't wait. I had to do it now. And I'm really glad that I did. Because it's been quite the adventure.   Michael: Oh my god, what a cool story. And next time someone asks, don't gloss over the fact that you hiked 500 miles. That's an amazing feat, among many others. You just mentioned that is so cool. That is so cool.   So I,   Diania: Well thanks so much.   Michael: No, of course, of course, what I'd love to do is kind of get into the meat and potatoes, if you will, of financial independence and just kind of getting your finances or so I think your story where you found yourself in your late 20s is so common for so many people, they don't realize what student loans are, how the payback works, how debt works, how finances work. So what did you do? Other than change your mindset, like brass tacks, what did you do on a daily, weekly, monthly basis? And you were able to pay off 30,000 in debt in 11 months? Because that's that's something no small feat.   Diania: Yeah, I would say big lifestyle changes, right. So when I looked at where I was spending money, then I would say the first thing I did was increase my awareness around my situation, honestly, because a lot of us are just swiping the credit card, we're not paying attention of where our money is going. So I started tracking every single dollar I spent. And I saw that I was spending a ton of money eating out, you know, going out for happy hour. I mean, let's be honest, I had my 20s in New York City, you know, like I was a party animal.   And I think what I obviously like I was very social creature, I mean that's kind of another reason why I'm into these in person events. I'm a very social person, very extroverted. So I was spending so much money going out. And so what I ended up doing, and I think this is really important, when you think about decreasing your expenses, a lot of people look at that as deprivation, they look they think of it as I can't go out anymore. And I saw it as an opportunity to be resourceful and creative, and really to get to the root of what are my values and how do I align my spending with my values in a more efficient way.   So the value for me was spending time with other people, I don't need to remove that from my life, let me just do that a little bit more efficiently. So I started like hosting these elaborate dinner parties in my apartment, where I would like makeup games, I made my apartment more fun than a bar, everybody else would bring the booze, I would cook the food. And you know, I'd always have themes like, I just, I think back on that time, and it was so wild. Like I would tell people, you know, bring a photo from your awkward phase. And then we'd like all pass around these photos around and like make fun of each other or like   Michael: That's so good   Diania: The night was like, was like tonight's the evening of compliments. And it was like a game of who can give the most compliments to other people at the table. And we would like, we would like keep score. I mean, it was just silly, but it scratched my itch for human connection in a really resourceful way. Another thing I did was, you know, rather than buying clothing, I would host these clothing exchanges, all of my more fashionable friends would clean out their closets, I would do like a clothing swap, while sipping mimosas and listening to music in my apartment on a Sunday afternoon, you know, I started to see my, my frugal behaviors is actually far superior than the convenience of swiping a card because I not only got my needs met, but I also got to be creative in the process.   And so I kind of feel like if you're reducing your expenses, and it feels like deprivation, I think that you're not being creative enough about it, I think it can be a really fun thing. And I also think the other piece of it is really understanding that that hedonic treadmill, we're all on when it comes to consumerism, right? We all want, you know, the new shoes and the fancy car and the nice stuff. And I think that I had to really grow a new sense of gratitude for what I have. Now.   If you develop a deep appreciation for what you have now, you're almost combating that desire for more. Right, I think you're combating your consumerist conditioning. And I started to see things that I used to think were a burden, I would just laugh them off as a first world problem. So for example, we all know, the big three, right? And personal finance, when you're reducing your expenses, you want to reduce your housing, transportation and food, those are the things that people spend the most money on. And so I was locked into a lease, you know, or, you know, with my apartment, so I couldn't really do anything about that transportation. I didn't have a car, I was using public transportation. And I had, like, commuter benefits through my job. So I feel like I was optimized there.   But when it came to food, I could I could really have a huge effect there. So I started cooking every meal that I ate. I was bringing lunch every single day making, you know, gourmet breakfast, of like omelets with goat cheese and smoked salmon. I mean, I was eating very well, I'm not talking rice and beans. But for most people, when I would tell them I'm cooking, every meal I am eating, they look at that as such a burden.   And it's like, actually, no, I should be celebrating the fact that I have access to a grocery store that I can get any ingredient I want at any time at that grocery store, right? Like, we are so fortunate and I think if we can shift our mindset and be grateful for how fortunate we are, we're combating that desire for that consumerist convenience. Another thing that really struck me when I was reading Mister Money Mustache is he says that luxury is a weakness. And that really helped me shift my mindset because I realized if I can be happy on very minimal amount of money, that's like a superpower. Right? And I wanted to learn that skill before something externally happened.   So I think self imposed restriction, it has the opportunity to lead to a lot of personal development, when it's externally imposed by a job loss, or like a health scare. I didn't want to try to learn it under those conditions, I think it would have been a lot less fun, you know. And so I think it was really empowering for me to just learn to live on less and enjoy it. I mean, I spent a lot more time reading books from the library and working out and journaling. And I stopped wearing makeup for a long time and got comfortable with my with what my face looks like. I mean, you know, these are all things that you can look at it as deprivation or you can see it as incredible opportunity to grow.   Michael: That's incredible. Total side note. Do you know Wim Hof?   Diania: Yeah.   Michael: Are you a big Wim Hof fan?   Diania: Oh, What a weirdo. Yeah, that guy. My boyfriend does his breathing every morning. It's really obnoxious.   Michael: Oh, that's awesome.   Diania: Yeah, here I'm like huffing and puffing in the living room this morning. So my wife is a huge fan. And I've come on board to the cold plunge thing I totally buy into, but he talks about forcing yourself to be uncomfortable and putting yourself in uncomfortable situations. So when life throws something that you, you can handle it. And that totally sounded very similar to what you're talking about of, hey, do it for yourself. So that way, when life throws you a curveball, you're more than ready.   Diania: Absolutely.   Michael: No, I love that. I love that. But you also did. I mean, you also uprooted your life and move that in New York and to Cincinnati. So yeah, I mean, you said that you were locked into this lease, but it doesn't sound like you renewed that lease, or you stayed in New York much longer after having this revelation.   Diania: Yeah. And, you know, when I was in New York, for about 10 years, I had to move almost every year. I think the longest I stayed in a place was like a year and a half, maybe two years. But it's, you know, you're constantly changing roommates, because no one can afford to live alone. And then the rents will go up like $100 every year. So you're really forced, I was forced even deeper and deeper into the bowels of Brooklyn, you know, and then I ended up, I ended up getting this. The last place I lived. I did live there for two years is the first time I've ever lived alone as an adult.   It was in Sunset Park and I was paying $1,800 a month for this like cockroach infested apartment. That was just Yeah. So when I was making the decision to go walk the Camino and 2017 My I did the Camino in the fall, my lease was up in May of that year. So my landlord wasn't going to let me sublet for those two months. So I knew I was going to have to leave anyway, and find a different situation. And so it was like if I'm gonna move again. And I'm in this situation where I've got no man, no kids, no debt. Let me just go, like, put my big girl pants on and move to the Midwest and try something different, you know?   Michael: Yeah totally.   Diania: Just, I was always intimidated by the idea of like uprooting my life and starting over in a new city. But I had the benefit of I had a really close friend in Cincinnati, who I visited a few times. And so I got the sense of the area. And she was my only connection to Cincinnati isn't like I grew up here. I grew up in New Jersey. I had no other friends or family or anything besides her. And that was really helpful, though, because she was another very social person. So she just dumped me into her friend circle. Oh, and that's kind of how I got going here. Yeah, yeah.   Michael: That's great. That's great. And so now that you are kind of on the other side of the wall, or standing on top of the wall or the mountain, what advice do you have for people? I mean, in addition to the wealth of knowledge you've already shared, what do you what do you see looking forward? And what can you share with people?   Diania: Yeah, um, I would say when you're first starting out, like I'm helping a friend right now who's really deep in debt, who is just starting from scratch, trying to clean up her finances. And when I sit with her in our meetings, it's like, she's just so overcome with shame, and fear. And she's like sweating, as we're talking about this stuff. And I encourage her as well as anyone else in that situation, let your curiosity be bigger than your fear.   Because when it comes to money, it really is all figureoutable. But you have to have the mindset that it's fixable in order for you to be able to kind of face the music and like look at the reality of your situation, so that you can come up with a plan to dig out of it. It's totally possible. But it really all starts with your belief system. So there's a lot of people where I'll tell my story, and they'll say, Well, you could do that. But here are all the reasons why I can't do that.   Michael: Why I can't, right. Yeah.   Diania: And and I think if that's your initial reaction, that's your first thing that you got to tackle. I think you've got to change your belief system to recognize that it is possible and start to get curious about how it could be possible versus just immediately dismissing it. I think that's good advice for when you're first starting out. I think as you move through your financial journey, and you start hitting milestones, like for me, I hit debt freedom. Amazing. Then I had a fully funded emergency fund. Awesome. Then I started fully funding my retirement vehicles to the point where I reached Coast FI, which for those who aren't familiar Coast FI means that I have invested enough in my retirement vehicles that in 30 years because I'm 34 right now, it will grow to what I need for traditional retirement. So in essence, I don't really have to save for traditional retirement anymore. If I didn't care about early retirement and I can kind of take my foot off the gas a little bit because I've hit those certain milestones.   And then, you know, saving to a place where I got my first side hustle so I started hosting this podcast called optimal finance daily, which is a daily show, 10 minutes or less, I'm reading you articles about personal finance. So I like to say that all these amazing personal finance bloggers wrote these great songs, and I get to perform the covers, you know.   Michael: That's great.   Diania: It's, it's a show that's been around for five years, and they were looking for a new host, and I just went for it. And so this is kind of my first, you know, little side hustle income.   So, I would say though, as I've progressed through these milestones, my trajectory and goals for the future have definitely shifted. So I would say, like, be flexible about financial goals, because when I first started this, I thought, What I wanted was to just reach financial independence and retire early. And then as I've gone along through the years, and it's only been, what, six years that I've been on this journey, my desires and goals kind of keep shifting and changing, because the, it's almost like, the universe presents you with opportunities along the way.   And so if you're so laser focused on just reaching financial independence, you may miss out on these opportunities to learn about yourself and learn about what do you want to do with your time? What do you want to create in the world? And who do you want to spend that time with those three questions to me, has become kind of the focus on my path to FI. It's not like I gave up on my goal. But I just I've kind of, I'm not so laser focused on the money piece of it. Because I've realized that money is only as valuable as your clarity on how you're going to use it, and your comfort level with how much is enough.   So if you don't have clarity and comfort around your money, yeah, if you don't have those two pieces, you could be a multimillionaire and still be miserable. Right? I don't want to reach that point. I want to use my financial bandwidth to kind of explore those two things along the way. I also love this quote from Ayn Rand who wrote like The Fountainhead, and she says, money is only a tool, it will take you wherever you want to go. But it won't replace you as the driver.   And I just think for so many of us, we look at money as the goal versus as the tool to use to reach our goals. And that's something that I had to learn in in for myself, because I had always just kind of had money as the goal once I discovered the fire movement.   Michael: Yep. Yeah, no, I'm right there with you. And I always said, I'll figure it out when I get there. But then I realized, oh, there's too many other things to figure out along the way, that having money be the tool is a much better way to go.   Diania: Absolutely. If you're miserable on your path to FI you're likely going to be miserable when you reach FI   Michael: Yeah. Yeah, I think that's so well said. So well said. And so then I'm curious if you can share with everybody, what is it? What is your investment kind of portfolio look like? Is it stocks? Is it bonds is a real estate? How do you see yourself hitting that hitting the hitting FI?   Diania: Yeah, so I went for the Simple Path to Wealth model. And I would say that most of my money is in the tax advantaged accounts of what my 401k So I actually quit my job in January of this year. That's crazy. That was 10 months ago.   Michael: Congratulations that's awesome.   Diania: Yeah. So okay, so little sidebar, that's kind of a really good representation of what I mean about being flexible, because I had just thought that I was going to stay with my employer until I reached financial independence. But things changed, right, I ended up getting this new boss, the dynamic of the company, after nine years of being employed, there changed considerably. And so, you know, the, I kind of felt like the party was over, and the company didn't value me anymore.   And so I could have just put my head down and pushed through it because I have this goal of financial independence. But instead, I decided to kind of take a risk and a bet on myself to see like, Okay, I've got this, but I like to call FU money. So that that's defined as a year to have your expenses liquid. So I had a year in cash, and I had a year in after tax brokerage, which I really don't want to touch the after tax brokerage, but it's almost like my backup plan, my additional layer of a safety net. But that's something that it was almost like the universe presented me an obstacle and an opportunity at the same time. And so that could potentially slow my path down to FI.   Or something could happen. And I could, you know, find a new source of income. I'm exploring like 14 different sources of income right now. And so one of those could blow up and then it could expedite my path to FI. It's almost like I gave up the security of a regular paycheck and opened myself up to the uncertainty. You know, like I had plotted out my whole plan before because it was based on a steady paycheck. And now it's not. So who knows? Maybe I reach FI by 40? Maybe not. But to answer your question directly, um, I have my IRA. Now a traditional IRA, that was a rollover from my 401k. I've got a Roth IRA, and also my HSA   Michael: That is tough to say five times fast.   Diania: Yeah yeah So I have, I would say, the bulk of my money is invested there, and I am like, VTSAX all the way, I just, I'm 100%. In stocks, I don't have any bonds, because I have a very high risk tolerance. But also I don't want to be, I don't want to have to rebalance every year. Right? It just is simpler for me that I don't need to rebalance every year. It's all in a total market index fund, set it and forget it. I also own my home.   Now, for the first two years, I had a roommate who was paying like 95% of the mortgage. So I did a little bit of house hacking. But I did buy this house with the knowing that it would be an amazing rental one day, so I'm living in it for now. And I believe that this will I don't look at it as an investment yet. I think it's going to be once I start renting it out sometime in the future.   But yeah, I would say that my investments are very much so just simple stock portfolio with my retirement vehicles, a property that could become a rental property, I do want to get more into real estate in the future. I will be honest, that is something that has intimidated me so much I should take your course.   Michael: Come to Roofstock Academy, Yeah absolutely!   Diania: Yes, yes. And all of my friends are reaching financial independence so much quicker than me through the real estate strategy. So I'll tell you a fun story. My one of my first events that I went to five events was called Camp Mustache. It's like followers of Mister Money Mustache. And I actually ran a breakout session. That was all attendee case studies. So there were four of us, who basically opened up the books on our finances, here's our income, here's our expenses. Here's where our portfolio stands today, here are the assumptions that we're making. Here's our growth trajectory. Here are some, you know, nuances we want to point out, and we let people like poke holes in our plan, because we're in a room full of   Michael: Vulnerable that is awesome.   Diania: So yeah, it was, it was great. For me, because, you know, I'm figuring all this stuff out on my own reading about stuff. And to be able to, like be in a room of other really smart people, many of which, who have already reached financial independence. And for them to be like, No, you're good. Like, do you don't need to stress about tax loss harvesting, you're fine. You know, like that, that was really reassuring to me to have. So it was almost like, I was always a good student, you know. So it feels like I got the good star that a plus for my teacher.   But what was fascinating about that breakout session is that two of the case studies, were these two guys, that made half my income, literally half my income, but they were on this fast track to FI they were going to reach it and half of my time, because of their real estate strategy. So I really do think like real estate is the way to do it the fastest. I think it's obviously more complex, it can be more labor intensive than just, you know, buying index funds. And, you know, you don't have to plunge a toilet on an index fund in the middle of the night. You know, you don't have to deal with tenants and all that stuff. So I definitely think that index funds strategy is easier. But it I think it is faster if you go with real estate.   Michael: Yeah. And just for everyone listening, how much did we pay you for that plug for real estate?   Diania: Nothing. I mean, it's just me watching all of my friends killing it. And like trying to work up the courage to do it myself.   Michael: Yeah, come on over. We I know a great place for you, we can get you all squared away. Because I couldn't agree more I think it you hit the nail on the head that anybody can go pick a stock and just put their money into it. And they can make money, they can lose money. I think real estate is more complicated. Coach Tom and I want to do their coaches at the Academy just put out a YouTube video talking about how passive real estate investing really is?   And the answer is, it's not for most of us, it's not here to go buy property it's not. So you really need to go learn about what's involved, versus kind of just throwing mud at the wall and seeing what sticks in terms of stock picking. Or you get this collective, you know, collective safety when you're buying the entire market. So I love that. I love that data. This has been so awesome. Thank you so much for hanging out with me. Do you have any final parting wisdom for everybody who's listening?   Diania: Oh, man, I feel like I gave you all my gems, all of my sound bites.   Michael: So then let's go back and re listen to this episode if you're listening at home, and where can people find out more about you and the economy conference?   Diania: Yeah, so if you go to economeconference.com. And that's econome with an ME at the end, not an MY, because if you look at the spelling of my name, I really appreciate misspelled words.   Economy conference.com, you can read about all our speakers, you can see all the programming we have planned. You can buy tickets there. Again, it's happening in just a month. So it's right around the corner at the University of Cincinnati. And then you can also subscribe to Optimal Finance Daily, which is the daily podcast that I host and you can allow me to serenade you with the sweet sounds of personal finance knowledge.   Michael: Fantastic. Well, thank you again. I definitely look forward to seeing you again. And I will talk to you soon.   Diania: Awesome. Thanks so much, Michael.   Michael: Thanks and talk to you soon. All righty, everybody, that was our episode a big big, big thank you to Diana that was so much fun. One of one of the most fun episodes I think we've recorded in a long time. So a big thank you to her again. There are so many nuggets of wisdom, pearls of joy of gold, whatever the expression is, so definitely go back and give that episode another listen to again, thanks so much for listening. And as always, we look forward to seeing you on the next one. Happy investing

