LOS ANGELES (AP) — Marc Maron blazed the podcast industry trail attracting millions of listeners with his candid interviews of prominent figures such as Robin Williams, Eddie Murphy and President Barack Obama. Now, Maron’s long-running podcast “ WTF with Marc Maron ” will receive the inaugural Governors Award at the Podcast Academy’s first-ever Ambies awards, which will be streamed Sunday on YouTube and Twitch from Los Angeles. The award recognizes a podcast or individual for their impact on the industry. “I generally don’t win awards,” said Maron who was accompanied in a recent interview with Brendan McDonald, the co-creator and executive producer of “WTF.” Maron and McDonald will both accept the award during the ceremony. “I like that they had to invent a new award for the medium that we succeeded in, in order for me to get an award,” said Maron, the comedian-actor who starred on the Netflix series “GLOW." “It feels like we deserve it and it feels like we earned it. And it is sort of amazing that we entered this with very little expectations.” “WTF" was launched from Maron’s garage at his Los Angeles home 12 years ago. At the time, Maron was a struggling stand-up comedian, while McDonald was working two media jobs. McDonald said the podcast provided an entry for them to create their own content without any concern of being fired. “We like working together, we like making things together,” said McDonald, who manages the business aspects of the podcast and serves as the show’s sole producer and editor. He also produces podcasts for MSNBC. “But everywhere we’ve done it, it’s been compromised,” he said, noting they approached “WTF” with a different mindset. "We were never thinking, ‘Let’s do this in a way to make oodles of money.’” The twice-a-week podcast began with intimate conversations between Maron and fellow comedians about the highs-and-lows of their craft. Some of the most early memorable interviews included Todd Glass and Dane Cook. Ultimately, “WTF” blossomed in popularity, drawing much bigger names — from Obama to David Letterman — into his cramped garage for humorous and sometimes therapeutic dialogue. (He moved the show to a more spacious garage a few years ago.) The show has had more than 1,200 guests including Chris Rock, Nicole Kidman, Jennifer Lawrence, Jerry Seinfeld, Bruce Springsteen and Kate Winslet. Maron said major media outlets would report their news-making interviews, which helped with the rise of the independently-produced podcast. Since its launch, “WTF” has been downloaded 600 million times. Some of Maron’s favorite moments include his recent chat with the sweatpants-wearing Jodie Foster, Paul Thomas Anderson opening up and Sean Penn, who made a joke about Nick Nolte. McDonald said he and Maron didn’t expect the show to achieve so much success and longevity. He initially had a brief panic at the beginning of the pandemic last year, when there was a drop in audience numbers for their show and the rest of the industry. But once the “little blip” ended, McDonald said their show endured then picked up steam. Maron said the “pandemic interviews” provided an opportunity for him to hold insightful conversations, allowing celebs to feel comfortable enough to talk openly from the confines of their homes. “I think they wanted to talk to people, they weren’t being managed as heavily and they weren’t like traveling around on a junket or stressed out or guarded," he said. "They were kind of excited to sort of, you know, talk and relax. And they’re in their own house, so they don’t have to drive anywhere. So there’s definitely a tone to some of the pandemic interviews that I don’t think could have happened in person or happened at any other time, given some of the talent we got.” Maron believes the proven track record of “WTF” should have earned them more praise by other awards, but he appreciates the Ambies for making a concerted effort to create the podcast industry’s version of the Oscars and Emmys. “We should have got a Peabody (Award) a long time ago,” Maron said. “I didn’t want anything else, but you know, whatever. Now that we have our own award, and we’re getting the big one, to me it’s like the Peabodys can go (explicit) themselves.” Jonathan Landrum Jr., The Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) — U.S. industrial production increased for a second straight month in April as more factories came online after being shutdown by winter ice storms. Industrial production — which includes output at factories, mines and utilities — rose 0.7% last month, down from a sharp increase of 2.4% in March, the Federal Reserve reported Friday. The March gain, however, was revised sharply higher from an initial estimate of a 1.4% rise. Manufacturing output climbed 0.4%, down from a strong 3.1% in March that was also revised higher. Strong consumer demand from Americans flush with cash after a series of stimulus checks is encouraging more output, but shortages of semiconductors and raw materials such as copper are pushing in the other direction and holding it back. Auto production fell 4.3% in April, largely because car makers can't find enough semiconductors. But the output of computers, electrical equipment and appliances, machinery, and metals such as steel all increased. “Recovery in industrial output, especially manufacturing, is ongoing and is likely to remain supported by still-strong demand for goods,” said Rubeela Farooqi, chief economist at High Frequency Economics. “But supply chain bottlenecks are an ongoing headwind in the near term.” Utility production climbed 2.6%, after a sharp drop in March. And mines lifted production 0.7% last month. The U.S. economy is expanding at a healthy clip as consumers become more confident and states and cities relax restrictions on businesses. Growth was 6.4% at an annual rate in the first three months of the year and economists forecast the expansion could accelerate to a double-digit pace in the April-June quarter. Still, there are signs that Americans are switching some of their spending away from goods to services, as restaurants, movies, and other entertainment venues open up. Retail sales for April were flat, according to a separate report Friday, though sales at restaurants and bars rose 3%. Christopher Rugaber, The Associated Press
