China’s coronavirus vaccines were supposed to deliver a geopolitical win that showcased the country’s scientific prowess and generosity. Instead, in some places, they have set off a backlash. Officials in Brazil and Turkey have complained that Chinese companies have been slow to ship the doses and ingredients. Disclosures about the Chinese vaccines have been slow and spotty. The few announcements that have trickled out suggest that China’s vaccines, while considered effective, cannot stop the virus as well as those developed by Pfizer and Moderna, the American drugmakers. In the Philippines, some lawmakers have criticized the government’s decision to buy a vaccine made by a Chinese company, Sinovac. Officials in Malaysia and Singapore, which both ordered doses from Sinovac, have had to reassure their citizens that they would approve a vaccine only if it had been proved safe and effective. Sign up for The Morning newsletter from the New York Times “Right now, I would not take any Chinese vaccine because there’s insufficient data,” said Bilahari Kausikan, an influential former official at Singapore’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs. He added that he would consider it only with “a proper report.” At least 24 countries, most of them low and middle income, signed deals with the Chinese vaccine companies because they offered access when richer nations had claimed most of the doses made by Pfizer and Moderna. But the delays in getting the Chinese vaccines and the fact that the vaccines are less effective mean that those countries may take longer to vanquish the virus. Beijing officials who had hoped the vaccines would burnish China’s global reputation are now on the defensive. State media has started a misinformation campaign against the American vaccines, questioning the safety of the Pfizer and Moderna shots and promoting the Chinese vaccines as a better alternative. It has also distributed online videos that have been shared by the anti-vaccine movement in the United States. Liu Xin, an anchor with CGTN, the state broadcaster, asked on Twitter why the foreign media has failed to “follow up” on the deaths of people in Germany who had taken one vaccine — though scientists have said the people were already seriously ill. Liu’s tweet was shared by Zhao Lijian, a top spokesman at China’s Foreign Ministry. George Gao, head of the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention, has questioned the safety of the American vaccines because their developers used new techniques rather than the traditional method embraced by Chinese makers. China had hoped its vaccines would prove it had become a scientific and diplomatic powerhouse. It remains on par with the United States in the number of vaccines approved for emergency use or in late-stage trials. Sinopharm, a state-owned vaccine-maker, and Sinovac have said they can produce up to a combined 2 billion doses this year, making them essential to the global fight against the coronavirus. Unlike the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines, their doses can be kept at refrigerated temperatures and are more easily transported, making them appealing to the developing world. They have been doled out as aid to countries like Pakistan and the Philippines. China’s campaign has been plagued with doubts, however. Many people have memories of the country’s vaccine scandals. Several governments remain angry about Beijing’s lack of openness about the virus in the early days of the pandemic. Its efforts at the start of last year to distribute masks and protective equipment to the West came under fire amid reports of shoddy quality and the demands by Chinese officials for public thanks. A YouGov survey this month of roughly 19,000 people in 17 countries and regions showed that most were distrustful of a COVID-19 vaccine made in China. The misinformation campaign surrounding Western vaccines could further undermine its image. The delays in shipments to places like Brazil and Turkey have been the latest hitch. In Turkey, the government initially promised that 10 million doses of the Sinovac vaccine would arrive in December. Only 3 million did in early January, according to Fahrettin Koca, Turkey’s health minister. He did not explain the reason for the shortfall, which has been criticized by opposition politicians. The remaining doses finally arrived Monday, according to Anadolu, Turkey’s state-run news agency. In a statement, China’s Foreign Ministry cited its needs at home, where the coronavirus has reemerged. “Currently, China’s domestic vaccine demand is huge,” it said. “While meeting domestic demand, we are overcoming difficulties, thinking and trying ways to develop international vaccine cooperation with other countries, especially developing countries in different ways, and providing support and assistance according to their needs and within our capacity.” The sporadic outbreaks could also hinder production. Sinovac, which declined to comment, said Friday online that it was looking for workers for