Full Text of ReadingsThirty-first Sunday in Ordinary Time Lectionary: 152All podcast readings are produced by the USCCB and are from the Catholic Lectionary, based on the New American Bible and approved for use in the United States _______________________________________The Saint of the day is Saint Wolfgang of RegensburgWolfgang was born in Swabia, Germany, and was educated at a school located at the abbey of Reichenau. There he encountered Henry, a young noble who went on to become Archbishop of Trier. Meanwhile, Wolfgang remained in close contact with the archbishop, teaching in his cathedral school and supporting his efforts to reform the clergy. At the death of the archbishop, Wolfgang chose to become a Benedictine monk and moved to an abbey in Einsiedeln, now part of Switzerland. Ordained a priest, he was appointed director of the monastery school there. Later he was sent to Hungary as a missionary, though his zeal and good will yielded limited results. Emperor Otto II appointed him Bishop of Regensburg, near Munich. Wolfgang immediately initiated reform of the clergy and of religious life, preaching with vigor and effectiveness and always demonstrating special concern for the poor. He wore the habit of a monk and lived an austere life. The draw to monastic life never left him, including the desire for a life of solitude. At one point he left his diocese so that he could devote himself to prayer, but his responsibilities as bishop called him back. In 994, Wolfgang became ill while on a journey; he died in Puppingen near Linz, Austria. He was canonized in 1052. His feast day is celebrated widely in much of central Europe. Reflection Wolfgang could be depicted as a man with rolled-up sleeves. He even tried retiring to solitary prayer, but taking his responsibilities seriously led him back into the service of his diocese. Doing what had to be done was his path to holiness—and ours.

