Uber gets 18-month London license after winning court appeal
"Quarter uber lost $1.8 billion because of the covert pandemic. I mean, think about it. How often have you called up an uber or a lift? To catch a ride since the pandemic hit. I mean, I know personally, we used these uber and our family quite a bit a couple times a month between the five of us now we probably haven't used it twice. In four or five months. The company is trying Teo, you know, survive and come back and part of that involves expanding and having rideshare all around the world, including London, where Uber was able to get their license back after winning the court challenge and join us on the phone Now to talk about this is Simon Oh, and Fox News correspondent Welcome to the Bobby Smith Show. My morning, Kevin. So sort of walk us through this. What is what has been the history of uber in London? And then where do we stand today? Why's this ruling so important? That is a troubled history. But this is certainly a crucial victory for uber the taxi service that, as you say, spread all over the world in in recent years, But that rapid expansion as bean bumpy at times on DH no less so than here in the British capital on who ended up being stripped of its license to operate here last year. There's bean a Serie of skirmishes with the transport authority before that, on DH Uber was then told last November that that was it. It was being banned for what transport for London said with a pattern of failings, including summit said that puts passengers at risk well. Uber appealed that ruling. Went across it apologize. It was contrite. It accepted there had bean flaws in the past, but it said it had changed, but it has put things right on DH. Now A judge has sided with the company and the magistrate who heard this case. 10 a crime, said that while Uber wass guilty of historic failings, he said, its record Was improving on that he was satisfied that it is now in the words they used fit and proper to hold a license. So whoever is back it is very happy. London today particularly lucrative market it count 3.5 million regular customers here, so those 3.5 million people can continue to use. That the service transport regulator says it will be watching you that very closely. Yes. So you know here in the states, uber had a bumpy start here is well, And the biggest concern, of course, was people safety and there would be a report here and then a report there and and all of a sudden people were very concerned about how safe they were getting in a car with a stranger. But uber seemed to put together quite a lengthy list of Of things that they that they go through to make sure that the rider's air safe the background checks and being able to identify that driver actually is a driver. The biggest problem after they started went through their their safety checks was, you know, making sure customers got in the right car that they were supposed to be getting in more than anything else? I have had They done that in London. Do they have the same safety procedures? Do they? They make sure that they do background checks on all of that on the drivers, and they do checks on the cars. You know, At first, there were there were not Checks on the actual fitness of the automobiles, But they changed that as well. The car's all have to go in and get checked out before somebody can become another driver. Well, I mean, it's certainly change from the kind of it's almost quite loose seeming ride, hailing service that it used to be way you accepted that it was just going to be a stranger, perhaps rolling up in their car, making a few dollars on the side and taking you around now it's very much much more like a taxi company on duty, said that it'd have increased its safety precautions that said that this verdict is a recognition of its commitment to safety and that it will continue to work constructively. With the regulator. But transport for London laid out a series of floors that it that I had identified last year and perhaps the most car racing complaint from the regulator. It's said that there was a florin uber systems that was allowing unauthorized drivers to upload their photos to another drivers accounts essentially borrow the accounts and make some money. For themselves, and so uber had Bean saying, You know, we've got this sorted. We're doing background checks on the drivers. They've overto have accounted their photos on. And then it turned out there was this huge loophole in the system that meant that wasn't really a promise that was worth more than the paper. It was. It was written in because transport for London said that those uninsured rides involving an unauthorized drivers It says that they carried out more than 14,000 rides before uber fixed this floor so pretty kind of damning indictment from the regulator now at the same time Stream, a half million regular customers. That's a lot. That's a significant proportion of London's population. And so I think this is probably quite helpful for the transport regulator and the mayor of London as well because they had officially kicked to browse and got rid of it. Then you would have some Customer to kind of got attached to ever much cheaper than traditional black cabs here. And so this perhaps works for both sides that the Duke said it has tightened up its safety precautions on for the regulator. It's able to keep you were operating and keep happy that the three million Londoners who use it
LVMH Countersues Tiffany Over Merger

What remains is a mis manage business with no end to its problems insight and it just gets worse from there dom now. Alleges there was a material adverse effect here it says that the pandemic created extraordinary damage to tiffany and this is important. There was no carve out in the deal agreement for pandemic. Now, the core of the complaint is really that tiffany has been mismanaged. It says that tiffany paid dividends when it shouldn't have that it cut marketing and s GNA expenses that will actually cost future. Sales and said that luxury companies in the US have a bleak future saying that ninety percent of Tiffany's sales are brick and mortar stores. You don't WanNa be that kind of retail right now and eighty percent of those brick and mortar stores that typically has our shopping malls. Now lvmh also cites a letter from the French foreign minister that says, it is impossible to close that transaction. That's what Lvmh's saying and the trial for all of this set to begin on January fifth dom. So we'll see whether the judge gets to hear all this where they reached some kind of settlement. Before whether they reach a deal at a lower price, a lot's going to happen in the next couple of months before that trial.