a Beijing-area facility where an outbreak had frightened off potential employees. Countries like Turkey and Brazil are rolling out their immunization programs with a Sinovac vaccine because Western companies cannot deliver as quickly. But Brazil’s efforts have been delayed as well. Eduardo Pazuello, the country’s health minister, said China was not acting fast enough with the documents needed to export raw materials to Brazil. “We are making strong moves at the diplomatic level to find where that resistance is and solve the problem,” Pazuello said at a news conference Jan. 17. On Wednesday, Rodrigo Maia, Brazil’s speaker of the house, told reporters that he had met the Chinese ambassador to Brazil, who “made it clear that there is no political obstacle, that it was a technical process that was delayed a little.” Other vaccines are beginning to fill the gap. Brazil’s Health Ministry announced Thursday that a previously delayed shipment of 2 million doses of the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine would arrive the next day from India. The world was also caught off guard by the disclosure that the Sinovac vaccine may not be as effective as previously thought. Earlier, officials in Turkey said trials there showed the vaccine had a 91% efficacy rate. In Indonesia, it was 68%. In Brazil, researchers initially said its efficacy was 78%. Then, Jan. 12, scientists said it had an efficacy rate of just over 50%, once people who experienced mild symptoms were included. That level is a hair above the threshold set by the World Health Organization to consider a vaccine effective. In a news conference last week, Sinovac’s chief executive officer, Yin Weidong, reiterated that the vaccine was 100% effective in preventing severe cases. He said the lower efficacy rate was a result of the trial's focus on health care workers, who had a higher propensity of contracting COVID-19 than the general population. Jair Bolsonaro, Brazil’s president and a critic of both China and its COVID-19 vaccines, pounced on the data. On Jan. 13, he mocked the vaccine’s efficacy rate, asking a supporter: “Is that 50% good?” To be sure, the Chinese vaccines have a big appeal to many countries. More than 40 countries have expressed an interest in importing Chinese vaccines, according to China’s Foreign Ministry. Several world leaders, including President Reccep Tayyip Erdogan of Turkey and President Joko Widodo of Indonesia, have gotten a Sinovac vaccine. But the spotty and inconsistent disclosures about the vaccines remain a problem. Sinopharm, has said a vaccine candidate made by its Beijing Institute of Biological Products arm has an efficacy rate of 79%, but it did not disclose crucial details. Sinopharm didn’t respond to a request for comment. In Hong Kong, a special administration region of China that has ordered 7.5 million doses of the Sinovac vaccine, officials have not received an application for emergency distribution nor any data from the Chinese company. “Whether it is because they are not making enough or if they have no plans to send the vaccines to Hong Kong yet, I don’t know,” said Dr. Lau Chak Sing, who heads a Hong Kong government advisory panel on COVID-19 vaccines. Data disclosure has also been an issue in the Philippines, which has secured 25 million Sinovac vaccine doses. Risa Hontiveros, an opposition lawmaker, said President Rodrigo Duterte’s administration “continues to cram their preference for Chinese-made vaccines down the public’s throat, without emergency use approval and with inconsistent data.” Leila de Lima, a senator and opposition leader who is in prison, expressed anger that the government was paying $61 a dose, more than double what Sinovac’s partner in Indonesia is paying. The presidential palace said that price was overstated but it couldn’t divulge the real ones because of a confidentiality agreement. Despite the uncertainty, many people may have little choice. “I’ll have my jab,” said Kayihan Pala, a member of the Turkey Medical Association’s COVID-19 monitoring board. “I am waiting my turn, because there is no other option.” This article originally appeared in The New York Times. © 2021 The New York Times Company

With that said, it contains hundreds if not thousands of useful material that can be extremely beneficial for individuals' wellbeing and their quality of life. With such a meaty introduction to the book, let us now dive into the specifics of this book. We will try to understand why you, out of all people, should have one copy of The Lost Book of Herbal Remedies book with you at all times. One may pinpoint this as a practical survival guide that aims to develop the foraging skill that we once had when we were simpler people before modern medicine. Humans survived the ages without modern medicine, and it is because of these herbal remedies that this book contains that they successfully evolved to what we are right now. Must Read & Watch: Top doctors are stunned on how the herbs from this book may help you! Learn more by clicking here =>> The