We start this episode by discussing what are some of the key skills for Product Owners. David shares that - as the Head of Product Management - he tries to help his people with the following skills:  Value-driven mindset: solving problems instead of delivering solutions Communication: adapting to the different scenarios and knowing how to navigate common situations for software projects  Empathy: being able to put themselves in the users, as well as stakeholder, and development team's shoes Decision making: Sometimes we don't have data, but we can't stop making decisions or the team will be paralysed.  If you listen to the end of the episode, we share one more (BONUS! :) skill that David helps Product Owners with The process to help Product Owners develop these skills We discuss how David prepares and sets the process for helping his Product Managers develop those skills. As training is not necessary, and the PO's must continuously receive feedback from their manager as well as their peers and stakeholders.  In this segment, we also discuss how the Scrum Master can help the PO develop these skills by forming a partnership.  The biggest obstacle Product Owners face In his experience, David has seen that often Product Owners face a deluge of information, and huge backlogs, leading to a feeling of overwhelm and powerlessness. This feeling of overwhelm may lead Product Owners to be scared of taking action, or making decisions. Later on in this episode, David shares a tool we can use to reduce overwhelm for Product Owners. The first skill to develop for Product Owners Even if there are several skills that Product Owners need to develop, there's always one to start with. When asked, David shares that he helps his Product Owners focus on the Value-driven Mindset skill at first. He uses a metaphor for help the Product Owners: the patient-doctor. He suggests that Product Owners are doctors, and must seek the root of the pain for the users, instead of just trying to deliver what they ask for. No responsible doctor would just give drugs to their patients without understanding what they suffer from. David suggests that Product Owners should take the same stance, and seek for the root cause of the pain being shared. How to reduce overwhelm for Product Owners When Product Owners start with a new team, and suddenly get overwhelmed by the very large backlogs that have been collected, they may be tempted to start working through the whole backlog, leading to an even stronger feeling of overwhelm. That's not David's approach. He suggests a different approach and describes how he has applied it in the past, to remove the feeling of overwhelm as a Product Owner. Resources for Scrum Masters working with Product Owners David suggests 3 different resources to accommodate the different learning styles out there. He suggests A blog on Medium called Serious Scrum A podcast by Melissa Perry called “Product Thinking”  A book by Marty Cagan: Inspired About David Pereira  David is a passionate Product Leader who loves leading teams in building solutions that challenge the status quo. He is currently the Head of Product Management at Virutal Identity in Munich.

