1:30 am
it takes a lot of time to produce. so the better and more detail to storyboard the easier and quicker the 3 d animators and directors can work without having to do too much gas work. after that, we'll take the story board and turn it into 2 d and a magic. this is basically a timeline where we put all the frames and it becomes a sort of 2 d cartoon with low frame rate. and then we put in the dialogue. we do the sound before the animated, unlike many big budget movies. before record the actress, she does several takes, which is what works then we put in the sounds, the music. and with this model of the episode we hold screenings, we'll look at it over decide in some changes, what works, what doesn't. and when everyone's happy launched 3 d production with the storyboard complete and the dialogue recorded. it's after the animation team. this is where the magic of animation happens. all the scripts, the idea is the storyboards. they all get sent here and turned into something more closely resembling the final product. and it's all done by these animators and
1:31 am
directors. here they take the basic movements of characters depicted in the storyboards and bring them to life. that 1st the story board goes to the director. he then assigns the scenes to the animators and gives them his feedback. and then they both play out the scenes as if with live actors come up with ways for everything to look great, which is fun to watch. they determined has a characters move at what pace and then the animators do their job. so in storyboard form, this is what this seems like. and here's what the animators did with it. here you can compare the found is already recorded during the storyboard phase. so when it's passed on to the animators, they apply phonemes to the models. here we already have a library of basic phonemes bows, continence that can be applied to the scene, to fit with the line. then the animators go through it all to make it fit the scene . he can add a smile or frown. one simple scene which last, just over a 2nd,
1:32 am
can take up to 5 days to animate. and each is just one of the hundreds of scenes that go into creating an episode. and then after months of time consuming and ridiculous work, the final version is pretty up rendered and finally released to the world. and if you're wondering just how wide spread this show is while just take a look at the map where you can watch it. but what exactly has made us shows as an international success? well, perhaps is the fact that it can be understood by anyone, anywhere around the world. said machine, it is the relationship between child and adult. any parent can see reflection of their relationship with their child, and any child can see this as well. it's a great idea that they, creator of the show, a lack of cough came up with. and it's certainly taken off and says we use the pantomime and this parent child relationship, but any child in the world can understand. there is really no translation needed. even though we do translated into $43.00 languages and localize it. but none of
1:33 am
that is essential to understanding of the show. there are children over the world and children behave like children, and parents can see that. so that's what it takes to capture the attention of children these days. and everyone knows that's not an easy task, but marsh and the bear seems to have tapped into something that children throughout the world can understand and relate to. and with all the stories it's told and has yet to tell, hopefully it will make these children better. people and along the way, leave some lasting impressions and goodbye from all of us. have a great day. me, this is boom by someone business show you can't afford to miss. i'm rachel bluff. branch of boring washington coming up. john is regulatory crackdown continues to expand at the nation's plan, the ban on certain firm watching us. i p. o add, we dive into the latest efforts. markets are winding down for the weekend. we bring
1:34 am
you a look at the state of economies around the globe in the u. s. federal reserve insight into future policy play. and then we take you to the u. k. we're the nation's ongoing recovery. is being threatened by a massive labor shortage. we'll discuss. we have a lot to get to today, so let's get started. the really the program with the latest on china's efforts to crap down on big tech and specifically on the company's listing in the us. asian has repeatedly cited security concerns, especially for the companies like the ride share app dbi, which hold the data of hundreds of millions of users. reports are now saying that it's early as next month. the chinese government will propose new rules that would ban companies with large amounts of sensitive consumer data from going public in
1:35 am
the us. however, companies with less sensitive data such as those in the pharmaceutical industry, are still likely to receive chinese regulatory approval for foreign listings. so how is this likely to impact markets worldwide, and what will it mean for tensions between china and the us? joining us now to discuss the latest last co host, christy i. now christy, the latest report stay that they seeing is targeting those with a certain level of sensitive data. why is this the focus right now? while actually been the focus for many years now, the plan has been firm hunting for years, but now it's rapidly gaining momentum. giving the growing schism between the u. s. and china and accusations from both sides of security breaches. so the plan is designed to protect chinese interest and to help support the chinese economy in the coming decade. and this include pilot projects for the state supervisor, data trading markets. so the idea, this splinter net, where you have
1:36 am