Lost Book of Herbal Remedies can be taken as a historical account. It was called a “lost book” because this kind of knowledge has been lost over time as modern technology outpaced the much more straightforward methods of the yesteryears. This herbal remedies book will educate, inform, and teach you of every possible herbal remedy that you may otherwise have missed out on as you made your daily trip down the road or your backyard. Let us take a closer look at this highly informative book and see what benefits and downsides it can give us in the long run. Here is the most complete, comprehensive, and investigative latest review of The Lost Book of Herbal Remedies, written by a top-of-the-line bookworm himself. What is The Lost Book of Herbal Remedies? The Lost Book of Herbal Remedies is a book that contains 318 pages from front cover to back. It has pictures of 181 healing plants, mushrooms, and lichens found in North America's wilderness. You can also discover 550 all-natural, powerful remedies that you can use for either survival or everyday needs. All in all, it is a jam-packed book that’s filled with excellent information about practical life. This book was initially intended for people who do not know about herbal remedies, harnessing their natural, hidden foraging and plant identification abilities to educate people about these things that are just lying around us in the background. The Lost Book of Herbal Remedies is aptly named like that because the information enclosed in it has been lost through time as it was eclipsed by the rapid advances of modern science and medicine per se. Thus, this book's main objective is to re-educate its readers in the traditional healing and rejuvenation way. As a teaser, it contains a simple step-by-step guide of everything related to herbal remedies in general. Watch: Discover The Forgotten Power of Plants with Nicole Apelian It was initially published in 2018, and its author is Dr. Nicole Apelian, an herbalist, scientist, biologist, anthropologist, researcher, survival TV celebrity, traditional skills instructor, and survival skills consultant. She has at least 20 years of experience in the field of botany. It is without saying that Dr. Apelian is an accomplished woman who is highly credible in herbal remedies. Meanwhile, the editor of this book is Claude Davis, Sr., a Wild West expert. The Lost Book of Herbal Remedies is a colored paperback book, which means that you will see images in full color and detail to learn quickly through visual means. According to the latest reviews, 95% of people who have this book gave a positive review about it, making it one of the best books known to humanity. As per the physical description, it’s a reasonably large dark green book with the title “The Lost Book of Herbal Remedies” and subtitle of “The Healing Power of Plant Medicine.” Written are Apelian and Davis's names, and in the center lies an image of a plant that we can assume to be medicinal. It looks more like an encyclopedia and functions as such. The Lost Book of Herbal Remedies Official Website The Lost Book of Herbal Remedies has an official website. Here is the Lost Book of Herbal Remedies official website as listed below: ==> Visit the Official Webpage The above link can lead you to The Lost Book of Herbal Remedies' official website. It is for people who have doubts about Dr. Apelian and her work. To not sound biased, you can deduce that she is credible enough simply because she has already come out on TV because of her line of work. Apelian already came out in a TV series in History Channel’s Alone where you must survive for 57 days without anything but just your knife and your surroundings. The video version can tell you much about the product, but if you want to breeze through the details, you can always try the official website's text version. It also helps to make this version of the website just read without going through these notorious unskippable videos. The Lost Book of Herbal Remedies official website looks like any other supplement website, but this is because their retailer is ClickBank, which is coincidentally also a retailer of several other available supplements in the market. As a parting word, a disclaimer is said at the bottom of the website that states: “some names and places that appear in the video have been changed to protect the identity of the persons involved.” Even though this is the case, it doesn’t change the fact that Dr. Apelian is credible in her own right. What Does The Lost Book of Herbal Remedies Do? The Lost Book of Herbal Remedies does a lot for the advancement of the human race. I know that sounds overdramatic, but it’s true. You may be asking me, how does it advance the human race when all it did was restore ancient knowledge? That’s called going back. Sometimes, and this is good life wisdom, we must go back to our roots to advance ourselves onwards truly. Sometimes we tend to overthink and be not contented with things that we already have. The answers already lie in our hands, but we