Good morning, good afternoon and good evening wherever you are in the world, welcome to EV News Daily for Saturday 30th October. It's Martyn Lee here and I go through every EV story so you don't have to. Thank you to MYEV.com for helping make this show, they've built the first marketplace specifically for Electric Vehicles. It's a totally free marketplace that simplifies the buying and selling process, and help you learn about EVs along the way too. TESLA PLACES 45 GWH LFP BATTERY ORDER FROM CATL FOR 2022 - Tesla has reportedly placed an order for 45 GWh worth of lithium iron phosphate (LFP) batteries from Contemporary Amperex Technology (CATL), one of its key battery partners. - Considering that the Model 3 SR+ is reportedly fitted with a 55 kWh battery and the Model Y SR is equipped with a 60 kWh pack, the 45 GWh order from CATL could correspond to nearly 800,000 vehicles - LFP batteries are playing a larger role in Tesla's operations. Apart from their use in the company's Standard Range vehicles, the batteries are also being used for the company's energy storage products. These include the Megapack, Tesla's 3 MWh flagship battery storage unit that's specifically designed for grid use.

The nearly $2 trillion in spending includes a much-talked-about boost for the electric vehicle tax credit from $7,500 to $12,500. - On Thursday, the White House announced dollar figures and initiatives included in a package that "can pass both houses of Congress," it said. Specifically for the EV tax credits, the long-floated $12,500 for purchasing an electric vehicle is included as part of $555 billion earmarked to combat climate change. According to the White House, eligible EVs will need to be made in the US with union labor to qualify for the full $12,500 credit Original Source : https://www.cnet.com/roadshow/news/ev-tax-credit-increase-12500-biden-build-back-better/ AMAZON TAPS $2B CLIMATE FUND TO INVEST IN THREE MORE STARTUPS - Amazon has dipped back into its $2 billion climate fund and invested in several startups, including one that is developing fast-charging technology for electric vehicles as part of the e-commerce giant's broader effort to have net-zero carbon operations by 2040. - Resilent Power, an Austin, Texas-based company, announced Wednesday it has closed a $5 million seed round, which Amazon participated in but did not lead. - The startup has developed a solid-state transformer that enables multi-megawatt medium voltage fast charging at one-tenth the installation time. It's also able to handle solar generation, energy storage, vehicle-to-grid and microgrid tasks. Resilient says its system is capable of charging up to 24 vehicles at a time. It can also connect direct current or alternating current sources to a medium voltage line on the grid, which is a handy feature that helps avoid costly upgrades to the distribution grid.

The brand did the same with its all-electric iX Sports Activity Vehicle. BMW recently started i4 series production in Munich. According to a report by CarsDirect, the automaker made the EV available for preorder earlier this month, and it sold out quite quickly. The publication notes that deliveries of both the i4 eDrive40 and M50 trims are sold out. - The preorder page for the i4 notes that the first deliveries for both trims are sold out. BMW expects to begin deliveries in June 2022.  Buyers had to pay a $1,500 refundable deposit to pre-order the i4. If they hadn't yet done so, they'll likely have to wait until next summer for a second wave of deliveries to materialize.

According to a media report, however, the MEB model will not be built in Europe – but imported from China to Europe for the first time. - According to the portal Business Insider, around 15,000 ID.6s are to be imported to Europe per year. - The ID.6 is the first MEB model developed specifically for the Chinese market. At 4.88 metres in length, the electric SUV sits well above the ID.4. - Despite the transport costs, the margins on the ID.6 are expected to be significantly higher because production and labour costs are much lower in China. In a five-year cycle, up to 80,000 ID.6s are to be sold in Europe.

It's a diminutive electric moped with removable battery that comes in at just over £2k. Yes, that's less of an outlay than many regular e-pedal bikes - Piaggio is betting hard on Gen Z - eco conscious, tech-savvy urbanites who could be looking for that simple, safe and emission-free first bike. A ride with a user interface that's more Tron than Triumph, and that plugs in to charge at home, just like an iPhone. This is mobility as tech, buying a motorbike like buying a new gadget. - Acceleration is even and although the limited power is occasionally frustrating when overtaking buses (WIRED had to abort a few manoeuvres due to lack of power) or off ‘the lights', navigating UK urban speed limits of 20 and 30mph is a breeze, there's only so much throttle available. - The Piaggio 1 is available for £2,500 (£2,011 with UK EV grant) from Piaggio, Scooter and Motoden. The Piaggio 1 Active is £3,000 (£2,411 with UK EV Grant).