a western internet and the eastern internet has existed for a while, but the trade war last year and deepening mistrust has now fuel the wave. data is becoming a critical battle ground between china and the us and both sides fear the other that unchecked collection by private firms could allow state actors to weaponized information on infrastructure and other national interests. and then of course, the other reason why china tiny script on sensitive data is to potentially help buoy slowing economic growth. this information could range from just about anything from health record and court documents to maps and shopping history. and this could then be categorized, standardized, and valued, making a commodity to be traded. and this is something that china has been working on for quite a while now that social media has collected so much data. so how do we really tap into the value that flows from data from an economic standpoint? and christy, what kind of message is this sending to other nations like the united states, given that they are really affecting the future for lifting,
1:37 am
sending the message to other countries that the u. s. isn't the only big capital market out there and that there are risks to listing in the us. the us used to be the de facto market to i p o on, given its global reach and investor participation, they're kind of sending the message that there are other places to raise capital, not just the us. and it's capital markets are no longer what they use to be. and also, while there's a certain paranoid aspect to it by citing these security concerns over listing in the us, it's also pointing out to other countries that, hey, if you list your tech darla here in the us, they might look under hood and demand that you release all the sense of data you collect on us citizens over to them and this term sensitive. it's just completely arbitrary. they can say anything sensitive and or to lay claim on it. the us capital market was the gold standard because it once represented a free market. and now it doesn't seem to be the case anymore because what happened to china could very well happen to any other country that gets on the u. s. is bad
1:38 am
side. the u. s. threatened to deal with chinese companies forcing institutional to divest interests and chinese companies. and let's not forget tick tock. the u. s. tried to force it to sell itself over to an american company, which essentially is legal theft, a chinese i p. and now it looks like the future battle ground of tech will lie within use their data, which is a valuable commodity and something which foreign companies will not want to turn over to the u. s. yeah, it really is interesting to see how china is responding to the policies we've seen from the u. s. over the last few years. now another story that came up this week was the fact that the chinese government is also moving to regulate the algorithms used by tech companies like fight, dance, and tens, that whole thing. now, of course, china is known for having strict controls that band. the majority of social media sites we use here in the u. s. so what kind of an impact is this restriction on individual algorithms expected to have? well, i think it's a huge, over step by the government to try to regulate the algorithms of private company.
1:39 am
essentially what they're saying is, hey, you're doing too good of a job at what your built to do. we need you to tone it down a bit and be less powerful and thus less profitable. the cac released a 30 point draft proposal friday and a soliciting public feedback until september 26. and these new rules will regulate algorithm empowered recommendation activities on the internet, including content aggregation, personalized recommendation and search ranking. and this is quite disturbing because it means that content that you can see can further be regulated online and controversial topics and chat thread will be buried even though it's clearly trending. so this is the latest effort to influence online public opinion amid efforts to regulate the platform, economy, and information distribution. but on the other hand, there is some good in these proposed rules to though ad agencies and platform service providers. they've using algorithms for bundling sales or learning consumers. and they even buy and sell information to 3rd parties without user
1:40 am
permission. so in certain instances, these rules are going to be a good thing for consumer data, privacy and protection. so the use of these algorithms help the platform operators, but then the merchants and the users, they're often squeezed. so there isn't a distribution of profits in the end. so in this respect, there is some good, it will help to regulate the bods and the ad agencies that post fake reviews fake like to upload certain products and manipulating online rankings. but overall it's going to be very tough space to regulate because the question is, who controls the algorithm and who the algorithm serve it, chris? i have about 20 seconds left for this question. but when you talk about that, are we really only looking at kind of the nefarious algorithms? or are we looking at something like tick tock, which was that was one of the big portions when they talked about a possible sale. was that there algorithm was so good, they didn't want to let that go. exactly. and you see this with tense then as well because tense and actually how to regulate, how, how good their gaming platform was. so then they had to regulate how much time
1:41 am
chinese kids actually spend online playing their video games. so this is another, there's another aspect of china tried to control the content that people see. and the time that they spend online to try to influence what the chinese culture value most, they can spend all their time on gaming and shopping and consumer to them. they have to spend time on other things. so they are trying to monitor how much time citizens allocate to what aspects, which is quite disturbing actually. wow, it'll certainly be interesting to see not only what those policies are, but what the government is actually able to control in this new boom bus. christie, i thank you so much for your time and insight. thank you. the global markets are mostly up for the week, rebounding from last week's losses, as investors kept an eye on federal reserve chair drone powers remarks following the jackson hole symposium and continuing concerns over the cobra. 1900 delta