think there’s a better way. This was how our brothers and sisters in the field of science thought when they started exploring alternatives such as synthetically-made drugs. We already knew, so why not just cultivate it to stay natural by any means? Thus, The Lost Book of Herbal Remedies is an essential tool in re-educating the public of the wonders of herbal effects and identifying what’s edible and not edible. The modern lifestyle has made the human race less of a hunter-gatherer, and thus most of us can’t even start a fire or survive out in the wilderness for just a few days. Our dependence on science is so great that people forget how we existed. Besides that central point, though, The Lost Book of Herbal Remedies can make your life easier. It makes us more comfortable and healthy. People back then sustained themselves in herbal sustenance, and it has made them experience lengthier lives. Indeed, people back then lived longer than usual, and these herbs were the reason why. An all-natural lifestyle too brings about better lives in general. If you want to experience a better version of yourself who feels healthy, wise, and rejuvenates all the time, I will indulge you in getting this book to grasp a better knowledge of the world around you. After all, your home is not your only world – it’s the great outdoors! How Does The Lost Book of Herbal Remedies May Help You? The Lost Book of Herbal Remedies can help you more in general. Your health status will be supported, let alone rescued from several synthetic substances that modern mainstream media is currently bombarding us with. It can help you alleviate the side effects of drugs that you take daily. This is because The Lost Book of Remedies will teach you all the fundamental things that you need to do for a more prosperous and fruitful life in general. It can also help you teach others. By reading this book, you gain knowledge that was otherwise lost in time thanks to the Europeans who ransacked the Native American culture. Sadly, the Native Americans were trampled below their feet along with their wisdom, but that could change today. With this book, not only will you feel empowered by your newfound knowledge, but you will also be the instrument from which other people will know this precious information that was lost in time. Additionally, this book can help you expand your knowledge of the great outdoors. People are increasingly spending their time indoors, so they don’t have the luxury of exploring the outdoors because of the degree of busyness that people have daily. Thus, you’ll get to know that the current medicine we have had been derived from the plants and compounds that these plants had. Did you know that there are antipyretic plants that can lower fever, anesthetic plants that can numb the pain, antiseptic plants that can sterilize your wounds, and other kinds of suitable plants for a specific role? Learn more by taking hold of this book now. There more ways that this book can help you out. It is an excellent read, plus it’s easy to understand thanks to all the pictures. It reminded me of all those visual encyclopedias I had when I was a child. All those visuals are an excellent way for you not to misidentify plants. Misidentification is fatal, so we must take note of all the details first before deeming one plant to be edible or not. The Lost Book of Herbal Remedies may have the word “lost” in it, but it certainly helps lost souls return to their innate human nature of helping and caring for others and the environment. Who Is The Author of The Lost Book of Herbal Remedies? As mentioned previously, the author of The Lost Book of Herbal Remedies is Doctor Nicole Apelian. She is many things, but above all, she is a certified, experienced botanist and herbalist for 20 years now. She can identify plants, forage them, and educate people about their effects and side effects, if any. In short, she is an educator scientist at the very core. However, if you would ask who made The Lost Book of Herbal Remedies book, it would be none other than her grandfather. While the name was not openly specified (allegedly for security and identity protection purposes), she said that a Native American adopted her grandfather early on in his life. This let her grandfather possess skills that a pre-modern human had – the gift of hunting and gathering. Such is the knowledge-base of Native Americans that Europeans learned a thing or two from them. It was also this adoption that leads her grandfather to learn all about the herbs in the surrounding. True enough, he knew enough, and he wrote down everything that he knew in a journal. Now, this journal was with him ever since he was young. He wrote every herb description in it, drew every herb in it, and ultimately wrote down all remedies that he knew could be done from those herbs at the time. These herbal remedies range from anti-inflammatory ones to antiseptic ones. There are even antipyretic and anesthetic properties in some herbs that are commonly found in our backyard! Her grandfather’s