JERUSALEM (AP) — The Latest on the stepped-up fighting between Israel and militant Hamas rulers (all times local): ISTANBUL — Hundreds of Muslims in Turkey have rallied, urging Palestinians to “continue resistance” against Israel. They shouted support for militant Hamas leaders on Friday at a symbolic funeral prayer for Palestinians killed in the spate of violence this week between Israel and the Gaza Strip. About 300 Muslims at the event hollered slogans in Turkish, including “Greetings to Hamas, continue resistance.” They called on Turkish soldiers to go to Gaza to help fight Israel and sang of the domed mosque in contested Jerusalem: “Al-Aqsa will be saved if blood flows in streams.” Some also waved Palestinian flags and chanted slogans in Arabic. People in Turkey have been demonstrating against Israel this week, gathering without much interference from the police despite a strict lockdown to curb COVID-19 infections. ___ JERUSALEM — Israeli defense forces have fired warning shots toward a group of protesters who crossed from Lebanon as part of a rally against the Israeli campaign in Gaza. The army said some two dozen Palestinian and Lebanese youth had gathered at the border gate separating the two countries for a protest on Friday. A few of those involved crossed the border into Israel. The Israeli army says the group sabotaged the fence and set a fire in the area before returning to Lebanese territory. Al-Manar TV station, owned by Lebanon’s militant Hezbollah group, said one Lebanese person was wounded in the incident. The report could not be immediately confirmed. The Lebanese military had no comment. ___ JERUSALEM — Israel’s army says a soldier has shot and killed a Palestinian who tried to ram his car into a military post in the occupied West Bank, then got out and attempted to stab the soldier. The incident took place on Friday north of the city of Ramallah in the occupied West Bank. The Palestinian health ministry confirmed the death, but no other details were immediately available. Rights groups have complained about past shootings of Palestinians by the Israeli military under questionable circumstances. In recent years, Palestinians have carried out a series of stabbings, shootings and car-ramming attacks that have killed or wounded Israeli soldiers and civilians. Military checkpoints in the West Bank are a frequent target. The military, responding to criticism of excessive force against Palestinians, say soldiers must make split-second decisions in life-or-death situations. ___ JERUSALEM — Israeli Justice Minister Benny Gantz has called on the chiefs of big social media platforms to quickly remove content from their sites that incites violence or spreads disinformation. A spokesman for Gantz said he told executives of Facebook and Tik Tok during a Zoom meeting Thursday that the current round of violence is being “intentionally stirred through social media by extremist elements” sworn to damage Israel. Gantz called the current round of fighting, “a moment of social emergency, and we expect your assistance.” The spokesman said the executives expressed their commitment to act quickly and effectively to prevent incitement on their networks. ___ JERUSALEM — The head of Israel’s Shin Bet says the service won’t tolerate ethnic violence “by Arabs nor by Jews” after nightly clashes this week in some of the country’s cities. Chief Nadav Argaman said Friday that Shin Bet “will not allow violent lawbreakers to carry out terrorism on the streets of Israel." He spoke after consecutive nights of apparent revenge attacks by Arab and Jewish mobs in Lod, Jaffa, Haifa and elsewhere inside Israel. Argaman said Shin Bet is working with Israeli police and Border Patrol in those mixed cities. The effort is aimed at identifying, catching and prosecuting “whoever tries to hurt Israeli citizens, Jews and Arabs, until peace returns to the streets of the country.” ___ BERLIN - Chancellor Angela Merkel’s spokesman says Germany won’t tolerate anti-Semitic demonstrations amid tensions in the Middle East. Anti-Israel protests in several cities this week have drawn concern and condemnation, particularly a protest outside a synagogue in Gelsenkirchen. A video showed dozens of protesters waving Palestinian and Turkish flags and yelling expletives about Jews. Merkel spokesman Steffen Seibert said Friday that “anyone who uses such protests to scream their hatred of Jews is abusing the right to demonstrate.” He added that “our democracy will not tolerate anti-Semitic demonstrations.” Seibert said Merkel condemns Hamas' ongoing firing of rockets at Israel and “nothing can justify such terror.” He said the rocket attacks must stop immediately. In neighboring Austria, Chancellor Sebastian Kurz tweeted that the Israeli flag was raised over his office on Friday as a signal of solidarity. —— DHAKA, Bangladesh — Thousands of Muslims led by activists from an Islamic political party have demonstrated in Bangladesh’s capital to denounce attacks by Israel against Palestinians. After the end of Eid al-Fitr prayers at Dhaka’s main Baitul Mokarram Mosque Friday, activists from the Islamic Andolan Bangladesh, or Islamic Movement Bangladesh, began protesting and were joined by thousands of others. Muslim-majority Bangladesh celebrated the key festival in a subdued manner after the government urged people to avoid large gatherings. Authorities arranged prayers in phases at the Baitul