Please join author Jonathan Newman and Associate Editor Sandeep Das as they discuss the article "Outcomes of Participants With Diabetes in the ISCHEMIA Trials." Dr. Carolyn Lam: Welcome to circulation on the run, your weekly podcast, summary, and backstage pass to the journal and its editors. We're your co-hosts; I'm Dr. Carolyn Lam, Associate Editor from the National Heart Center and Duke National University of Singapore. Dr. Greg Hundley: And I'm Dr. Greg Hundley, Associate Editor, Director of the Pauley Heart Center at VCU health in Richmond, Virginia. Well, Carolyn, this week's feature, a couple of weeks ago, we had that feature forum on the ischemia trial. Now we're going to explore some of the outcomes in patients with diabetes, from the ischemia trial in the feature discussion today. But, before we get to that, let's grab a cup of coffee and start in on some of the other articles in this issue. So, how about if I go first, this time? This particular paper, Carolyn, we're going to start on one of your topics. I know you're a fan of diet related interventions. So high intake of added sugar is linked to weight gain and cardio-metabolic risk. And in 2018, the U S National Salt and Sugar Reduction Initiative proposed government supported voluntary national sugar reduction targets. Dr. Greg Hundley: This intervention's potential health and equity impacts and cost effectiveness are unclear. And so Carolyn, these authors, led by Dr. Renata Micha from Tufts University, incorporated a validated micro-simulation model - CVD Predict coded in C++, and used it to estimate incremental changes in type two diabetes, cardiovascular disease, quality adjusted life years, cost and cost effectiveness of this national policy. The model was run at the individual level and the model incorporated national demographic and dietary data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey across three cycles spanning from 2011 to 2016, added sugar related diseases from meta-analysis and policy costs and health-related costs from established sources and a simulated nationally representative us population was created and followed until age 100 years or death with 2019 as the year of intervention start and findings were evaluated over 10 years and a lifetime from healthcare and societal perspectives. Dr. Carolyn Lam: Ooooh, You so got my attention, Greg, a very important topic and so, what did they find? Dr. Greg Hundley: Right, Carolyn. So achieving the NSRI sugar reduction targets could prevent 2.48 million cardiovascular death related events, 0.5 million cardiovascular disease deaths, and three quarters of a million diabetes cases, gain 6.7 million quality adjusted life years, and save $160.8 billion in net cost from a societal perspective over a lifetime. The policy became cost-effective, defined as less than $150,000 for quality adjusted life years at six years and highly cost-effective at seven years with a cost savings noted at nine years. And therefore, Carolyn, implementing and achieving the NSSRI sugar reformation targets could generate substantial health gains, equity gains, and cost savings. Dr. Carolyn Lam: Wow, thanks Greg. So, moving from a very publicly health focused paper to this paper that really focuses on hypoplastic left heart syndrome with very, very scientifically significant findings. Now, first, we know hypoplastic left heart syndrome is the most common and severe manifestation within the spectrum of left ventricular outflow tract obstruction defects occurring in association with ventricular hypoplasia. The pathogenesis is unknown, but hemodynamic disturbances are assumed to play a prominent role. Authors led by Doctors Moretti and Laugwitz from Technical University of Munich in Germany, as well as Dr. Gruber from Yale University School of Medicine, and their colleagues combined whole exome sequencing of parent offspring, trios, transcriptome profiling of cardiomyocytes from ventricular biopsies and immuno-pluripotent stem cell derived cardiac progenator or cardiomyocyte models of 2D and 3D cardiogenesis, as well as single cell gene expression analysis to decode the cellular and molecular principles of hypoplastic left heart syndrome phenotypes. Dr. Greg Hundley: Wow, Carolyn, there is a lot of data, very complex preclinical science here. So what did they find? Dr. Carolyn Lam: Indeed, Greg. As I said, scientifically incredible and rigorous, and they found that initial aberrations in the cell cycle unfolded protein response, autophagy hub led to disrupted cardiac progenator lineage commitment, consequently, impaired maturation of ventricular cardiomyocytes limited their ability to respond to growth cues. Resulting in premature cell cycle exit and increase apoptosis under biomechanical stress in 3D heart structures. Together, these studies provide evidence that the hypoplastic left heart syndrome pathogenesis is not exclusively of hemodynamic origin, and they revealed novel potential nodes for rational design of therapeutic intervention. Dr. Greg Hundley: Wow, Carolyn, we really need research in this topic and this is great preclinical science that we're getting here in our journal. Congratulations to the authors and what a great presentation of that by you. Well, Carolyn and my next paper there remain major uncertainties regarding disease activity within the Retain Native Aortic Valve, as well as bioprosthetic valve durability, following transcatheter aortic valve implantation. And these authors led by Doctor Jacek Kwiecinski, from the Institute of Cardiology, aimed in a multi-center cross-sectional observational cohort study to assess native aortic valve disease activity and bioprosthetic valve durability in patients with TAVI in comparison to subjects with bioprosthetic surgical aortic valve replacement or SAVR. Dr. Carolyn Lam: Oh, very interesting. And what were the results? Dr. Greg Hundley: An interesting comparison, Carolyn. So in patients with TAVI, native aortic valves demonstrated 18 F sodium fluoride uptake around the outside of the bioprosthesis that showed a modest correlation with the time from TAVI. Next, 18 sodium fluoride uptake in the bias prosthetic leaflets was comparable between SAVR and TAVI groups. Next, the frequencies of imaging evidence of bioprosthetic valve degeneration at baseline were similar on echo cardiography 6 and 8% respectively, CT, 15 and 14% respectively, and with PET scanning. Next, baseline 18 F sodium fluoride uptake was associated with subsequent change in peak aortic velocity for both TAVI and SAVR. And on multi-variable analysis, the 18 F sodium fluoride uptake was the only predictor of peak velocity progression. And so Carolyn, therefore, in patients with TAVI, native aortic valves demonstrate evidence of ongoing active disease and across imaging modalities, TAVI degeneration is of similar magnitude to bioprosthetic SAVR suggesting comparable midterm durability. Dr. Carolyn Lam: Very nice, important stuff. Dr. Carolyn Lam: Well, thanks, Greg. Let's tell everyone about the other papers in today's issue. There's an exchange of letters between Doctors Baillon and Blaha regarding the article very high coronary artery, calcium and association with cardiovascular disease events, non-cardiovascular outcomes and mortality from MESA. There's an ECG challenge from Dr. Bell Belhassen on a left bundle branch block, tachycardia following transcatheter aortic valve replacement. And On My Mind paper by Dr. Neeland on cardiovascular outcomes trials for weight loss interventions, another tool for cardiovascular prevention, another Research Letter by Dr. Nakamura on clinical outcomes of Rivaroxaban Mono therapy in heart failure, patients with atrial fibrillation and stable coronary artery disease. So insights from the AFIRE trial, and finally, a Research Letter from Dr. Kumoro three-dimensional visualization of hypoxia induced, pulmonary vascular remodeling in mice. Dr. Greg Hundley: Great, Carolyn, and I've got an in-depth piece from Professor Jia Sani entitled breadth of life, heart disease, linked to developmental hypoxia. Dr. Greg Hundley: Well, Carolyn, how about we get onto that feature discussion and learn more about results from the ischemia trial? Dr. Carolyn Lam: Let's go Greg. Dr. Carolyn Lam: Well, we all know how important diabetes is as a risk factor for atherosclerotic coronary disease. And we know it's a very common comorbidity among patients with chronic coronary disease, but the question is do patients with diabetes and chronic coronary disease on top of guideline directed medical therapy and lifestyle interventions, of course, do they derive incremental benefit from an invasive management strategy of their coronary disease? Well, we are going to try to answer that question today in our feature discussion. Thank you so much for joining us today. The first author and corresponding author of today's feature paper, which tells us about results from the ischemia trials. And that's Dr. Jonathan Newman from New York university Grossman School of Medicine. We also have associate editor Sandeep Das from UT Southwestern. So welcome both of you. And if I could please start with Jonathan reminding us, perhaps, what were the ischemia trials and then what you tried to answer and do in today's paper, Dr. Jonathan Newman: Of course, Carolyn, and thank you so much for having me and for the discussion with Sandeep. It's a pleasure to be here. So sure has a little bit of background, as you indicated, the ischemia trials basically enrolled and for the purposes of this discussion and this analysis, I'm referring to both the main ischemia trial and the ischemia chronic kidney disease trials. So ischemia CKD under the umbrella of the ischemia trials. Ischemia stands for the international study of comparative health effectiveness with medical and invasive approaches. And the purpose of the trial was to test to see whether a routine invasive approach on a background of intensive guideline directed medical therapy for high risk patients with chronic coronary disease and at least moderate ischemia and obstructive coronary disease documented on a blinded CCTA or computed coronary tomography angiography prior to randomization was associated with benefits for a cardiovascular composite. And we looked in this analysis at whether or not there was appreciable heterogeneity of treatment effect or a difference in treatment effect for patients compared without diabetes in the ischemia trials, in ischemia and ischemia CKD. Dr. Carolyn Lam: Great, thanks for lining that up so nicely. So what, Dr. Jonathan Newman: So the results of our analysis really highlighted a couple of things that I think you touched upon initially, the first thing that I would highlight is that diabetes was very common in this high risk cohort with chronic coronary disease, over 40% of participants in the ischemia trials, 43% with obstructive coronary disease and moderate to severe, you may have had diabetes. Perhaps not surprisingly patients with diabetes had higher rates of death or MI than those without diabetes. And the rates were highest among those patients that required insulin, had insulin treated diabetes, but using really robust methods to assess for heterogeneity using a Bassen assessment