Are Xi Jinping and Vladimir Putin in a new superpower bromance?

Are Xi and Putin in a new superpower bromance?

No. No, they're not. They both dislike the West and the United States for different reasons. But China is actually aligned with global stability. They see themselves as increasingly the world's new superpower. The Russians are in decline. They are angry at the United States. They are revisionist and want to break things internationally. Plus they don't really trust each other so over time that relation becomes more challenging.

Will President Trump impose tariffs on Mexico?

Well he says he's going to but the Mexicans are not taking the bait. They're going to do everything possible to try to come up with a deal on immigration. Make Trump feel like they're listening. They get hurt massively if the Americans put tariffs on them much more vulnerable than the Chinese are. Maybe you get the 5 percent. I'd be really stunned if we actually move towards the 25 percent. I think we'll get through this.

Is this the end of Netanyahu?

It's real close. I mean you're now going to have a prime ministerthat has to run again in elections and this time around he's going to be sitting with an indictment on him. He's not going to be able to push that off. He has undermined a lot of his own coalition party members by offering, when he was you know really concerned, cabinet positions for the left even. I think he's burned a lot of bridges. I think it's going to be harder for Netanyahu to do well come September.

Coffee is one of the most popular drinks in the world, but that means it creates a lot of waste in the form of cups and used coffee grinds. Every year, we drink out of 600 billion single-use plastic and paper cups, most of which end up in a landfill or our environment. Could coffee also contribute to a more sustainable future? A German company is now recovering leftover coffee grounds from bars, restaurants and hotels, and it's recycling them into reusable coffee cups. In other words, they're creating cups of coffee made from coffee.

What technology was used to assist Eliud Kipchoge's historic sub two-hour marathon time?

A lot. If you watched the video of him, you saw that he was within a pace group, a whole bunch of runners in front of him cutting the wind. Some runners behind him, actually improving his wind resistance by having people behind him. There was a green laser showing him exactly what time he had to run. He had really high-tech gels that he took, these Maurten gels. I actually like those a lot, too. But the main thing were the shoes. These are the early prototypes of the shoes or the first version. He's now in the third version. But what's most important is there is a carbon fiber plate. You cannot bend this thing. So, Nike introduced these shoes, I don't know, two years ago. Now, there's a new generation. It's very controversial.

Will the Catalonia question be a big issue in the Spanish election coming up in November?

You bet it will. Passions have been further inflamed now, and the question that has been difficult from the very beginning, by the very heavy prison sentences that was given to those that are accused of sedition, that is organizing the independence referendum. So, passions are heating up. It will be a difficult issue for the entire Spanish political system to handle for years to come.

You'd think, being the relatively hopeful person that you are, that the nauseating anguish of Brexit would be more or less over now that UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson has finally reached a deal with Brussels on how to extricate the UK from the European Union.