experience was plentiful, and he was also a veteran of the Second World War. Even though he wasn’t a medic, he knew how to help his brother-in-arms in times of injuries and dire need during the war. This particular anesthetic property of a common weed known as the Wild Lettuce was so useful that soldiers in his platoon made use of it when they were running out of morphine. This is only one of the fine examples. He lived a long and fruitful life, educating people alongside his granddaughter Nicole. He eventually passed away last 2001. This prompted Nicole to take his journal and rewrite it by herself. She typed in every entry it had and had all the illustrations drawn by an artist to emphasize her grandfather’s journal's visual aspect. By 2018, she had it published in the hopes that it would help other people in their quest towards natural and healthy living. Thus, The Lost Book of Herbal Remedies isn’t just a book by itself. It contains one person's life, and by essence, it was passed down to younger generations so that more people would learn of this lost knowledge that was so common back then before the industrial era. What Does The Lost Book of Herbal Remedies Contain? The Lost Book of Herbal Remedies contains many kinds of entries, all suited to educate the public about the wonders of nature’s healing properties. It includes hundreds of entries of medicinal herbs, remedies, and techniques that you can use in everyday life. Overall, at least more than 800 things you can learn about herbal remedies from this book alone. It is quite large if you hold it the physical version. Considering it has 318 pages of pure information, you’re in for the educational ride of your life. Let’s start with the namesake of the book itself. The book contains several herbal remedies. There are herbal remedies that can help cure wounds, severe bacterial infections and reduce plaque in your blood vessels. These are only a few examples of it, but you get the gist of the book. It contains practical information that you can use for future reference. Whether it’s to impress your crush or save a person’s life, you got it all here in this book. Also, you’ll be enlightened on the number of plants in your backyard that can be used for medicinal or food purposes. The weeds that you take out actually may contain potent compounds that, when ingested, can bring about beautiful results. What’s great about having a book is that you won’t have to guess how. Sure, you can identify it, but how will you transform it into herbal medication? This book has that kind of teaching and will even guide you step-by-step with instructions. It’s pretty cool. Besides that, you will be taught survival skills. That would be plant identification and bandaging. What does bandaging have to do with all this? Well, Apalian’s grandfather was taught how to make a “poultice” or a modified bandage with herbs inside it. It’s beneficial since it puts the herbs right on top of the injury. While we’re at it, you’ll also get to learn how to identify plants. This means you’ll be able to differentiate between what’s edible and not. You can even pinpoint which parts of it are medicinal or not. The book features lots of images of these herbs, so take a closer look at each one of them to master the art of plant identification. Lastly, you’ll find different techniques that cannot be learned elsewhere (except if you’re Native American). These “remedy techniques” actually prove useful as you can use certain herbs and modern-day stuff to alleviate some illnesses that you have right now. The Lost Book of Herbal Remedies is a book full of information and guides. It can be your partner for everyday life, and it comes in either digitized or printed copies. The plus side is, you can choose what you want. Isn’t that amazing? If I recommended anything for you guys, it would be to read this book right now. Nothing will be lost for you. Your knowledge (and hopefully, wisdom) will increase when you read this book. How Does The Lost Book of Herbal Remedies Work? Just like any other book, it works by reading through it. The step-by-step process of remedies listed down in the book is sure enough to teach even the most stubborn minds. It works since it’s a century’s worth of knowledge, and it can also work on you since humans haven’t changed throughout the past few years. Read on and follow the steps, and you won’t be lead astray by this beautiful reading material. If you read it from front to back at an average pace a modern human reads, you can read the book 11 hours straight if needed. This is a lot of reading time, indeed, but we need to consider the weight of information stored inside this book as a whole. It has tons of useful information. Of course, I’m not saying you should sit and read it for 11 hours straight, but if you dare so and is an avid bookworm like me, you can. In that sense, having 11 hours of reading time for a lifetime of knowledge and opportunities is not a waste. It is a good trade-off and can ultimately be the best thing you