of heterogeneity of treatment effect accounting for violation of proportional hazards. The fact that there was an upfront hazard and a late benefit, we really saw no difference in death or MI, between the invasive or conservative strategies for patients with, or without diabetes over about three years of follow-up. Dr. Jonathan Newman: And the results importantly were consistent for ischemia and ischemia CKD and provided the rationale for us when we started by looking to see if the distribution of risk and characteristics allowed the trials to be combined. The study really confirms this higher risk of death or a MI for chronic coronary disease patients who have diabetes extends these findings for those patients with moderate or severe ischemia. And I think really notably also adds information about chronic coronary disease patients with diabetes and CKD. That's sort of the overall findings. And I'm happy to talk in more detail about that. Dr. Carolyn Lam: I love the way you explain that Jonathan and especially, going into detail on what was so different about the paper and the really important statistical methods that made these findings robust, very important and impactful findings. If I could ask Sandeep to share your thoughts. Dr. Sandeep Das: Thanks, Carolyn. You know, I am just a big fan of everything that's come out of the ischemia group. One of the things that I really most enjoy as a consumer of the literature is when well done studies give me results that are unexpected. And I know it's become fashionable now to say that everybody knew that all along that this is what going to be the result. But honestly, I think we all sort of are many of us thought that there's going to be a subgroup somewhere that's really going to benefit from an invasive approach in terms of preventing heart outcomes. I think the key here that really jumped out at me was that this is identifying what we typically think of is a very high risk subgroup. You know, patients with diabetes patients with multi-vessel coronary disease patients with insulin dependent diabetes. Dr. Sandeep Das: And we did see the association with mortality across the increased disease severity and the increased severity of diabetes as expected. But really we didn't see a signal that revascularization, routinely revascularizing patients, even the higher risk patients led to clinically relevant heart outcome benefits. So I thought that that was a really interesting top line finding and really that's kind of. I mean, it would have been interesting if it was the other way too, but it was, it really was kind of the hook that got me into the paper. Dr. Sandeep Das: I actually have a question for Jonathan, one of the things that I think we spend a lot of time as an editorial group thinking about and talking about, and we bounce back and forth with the authors a few times was the idea that relatively few of these patients with multi-vessel CAD ended up having CABG. So, you would typically think of diabetes multi-vessel CAD as being a pretty strong signal for patients that may benefit in terms of mortality from having bypass surgery. And here it was a relatively small group about a third, or maybe even less than a third. And I realized up front, they excluded the left main and the patients that had angina had a CTA, et cetera. But what I'd be curious as to your thoughts about, the benefits of bypass surgery and diabetes, which have been established in other trials. Dr. Jonathan Newman: It's a great question. And I think we really appreciated the questions from you and from the editors to try and get at some of the nuance with this issue. As you indicated in the ischemia and ischemia CKD trials overall, and the patients in the invasive treatment arm, it was about 25% or so 26% and 15% were revascularized with CABG. Part of the issue here is that it gets a little tricky with the use of CCTA of pre randomization CTA to define coronary artery severity, which was not required in the CKD population due to impaired renal function. But what we can say is among the patients with diabetes and multi-vessel coronary disease, 29% were revascularized surgically in their combined analysis, which is comparable to the 30% in Bery 2d that were revascularized via bypass surgery, as we've discussed. And as you know, the decision for surgical versus percutaneous revascularization in ischemia, as in Barry 2d was non-randomized though we might want to, we really tried to be very, very cautious in terms of comparing revascularization strategies on outcomes for patients with diabetes and multi-vessel CAD, which has you suggested. Dr. Jonathan Newman: And as we pointed out, the proportion with multi-vessel CAD was more common amongst in patients with diabetes compared with those patients without diabetes. The other thing I would sort of say in the framework of, the revascularization and strategies for revascularization, comparing, let's say ischemia to Barry 2d or to freedom. Basically we have very little data about revascularization approaches for those patients with creatinine with impaired renal function and, patients with the crediting greater than two were excluded from Barry 2d. So while we had about 15% or so that had severe CKD. So in the GFR, less than 30 are on dialysis. And we know that's an extremely high risk group of patients with diabetes and chronic coronary disease. And we don't have great evidence on which strategy for revascularization if at all provides additional benefit. So I think it's a really a tough question to answer, and we tried to be as judicious as possible in our comments about revascularization approaches, given the nature of the trial design. Dr. Carolyn Lam: Gee, thanks so much, Jonathan, for explaining that. So, well, I actually have a related question now, referring to the medical therapy. Can I, sort of ask you about the fact that, these days that the rage is all about GLP one receptor agonist, for example, that are known to reduce the risk of atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease and diabetes. So these ischemic trials, I assume, did not have a high usage of these medications. And what do you think would be the impact, if anything, I suppose even more for guideline directed medical therapy. Huh? Dr. Jonathan Newman: Yeah. So it's a great question, Carolyn. As you know, in strategy trials and clinical trials in general, that take a while it's always a real challenge to keep the trial contemporary with current clinical practice, whether it's revascularization strategies or changes in medical therapy. And as you indicated, the real revolution and glucose lowering therapies with profound cardiovascular benefit for patients with diabetes, we worked hard to try and stay up to date and encourage sites around the world with the use of best SGLT2 inhibitors and GLP ones. The rates were very, very low and we don't actually given the fact that the ischemia trials were conducted a real multinational and is really an international trial is over 330 sites worldwide. So we really had to balance the data that we could get from sites with the reality of collecting and running this trial across the whole world. Dr. Jonathan Newman: So we don't actually know. We know insulin use or non-use or oral medication use or non-use or no medication use or non-use, but not much more than that. From what, as, you know, unfortunately, even after now, six going on seven years of impressive data for the benefit of these agents, uptake remains low for patients with diabetes, whether it's with coronary disease or heart failure. And there was certainly the case with the trial, which started back in 2015, or sorry, before 2015, even before the results of EMPA-REG. So the rates of those agents were low. I would expect as you indicated that if we did have greater use of these beneficial therapies. Medical therapy may have performed even better and potentially given an added boost potentially for our high risk, even higher risk subgroups that we'd looked at that were available in these trials. Dr. Carolyn Lam: Oh, thanks again. I wish we could go on forever, but we've got just a little bit of time left. So I'd like to ask you both for your quick take home messages for the audience. Could I start with Sandeep and then Jonathan? Dr. Sandeep Das: Yeah. You know, I think a key take home from this is that, although it may be naively intuitive that a very aggressive invasive strategy would be superior, especially in high risk patients. You know, the data are very, very convincing that it's not. And so therefore I think in an absolute minimum, you have plenty of time and ability to think about these patients carefully, to select who, if anybody would be a great candidate for revascularization, more aggressive therapy and more invasive therapy, but the most patients will do well with conservative management. Dr. Sandeep Das: And I think that that's the, that's a real key take home here. And I think that the points that Jonathan raised about, you know, poor uptake of GLP one RAs and SGLT 2 inhibitors in the community as they're so far are key, right? So we have great medicines that we just under used, and that to me is the other sort of clarion call here is that if in the context of a nice trial, that you can see similar result for invasive conservative approaches, then lets, let's get our medical therapy where it needs to be to provide our patients the best outcomes we can Speaker 3: Love it, Jonathan. Dr. Jonathan Newman: Yeah. So I'm really glad that Sandeep brought up the issue of medical therapy in the trial. And maybe I can take a minute to sort of frame what San kind of build off of what Sandeep just said, you know, we, in the context of this clinical trial, you know, Dr. Judy Hawkman, the study chair and Dr. David Marin, the co-chair and I, we worked very hard with optimizing medical therapy across the trials, for all participants. So really getting patients on the maximum tolerated doses of high-intensity statins, lowering patient's LDL as aggressively as possible evolving our systolic blood pressure targets. And it was extremely challenging. And at the end of the day, we see that patients with diabetes were more likely than those without to get to our LDL goal. We used a threshold problematic concept that that still may be to some extent, but they were less likely to achieve their systolic blood pressure goals. Dr. Jonathan Newman: And I think Sandeep was exactly right. We have a way to go with implementing existing therapies, existing medical therapy. There may be a benefit for as demonstrated in Dr. S. for patients that remain highly symptomatic to derive symptom benefit with revascularization. The other context I would sort of add with the medical therapy issue is that despite really aggressive medical therapy, and we really did as much as we could, patients with diabetes still had, a 40, 50% greater risk of death or MI than those without diabetes. So there's still this idea of kind of residual risk. And these were patients with diabetes that were very well managed from a medical and glycemic control perspective. So we still have a lot of work to do. And I think understanding ways we can benefit our patients is really that challenge.