Two-thirds of Americans favor a $15 federal minimum wage
"There's Something that very interesting in a time of extreme alien nation in US society and intense division. That people feel depending on whether they are a Republican or Democrat. But there's a new USA Today survey. Finds that Americans. Have some things that they very much feel in common. Whether they're. Republicans Democrats. Or independence. And This survey data. Is Very interesting in terms of what people are feeling. About the economy and the direction we're going. And one thing that is clear and was runaway in the survey day you know. Is that Republicans Democrats and independents. Overwhelmingly. Support. Raising the federal minimum wage. And the numbers are. Extreme for any survey today with the polarization. That, there would be similarity and how people responded to the question. And three quarters of Americans. Support raising the minimum wage, which is a significant increase even from just a year ago. So. This data has been going steadily up. As the federal minimum wage has stayed where it's been for Long Time seven dollars twenty, five cents an hour and I remember probably five six years ago. When That Waiver political movement started for fifteen dollars an hour minimum wage I was like wow. So you're going to support that. And it's been something that I've been pretty much tone deaf on is how People feel about. Making sure that the minimum wage does what it was originally intended, which is to allow somebody to earn enough to pay for life's basics which obviously, you can't do on seven, twenty, five, an hour minimum wage was last raised and two, thousand nine. So when there's that much consensus for it. Even the corporate interests that bottle up the congress are going to. End Up, having to agree to some level of increase in the minimum wage now, another area. Where there was extremely strong support three quarters. Of Americans. across the political spectrum. and. Very little difference again, among Republicans Democrats and Independents was about making sure that there's child care available. For what is referred to as high quality affordable childcare, which if you think about it, that is a very, very traditionally liberal position. And there was overwhelming support across the political spectrum. For doing whatever public policy would create. Affordable child care numbers were so strong on this that I'm sure it's at least partially pandemic related. Because There are so many people who've had kids who? Who's schools have remained? digital remote whatever. Zoom what? Whatever we call this online learning kind of thing that's going on or hybrid models where the kids are in school maybe as little as two days a week in person three days a week online it's played havoc with people's ability to work, and the polling shows overwhelming that people want government involvement in creating. Some form of program for. Affordable. Child care and I don't know where that ends up going in the political process but it was something that was very stark in clear in the polling. You know one thing also that is clear is that the traditional lines in terms of economics of liberal and conservative? Have not. Really been in play since the great recession started in two thousand seven that there's been a shift in people's attitudes based on the enormous. Disruption. Of the great recession. That people are more interested. In, government being involved in social services in ways that people generally. Did Not want if they were people who. Would consider themselves or wore the label of being conservative now conservative and liberal. See Eye to eye on things involving. Certain phases of the economy and That will move. What. Happens in terms of public policy it states and nationally.