have done in a very long time. The Pros and Cons of The Lost Book of Herbal Remedies The Lost Book of Herbal Remedies has a lot of things going for it. This book is highly optimistic in its own right and can be used as a benchmark for future books sold in the market. The credibility it establishes is supreme, and the primary objective of this book certainly places it above all else. With that said, let us take a look at the pros and cons of The Lost Book of Herbal Remedies. The Lost Book of Herbal Remedies pros are: Flexible options – can be a physical book or a digital e-book at the same timeExtremely inexpensive and affordableHas a money-back guarantee, given that the reason is perfectly validContains useful information that can be used for daily, practical lifeIt can be used as a survival guideIt helps you live a healthier lifeWritten by an extremely credible author The Lost Book of Herbal Remedies cons are: It can only be bought online through their official website. Any other source of this book (such as Amazon) is considered illegitimate and fakeGenerally focused on North American herbal remedies As we can see, The Lost Book of Herbal Remedies is a precious book to have. Not only does it help people with their life, but it also serves as a guide for future generations to come. It restores our innate skills of foraging and can be used to develop our quality of life further. This book is highly recommended by everyone who wishes to live out a healthier life or break away from the side effects of synthesized medicine as brought upon by modern science. The natural herbal remedies in this book are of a staggering amount and can indeed cover everything if you live in North America. Now that’s mentioned, the downsides of this book are minuscule at best. For one, this book can be only legitimately bought from the official website only. The book also focuses more on the North American flora, which means it can discriminate against other herbal remedies found in different continents. There is a reasonable possibility that the plants mentioned in this book have already migrated to other countries. This is because the book originated from Native American teachings, which came from way before the Europeans started colonizing the land. Thus, this book can be more effective when given to the North American audience than the others. Still, it can be of great help for any aspiring botanist or individual who wants to make his/her life better by the second. The Lost Book of Herbal Remedies Reading Benefits The Lost Book of Herbal Remedies benefits are many. The added knowledge you’ll get is just the tip of the iceberg. The real benefit that you’ll get from this book is that you can become wiser about the surroundings and bring about better consciousness for the environment in general. What’s more, one of the real benefits of this book is the benefit of educating others. The general public doesn’t know much about these natural remedies, and as such, you can help them out so that they would help others in return. Learn More About The Herbs Benefits from this Book from The Official Webpage Here =>> Lastly, the most significant benefit you can gain from this book is the benefit of saving lives. That is unparalleled above all things. It also feels good that you get to save lives rather than become helpless by being unprepared. Being resourceful is one of the greatest traits of a person, and with that, you can amaze and save lives whenever needed and necessary. The Lost Book of Herbal Remedies Downsides The downside of The Lost Book of Herbal Remedies is virtually nothing, besides the fact that the herbal database is mostly based in North America. You’re lucky if you find the herbs identified in the book growing in your backyard in, let us say, Asia. Still, that’s a massive possibility since humans have long since been responsible for bringing invasive populations to other parts of the world (something that we shouldn’t be proud of since it destroys the ecosystem). I’m not saying this book does not contain herbs from other continents. It’s just the majority is from North America. You can also find African herbs here, thanks to Dr. Apalian’s trip to the tribes in that continent. Studies and Their Links to The Lost Book of Herbal Remedies The herbal remedies found in the book are adequately referenced as needed. We need to remember that this book was made by a person who has a doctorate in botany. As such, she can reference it to proper links when necessary. She is also credible on her own. How Much Does The Lost Book of Herbal Remedies Cost? The Lost Book of Herbal Remedies only cost $37. That’s it. It’s a fixed price. Whether you’re only getting a digital copy or a physical copy, that is the set price. However, if you’re going to get a physical copy as well, there’s an additional $8.99 shipping and handling fee involved. Still, this is relatively inexpensive for something precious. Here’s a catch too! You’ll get two (2) free books for every purchase of The Lost Book of Herbal Remedies.