BLACKROCK COULD PUMP HALF A BILLION EUROS INTO HIGH POWER CHARGING "The US investment firm BlackRock is to lead a capital increase of 750 million euros by the Ionity joint venture, which intends to use the money to expand further its high power charging network, German media reports. There is also an indication of the next expansion stage." says electrive: "Manager Magazin refers to people involved saying BlackRock itself would invest 500 million euros as part of the capital increase. According to the report, the remaining 250 million euros would come from Ionity's existing owners, i.e. Audi and Porsche from the VW Group, Daimler, BMW, Ford and Hyundai-Kia. The capital increase would value Ionity at 2.25 billion euros. The US investor would thus have a 22 per cent stake in the charging joint venture. However, Ionity has not confirmed the capital increase or BlackRock's investment. The fact that Ionity is looking for external investors has been apparent since last winter. As the carmakers involved wanted to accelerate the expensive HPC expansion, they aimed to attract private equity capital.

With an investment of 1.1 billion RMB (US$172 million), the company is further strengthening its R&D footprint and technological capabilities in the world's biggest car market. The fully-fledged R&D center focuses on major technological trends, tailor-made innovation and significantly accelerating Daimler's local product development." according to Green Car Congress: "The eDrive lab is equipped with two test chambers that can simulate a temperature range of -30 ˚C to +50 ˚C. The two sets of 4-wheel dynamometers can test whole electric vehicles, components or real battery pack tests. By adjusting the roller force and using big data applications, the intelligent test bench can simulate real driving conditions such as air resistance or different topographies. This allows comprehensive testing of next-generation electric vehicles at an early stage, under extreme conditions and throughout the year. The new eDrive lab also sets benchmarks in terms of sustainability and energy conservation: It is able to recuperate the energy of the tested vehicle back into the electric grid, which reduces the overall energy consumption significantly."

But this could be slashed in half by setting an ambitious target to convert every car in the country to electric by 2035." reports The Guardian: "The modelling was released by the Australian Conservation Foundation (ACF), which commissioned accounting firm Deloitte to examine the community benefit from increasing the uptake of electric vehicles (EVs).  Petrol cars contribute heavily to air, noise and water pollution through the particles emitted from the exhaust and through the waste grease, oil and rubber needed to run them. By contrast, electric vehicles have fewer components and more efficient motors. As this pollution leads to illness, the cost ends up being borne by the health system."

The company claims to offer EV makers an alternative to existing technologies that use cobalt as the main ingredient.  The new technology enables the prototype battery pack to have an energy storage capacity of 160Wh per kg, and the next-generation product's density is expected to exceed 200Wh per kg, according to Robin Zeng Yuqun, founder and chairman of CATL. He admitted that the new technology would have lower energy density.