white house prepared for us supreme court order that could invalidate the new federal eviction moratorium, newly released data show state and local governments across the us have only distributed 11 percent of the funds congress allocated to help pay off the debts accrued by renters during the coven, 1900 pandemic. i got sick in that of being backed up by my rent, because i was in the hospital for a while. and also i got back up during the winter time because of the pen demik and the grown of iris and being backed up on my rent. and my landlord doesn't want to hear it. so he got me in july, more than 340000 households received nearly $1700000000.00 in rental and utility assistance. that's about a 15 percent increase compared to june. and more than doubled, the number of households served in july. that money bringing the total amount of funds release to approximately $5100000000.00 or 11 percent of the $46500000000.00 rental aid program. new york congressman representative monday or jones taking

1:52 am
air. welcome back. the economic recovery in the united kingdom could be flowing as the nation face, the labor shortage and supply chain disruptions due to the cobra. 1900 pandemic, and fall out from breakfast. back in july. job openings in britain cross the 1000000 mark for the 1st time since records have been kept despite many workers coming off of furlough and unemployment numbers continuing to fall. there have recently been supply shortages throughout the food industry, including restaurants, and supermarkets, with industry groups, blaming breasts, it as you nationals working in truck driving farming and food processing left the nation. meanwhile, a recent quarterly survey by the confederation of british industry shows optimism and consumer facing business fell to minus 17 percent for august, down from a positive 47 percent in may, the worst reading for the height of the pandemic. so what does all of this mean for
1:53 am
the future of the economy? well, the discuss, let's bring it forward. board member of the british america business association, and president of straw mark business development consultants. i was a pleasure to have you on hillary fletcher, brian. now we've heard a lot about labor shortages here in the united states, but it seems there is a similar situation, the u. k. but with different factors, what's behind it and just how bad is best for you, right? but there are neighbor issues in the u. k. as they're all in the u. s. and of course many countries, i think the 1st factor is really the same as the us. i mean, the follow program that was wonderful during pandemic hits is prevent a lot of people from going back to work. and that program hasn't completely ended, and the u. k. government is still helping knows that we're self employed as well. so you got the follow issue. you also have the exodus of the you work has before the pandemic. they want to go back to their countries, particularly eastern europe and with the travel restrictions they weren't allowed to come back into the u. k. then you have the laurie drive issue. i mean, this is, she was gone for 25 years, mark selden is the financial a be
1:54 am
a media advisor to the you president the u. n. and he said this has gone on for 25 years and it has, i can remember this from when i emigrated to the u. s. it's low wages, it's not a job but very pleasant and it's always been there in the u. k. so the laurie dr. issues never going away. the 3rd is that the 4th issue is that of, if you look at it, you're going to see that immigration normally has occurred into the u. k. that labor shortage is exacerbated because of the travel restrictions. people can come in to the u. k. in the way they used to work. and last but not least, the ping demick has been a major factor because people had to stop isolate, so they're out of the labor for labor. 4th, a lot of them have had to stay home and that has contributed for those 5 factors. brand have exacerbated it, kind of like a conundrum of the calendar. right. and i know that there's a lot of moving parts there. now at the same time, we're all looking forward not just for the few months, but especially to the holidays. and we've got supermarkets and producers warning that the supply shortages could last to the holidays and could even really hurt
1:55 am
christmas is their concern there about how the, how long the shortages will last. well actually you're picking right up on the story that's to do with when i mentioned the you workers, a lot of them, the officers that they worked in the meat packing and meat industry and a lot of the pigs. of course this has been effected because they haven't been being able to slaughter them the same way as they used to. and there's this prediction of a sausage shortage will in the u. k. i, we are in england, a lot of people celebrate christmas and forces roles are a big thing at christmas. so it's called like the sausage christmas. you know, issue what i think a lot of the media is made a big issue, but i would say in all seriousness, the semi conductor issue in this, the shortage across the world is the same worldwide. this is affected all the supply chain across the us of the u. s. and the world, and also that was exacerbated by the suez canal blockage. so the prediction i would, i would say, is i would look to i n g, the bank because they're james smith, the chief economist there had said he looks to basically the beginning of 2022.