Disney Parks just announced that another fan-favorite attraction will be undergoing a partial redesign because of problematic and racist depictions of certain indigenous cultures. In a January 25 post to the Disney Parks Blog, fans were told that the Jungle Cruise ride at both Disney World and Disneyland will be updated to "include new adventures that stay true to the experience we know and love—more humor, wildlife and skipper heart—and also reflect and value the diversity of the world around us." For what to expect from these changes, read on. And for more of the company reckoning with past missteps, check out Disney Admits These Movies Have Had a "Harmful Impact" With New Warning. The Jungle Cruise ride has been around since the '50s. The Jungle Cruise attraction made its Disneyland debut in 1955 and then opened in Disney World in 1971. Located in Adventureland, it's a river boat ride enhanced by animatronic displays and a humorous live commentary by the boat's "skipper." The scenes that guests are treated to in their journey, which is designed to mimic waterways in South America, Africa, and Asia, include depictions of native people that have been called racist. There are also Jungle Cruise rides in Tokyo Disneyland and Hong Kong Disneyland, but the company has yet to announce any changes to those park attractions. For more ways in which the parks are looking different lately, Here's What Disney World's Reopening Looked Like Amid Coronavirus. Disney is acknowledging that some imagery on the current version of the ride is harmful. In light of the announcement, the D23 blog interviewed Chris Beatty, Walt Disney Imagineering Creative Portfolio Executive, who was clear about the elements of the Jungle Cruise that need a more sensitive rehaul."We want to make sure everybody has the best time—that guests from all over the world can connect with the stories we share and that how we bring those to life are respectful of the diverse world we live in. And when they get off the attraction, they know that we have done our homework because these are the details that matter. When you look at the Jungle Cruise, as it is today, there are just a couple of scenes that don't do that and needed a refresh," he said. Speaking to specifics, Beatty also added that the design will be "addressing the negative depictions of 'natives.'" No completion date has been announced, but they're hoping to have the new versions open to the public within 2021. For more Disney history that needs to be reckoned with, here are 10 Disney Classics That Have Been Called Out for Racism. So what will the updated Jungle Cruise look like? The Disney Parks blog post included an announcement video hosted by a current Imagineer and former Jungle Cruise skipper, Kevin Lively. He previewed the new Jungle Cruise, saying, "As part of this story update, we'll get to follow a skipper and his passengers as their journey goes awry. That's right, for the first time ever, the skipper role will not only be that of a live, experienced and witty guide, but also represented by a show figure within the attraction itself. In fact, the expedition will be up a tree after their sunken boat splits apart and chimps board the wreckage, with monkey business ensuing." He goes on to say that a few retired Jungle Cruise boats will find new life within the updated story.

Don't expect to see characters from the Jungle Cruise movie in the new version of the ride, however. Disney fans may be wondering whether part of the reason the ride is getting its makeover this year is because the feature adaptation of the attraction, also called Jungle Cruise, is currently scheduled to be released in June. But Beatty told D23 that the ride won't be taking its cues from the upcoming Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt movie.He clarified that "these adjustments are really focused on enhancing the existing attraction storyline and addressing some areas that needed refreshing along the way. I'm sure the film is fantastic and we're very excited about it, but integrating the film into our classic Jungle Cruise is not part of this effort."However, Beatty did pretty much promise that the reimagined ride will include Easter eggs from the film, so you'll want to keep your eyes peeled the next time you board one of its steamers.

This announcement comes a few months after another Disney ride underwent major changes. For years, fans have wondered why the iconic ride Splash Mountain still included characters from the 1946 Disney film, Song of the South, which is built around such racist material that it's not even available to stream or buy. In June of last year, it was announced that Splash Mountain would be re-themed around the 2009 film, The Princess and the Frog, which features Tiana, the first Black Disney princess.