Mokarram Mosque, where devotees maintained distancing to avoid spreading the coronavirus. Afterward, protesters crowded together outside, carrying signs reading “Boycott terrorist state Israel” and chanting “Down with Israel.” The current eruption of violence between Israelis and Palestinians began a month ago in contested Jerusalem. The clash surged on Monday into the most severe outburst of hostilities since the 2014 Gaza war. —- GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip — Palestinians living along Gaza's northern and eastern borders are fleeing intense Israeli bombardment. Families toting supplies sought refuge on Friday in temporary shelters in central Gaza City as Israeli artillery pounded northern Gaza in an attempt to destroy a vast network of militant tunnels. The assault brought the front lines closer to dense civilian areas and paved the way for a potential ground invasion. Fleeing families arrived in pickup trucks, on donkeys and by foot at schools run by the United Nations, hauling pillows and pans, blankets and bread. Men lugged large plastic bags and women carried infants on their shoulders, cramming into classrooms. One mother who fled to a downtown school with her children said "nothing remains for us” back home in the northern town of Beit Lahiya. Her son, Othman, said he had felt the family's house “shake up and down,” adding that “everyone was running.” The Associated Press

The Vietnamese retail sector is valued at USD 170 Billion in 2020 and is projected to register CAGR more than 10% during the forecast period, 2021 to 2026. While the Covid-19 crisis remains complicated globally, Vietnam’s effective control of the pandemic has led to recovery of retail sales of consumer goods and services in the final months of the year.New York, May 14, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Reportlinker.com announces the release of the report "Vietnam Retail Sector - Growth, Trends, COVID-19 Impact, and Forecasts (2021 - 2026)" - https://www.reportlinker.com/p06062819/?utm_source=GNW The growth rate, while remaining lower compared to the 12.7% recorded the previous year, was an encouraging sign for the business community amid global retail market suffering plunge in revenue during the pandemic. A high growth rate in retail sales by year-end was due to retailers and shopping malls offering sales promotion programs to stimulate domestic consumption. Vietnam is seeing ongoing urbanisation and evolving demand trends amongst young urban consumers drive strong growth in modern retailing channels such as convenience stores, as well as the rapid expansion of e-commerce. Indeed, the growing influence of such factors can be seen in the emergence of formats such as mini supermarkets, which target demand for grocery shopping that fits into the flow of busy urban lifestyles.Modern retail outlets offer private brands/products that can be exclusively purchased in their stores. One key factor involved in Vietnamese consumers choosing to shop in traditional markets is that they can buy ingredients in smaller portions. Supermarkets are offering products that are better suited for the daily needs of an average consumer. Food products, non-food products, and home appliances are also offered in supermarkets, which makes shopping easier, as they offer everything needed for the customer under one roof. To further improve the shopping experience, some stores have in-house bakeries and cafés where consumers can hang out and enjoy with family or friends. The local population’s inclination to make their purchases in the traditional outlets are hinged owing to factors, such as high availability of these outlets everywhere in the country posing convenience and ease of access for consumers, comparatively lower prices of goods and products (which consumers can still bargain), fresh produce supply source that is better at wet markets, and traditional retailers offering flexible package sizes for day-to-day consumption.Key Market TrendsRapid Growth in Consumer Spending is a Driving FactorVietnam’s disposable income per capita is expected to grow quickly and reach USD 3,062 in 2023 . Vietnam’s total consumer spending is growing at the highest rate in the region ore than 8% a year— rising from USD 118 billion in 2013 to USD 185 billion in 2019. The private-consumption rate also is high, more than 67% of GDP. This is the second highest in the region, behind the Philippines (73.8 %) and ahead of Malaysia and Indonesia (57.0 and 57.3 %, respectively).Low Urbanization with High Potential for GrowthVietnam’s urbanization rate is still low when compared across the region, at 36.63% of the population, compared with rates between 47% and 76 % in other Southeast Asian countries. This represents an area of high potential and expected growth. In fact, the Vietnamese urban population is expected to grow at a CAGR of about 3% up to 2025, while this growth rate is between 1% and 2 % for Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, and Thailand. Analysis of urbanization rates in comparable Southeast Asian countries indicates that the early stage of urbanization is likely to be rapid. Vietnam’s growth follows a similar trajectory, urbanization will reach 55% in 2030.Competitive LandscapeThe report covers major international players operating in the Vietnamese retail market. In terms of market share, few major players currently dominate the market. However, with technological advancement and product innovation, mid-size to smaller companies are increasing their market presence by securing new contracts and tapping new markets.Reasons to Purchase this report:- The market estimate (ME) sheet in Excel format- 3 months of analyst supportRead the full report: https://www.reportlinker.com/p06062819/?utm_source=GNWAbout ReportlinkerReportLinker is an award-winning market research solution.