1:56 am
that thing should eat. so maybe there be some sort of is up to through the holiday season in the u. k. but by early 2022 things should be more back to normal. busy particularly in the supply chain, and that will be the same globally. and it feels like that's something we hear regularly is that these things will kind of work themselves out relatively soon. but the question is, will they really? and i have about 30 thanks for the last one, but data from the bank of england shows that debit or credit card spending has fallen to just 94 percent of pre pandemic levels in recent weeks following freedom day. what do we know about spending in the u. k right now? well, actually, the, the euro, of course, ended in july 11. and up until that there was a massive build up a lot of spending. and i think that decline actually was freedom day, was the 19th of july, and people have gone on vacation. you know, people are not doing what they normally do. they're not spending the same kind of money at home and not celebrating because the euro's was a big bump. and i think a lot of that decline is somewhat people are a little bit sick of this. and i think it's a delta variant to the ping demik really put a damper,
1:57 am
i think on the spirits of the u. k. people want going out to shop. and there were a lot of people who actually, i mean at least what i heard a lot of businesses, people would be ready to buy, but they were ending up. so by selling because about taylor is waiting for me to say something about the euros in england losing, but i'm not going to do it hillary, which if the british american heart association, thank you so much pleasure. and finally, from one shortage to another liquid oxygen is in short supply causing space x to warn their upcoming launch plans could be impacted as a result. the liquid oxygen is an important component not just in the rocket. soaring and outer space, but also in the ventilators used by hospital st and critical cobra. 1900 patients arise in cases prompted the city of orlando to call on residence to limit their water use due to an increase need for liquid oxygen and local hospitals. that resident and c o of space ex said future launches will be impacted. but the company
1:58 am
is keeping hospitals in mind. she added a quote, anybody that has liquid oxygen despair, would you send me an email? as for now, space acts is still set to launch. it's falcon 9 rocket from the kennedy space center in florida before dawn on saturday, as part of a resupply mission to the international space station. and, you know, rachel, it seems like obviously the flight to the international space station is necessary when you to resupply your people kind of do for lack of a better term, out on an island in the middle of the space. but said, hey, does anybody have any liquid oxer despair when it's clearly needed into the health care industry to deal with the influx and patient dealing with cobra, 1900, maybe that might a bit, a little bit off base. and you know, i'm a pretty pro space exploration by the billionaires, but you don't like to see this when they're saying, hey, this is needed supply, we need that to fly to space them layer reality check there. that's it. for this time, you could check boom bus on demand on the horrible tv app available on smartphones, tablets google play in the apple app store by searching portable d be part of both tv can also be downloaded on samsung, smart tv and roku devices,

2:00 am
you need to this end. ah, so join us in the depths will remain in the shallows use when i will show the wrong when all just don't the rules. yes. to fill out this thing because of the attitude and engagement equals the trail. when so many find themselves well, the part we choose to look for common ground in the the u. s. lashes out by the k as a drones strike kills a pair of plant and i've got a song in the 1st reprisals with fuzz days called.