(Bloomberg) -- Fears unleashed by the once-in-a-century pandemic are clinging onto volatility markets even as stocks boom to record highs and Wall Street speculators gorge on every risk.For all the euphoria in markets, the Cboe Volatility Index has stayed elevated in an historic divergence between this gauge of investor fear and rallying equities. The VIX hasn’t closed below 20 since February last year. Its current level of 23 is some six points above the decade average.As Dean Curnutt at Macro Risk Advisors puts it, the VIX is “on an island of its own.” And there are no easy explanations.As the market rotation reduces correlations and increases risk appetite, Wall Street strategists have long expected a spirited drop in the gauge, which uses the options market to measure the 30-day implied volatility of the S&P 500.So here are four theories on why things are not so simple in volatility land.The AftershocksFirst and foremost: Past is prologue. Historically, volatility shocks like the Covid-spurred mayhem in March have taken time to run their course. After all, implied volatility largely reflects what’s recently happened in markets. In the wake of the global financial crisis, it took some 15 months for the measure to normalize.Yet it’s been just 10 months since the stock wipeout that sent the VIX soaring to a record.Given precedent, it could be several months before the fear gauge settles at a more subdued level especially in light of the extended collapse in the global investment and consumption cycle.“The VIX dropped off more quickly than usual but now has entered a slower decline,” said Vance Harwood of Six Figure Investing, a consultancy specializing in volatility. “We are just seeing the normal after-effects of a market crash.”Add delays to vaccine roll-outs, and there are good reasons why it’s a long journey back to a pre-pandemic normal of sorts.Blame TechPerhaps something else is at work too. Hedge fund Man Group, for one, blames the increasingly large weighting of technology in the S&P 500 Index.Tech shares are now approaching a 30% weighting in the U.S. stock benchmark, up from around 20% five years ago, according to Man. Over the past year, investors have piled into these names as part of the stay-at-home trade, leading to sharp sell-offs when sentiment reverses.When a volatile sector comes to dominate the benchmark, “we get more instances of simultaneous increases in equity markets and volatility, notably during the tech bubble of the late 1990s,” strategists at the firm wrote in a note. “Indeed, we see a similar make-up of the S&P 500 today.”No wonder stocks have risen along with implied volatility lately -- bucking the historic norm.In Man’s view, a “gentle rebalancing” of the equity market leaderboard at the expense of the tech sector would spur a fall in the VIX. Otherwise, brace for higher implied volatility for longer.Call FeverThe explosion of call-option buying has also become an undeniable force in markets, with some blaming it for pushing around the underlying stocks. A more direct impact has been to raise the level of equity volatility overall.Spurred by speculative retail fever, the smallest options traders are making record bullish bets, with volumes running 20% higher than last summer, according to Sundial Capital Research. In the latest frenzy, a record 1 million GameStop Corp. call options were purchased on Friday, followed by another 500,000 contracts on Monday.Dealers who have sold these calls may buy index implied volatility to hedge themselves -- adding upward pressure on the VIX.Something like this was at work back in August and September, when stocks and volatility moved in tandem.Read More: Playing With Volatility? Get to Know ‘The Greeks’: QuickTakeSince the VIX is calculated using prices of both puts and calls, when prices rise sharply for the latter, it can push up the index in the same way hedging demand can.In short, demand for both single-name and index calls may be driving the VIX higher in what’s become more an expression of greed than the traditional signal of fear.“There’s been a lot of call buying, not just on the index but on single stocks,” said Michael Purves, a strategist and founder of Tallbacken Capital Advisors. “And that has been one of the reasons why the VIX has been elevated.”Shortage of ShortsImplied volatility moves on options supply and demand, and since last year’s Covid crash a reliable source of the former has gone missing from markets.Prior to March 2020, institutional investors sold options en masse as a way to generate income in a low-yield world to take advantage of the volatility risk premium, or the tendency of traders to demand higher compensation for future uncertainty compared with what actually comes to pass.After many of these players bailed on that trade, there’s less selling pressure. And that means the elevated fear gauge has a lot to do with market technicals and less about the pandemic-driven business cycle.“A lot of short-volatility guys got destroyed in March,” said Purves. “People are still very nervous to sell it.”(Updates with details of options trades under Call Fever.)For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2021 Bloomberg L.P.