APPLE CAR BATTERY TALKS BREAKING DOWN UNDER WEIGHT OF APPLE'S DEMANDS "Two of three potential Apple Car vendors are reportedly having difficulty meeting Apple's production requirements. Specifically, a new report claims that the main stumbling block is manufacturing advanced lithium ion phosphate (LFP) batteries in the United States for Apple, and the effort it would take for exclusivity. Suppliers cited in the report are BYD and CATL. CATL is the world's main battery manufacturer for electric vehicles." reports Apple Insider: "CATL is a Chinese firm, which is said to be complicating matters. It reportedly had difficulty sourcing appropriate staff in the US suitable to assembling a product development team just for Apple. BYD has a plant in the US already, seemingly making it a better choice. However, the company allegedly said to Apple that it would not build a plant just for the Apple Car. The report on Friday morning from Reuters claims that the companies told Apple at some point in the last two months that they were not able to meet Apple's requirements. Since both manufacturers told Apple that they would not be able to meet demands, talks have stalled. Both companies, however, are said to remain open to overtures from Apple."

The money — which is coming from Tennessee's current $2.1 billion budget surplus — is the single largest investment in the history of the state. It comes at a time when many major automakers are looking to build new facilities in the US dedicated to EVs, batteries, or other supply chain components necessary for electric vehicles." writes The Verge: "South Korean battery company SK Innovation, which it calls “Blue Oval City.” Ford is also simultaneously spinning up battery factories in Kentucky. Ford will get $500 million in the form of a grant. The rest is being allocated in a few different ways — the result of a special session held this week where state legislators haggled for three days. The state will commit $200 million for road construction around the site and $138.2 million for other infrastructure and demolition work. Another $40 million will go to building a Tennessee College of Applied Technology site near the campus, and $5 million is being offered up for legal services."

According to Chinese media, Tesla has secured an initial order of 10 GWh worth of LFP battery cells from BYD, to power the Model 3 and Y in their standard range versions. 10 GWh is enough to assemble more than 181,000 battery packs for the Tesla Model 3 with 55 kWh each, or more than 166,000 for the Model Y with 60 kWh each." writes Pedro for PushEVs: "Currently, the LFP battery packs of Tesla made with CATL's battery cells only reach an energy density of 126 Wh/kg, but BYD's Blade battery packs are more energy dense and have already reached 150 Wh/kg. Not only the cobalt-free BYD Blade battery packs have good energy density, performance, safety and longevity, they currently also have the lowest kWh price, estimated at 55 euros (64 USD)."

The Level 2 driver-assist system, as defined by the SAE Scale of Autonomy, is not actually self-driving and requires a human driver to pay attention at all times -- and Tesla's trying to allow only the most responsible folks into its beta program. Except it's pretty simple for anyone who ponies up $10,000 to earn a perfect Safety Score, the metric Tesla is using to grant access." reports CNET.com: "deleted Reddit post that guide drivers through the steps to earn the coveted perfect Safety Score (which is also used for Tesla Insurance, by the way). One way is to simply not send the driving behavior data to Tesla; another is to restart the process entirely. Tesla drivers have the option to hold down both scroll-wheel buttons on the steering wheel to wipe the car's Media Control Unit. This also wipes the data used for the Safety Score.

The exact proportion has not yet been decided, with the Department for Transport intending to hold a consultation on the matter, but the aim is to “improve consumer choice” and help deliver on the commitment to end the sale of new conventional petrol and diesel cars by 2030 and hybrid sales by 2035." writes AutoExpress: "The announcement comes as part of the publication of the Government's net-zero strategy, which also includes £620million of additional funding for the plug-in car grant and EV charging infrastructure, particularly the on-street residential chargepoint scheme. A further £350 million will be allocated for supporting the UK automotive sector in electrifying its vehicles and supply chains." https://www.autoexpress.co.uk/news/356346/electric-car-mandate-announced-car-manufacturers REBORN BMW 3 SERIES TO USHER IN NEW ELECTRIC ERA "BMW will kick-start the third phase of its electrification strategy in 2025 with an all-new executive saloon that will serve as the vanguard for a reinvented line-up based on a new EV architecture." says Autocar: "It will feature Munich's sixth-generation electric powertrain, long-range battery technology, rapid-charging capability, lightweight construction, a fully customisable digital operating system and a new mix of sustainable construction materials. Set to be sold alongside other new battery-electric and combustion-engined saloons, the new model, known under the internal working title NK1, will be the first car based on the Neue Klasse EV platform, paving the way for a whole new generation of EVs, including an extended line-up of SUVs." Here's my hesitation: "As well as forming the basis for all of BMW's new electric models, the aluminum and high-strength steel structure is being engineered to support plug-in hybrid powertrains with a front-mounted engine and an electrified rear axle in combination."

The automaker plans to launch 25 stores in key cities by the end of this year and 100 more stores within five years.

(NYSE: WBX) and Nuvve Holding Corp. (Nasdaq: NVVE), announced a first of its kind vehicle-to-grid (V2G) partnership in Iberia designed to reduce mounting pressure on the grid and offer users significant financial incentives The partnership will incorporate Wallbox's pioneering hardware, Quasar, the world's first DC bidirectional home charger, into Nuvve's patented V2G software technology, GIVe™.

VOLVO'S RANGE ASSISTANT WILL TEACH YOU TO EKE OUT EV MILES "Volvo is trialling a beta version of its new Range Assistant app, designed to help drivers of its XC40 Recharge and forthcoming C40 Recharge squeeze out as many miles from a charge as possible. The app is coming to the electric SUV by way of an over-the-air update before the end of October, while its crossover sibling will have it pre-installed when production officially gets underway." according to topgear.com: "The Range Assistant promises drivers ‘a clear and accurate' range estimate based on real-time energy consumption, automatically adjusting the climate control to conserve juice when it's needed most. It also provides a breakdown on how energy is being used inside the car, and suggests ways drivers can adapt their driving style to be as efficient as possible. A bit like the Microsoft paperclip, but for throttle and braking instead of letter writing."

Both companies last year set an ambitious target of 100 percent EVs by decade's end. Now they say the unprecedented EV tax credits, rebates and charging infrastructure funding that's included in the contentious $3.5 trillion reconciliation package could help flip their fleets." says eeNews.net: " As it stands, the measure includes an expansive clean energy tax bill that would increase EV credits. If passed, it could cut the price of some battery-powered cars by as much as a third — boosting EV competitiveness and, in some cases, making them cheaper than combustion-engine automobiles.  The high price of EVs and a dearth of charging options in urban areas are considered by both Uber and Lyft two of the primary obstacles." https://www.eenews.net/articles/uber-lyft-lobby-for-ev-reconciliation-provisions/ NEW QUESTION OF THE WEEK WITH EMOBILITYNORWAY.COM When buying a used electric car, how do you feel about servicing?