Trump paid $750 in US income taxes in 2016, 2017: NY Times report
"Of us have not been able to sleep Because the IRS has been on our case. I've certainly been in that situation. I had to pay back taxes have to a very divisive divorce with child support all kinds of tabloid headlines. The IRS was on my jock strap. Think of the tune of about $35,000. I had to continue to chip away at that. And as one Johnny Legit always told me Make sure the one bill you pay before any other. If you have depleted resource is at that time is the IRS because they can be relentless. In fact, as a worker will call up your HR and they will garnish your wage. Yes. Why? Mongol Lucia, That is not what you get on a plate. When you have out to a timing with that little stake that they charge you reverse mortgage for and then they put that little green leafy vegetable on the side. They say that's the garnish. No. They can be relentless. So now with the release of information procured Sound off was illegal. Legal, Whatever, I I don't know how they got the information. But the New York Times released it in my mind is pretty much what we already knew about the president from the first time he ran. I'll never forget he got up on that stage. And he said, Yeah, I declared chapter 11 5 times because It is what you can do legally when you're having fiscal problems, and I remember I was blown away by that What you convict play chapter 11 5 times and he did. And he spoke about it. Said how he used the system will now, according to The New York Times, Donald Trump paid $750 in federal income tax is, uh, both in 2016 and in 2017 and no income tax in 10 of the previous 15 years. He reported losing Mohr than he made in that time. These men and I are s battle over $72 million, said he got us a tax refund. This is led to and this is what doesn't sound right? A 10 year audit in that process. It's got to be finished sometime. We now know he owns hundreds of million dollars in assets. The Apprentice earned him about $200 million. His endorsement naming rights and licensing deals earned him another $230 million investments in other people's business is earned him about $200 million, But he lost a billion dollars in the 19 nineties, and most of that was on his golf properties like Dorel. Down in Miami. That one alone he lost $160 million so he made and he lost. And Apparently, there's $300 million in loans that will be due soon. What I was interested in it's at least in this account from the New York Times, No money from Russia. Did you hear that? That's right, Justin. Ah, no money came in from Russia Any of his assets already talked about money that he got from licensing deals in close it. Has cheeky son. Many son. I don't know. He's one of those stones. Then it was Turkey anchor a few other locations and normally I think normally I stand to be corrected. I'm not an accountant. I haven't worked for the I R s, but I've had my stones busted by the IRS. Normally you pay about 24%. In federal income taxes so already Already team Biden Has put out shirts and bumper stickers that say I paid more in taxes and trump and this whole place to his campaign of saying, Hey, I represents Quentin. And Donald Trump represents the rich. The wealthy in Park Avenue.
Why Are Chinese Stocks Delisting
"Sina Corp, which is the online media company based in China is being taken private by Charles. Chao, who is the chairman and CEO. The deal is being valued around two and a half billion dollars. Shares, of Sina Corp up about six percent, not quite at the buyout price. But getting there and all indications are that, yes the normal approvals will have to kick into place but this seems like a deal that's going to get done. What was your reaction when you saw this news? I was surprised because out of all the Chinese companies that I thought could be taken private or otherwise be delisted move elsewhere seen wooden have been the first one that I would have assumed bit the bullet but thinking about it more I'm not as surprised this is kind of a legacy Chinese social media company they spun off their steak and wayball. which is kind of like Chinese twitter. It has a interface very similar to that micro blogging platform. So the steak with an itself is really that's that's the value behind Sina and they made that spinoff. But when you look at the economics behind being listed in China taking yourself private potentially listing elsewhere whether that be Hong Kong or on a foreign exchange. It kind of makes sense the perspective from a lot of Chinese companies right now and granted again did not think that was going to be the first one that we saw bite the bullet but the perspective from a lot of Chinese companies is that they're simply not getting a fair shake in the markets here in the United States. So I'm not surprised to this happening and I, don't think that this'll be the last company that we either see take themselves private in the case of this show and chairman or otherwise list themselves on a different exchange. This certainly is something seen more of in twenty twenty than we've seen the last few years. By my count, we've got more than a dozen. Chinese companies listed on US exchanges that. have either been taken private or are in the process of being taken private, and this is going to be the most since twenty. Fifteen. I have to believe in you know we. Studiously avoid politics on this show, but I have to believe the political atmosphere is a healthy percentage of why this is happening. There's definitely a way to have the conversation without making it political just think about it from the perspective of a Chinese company. If you're doing business, your business is solely focused in China, but you're listed on exchange in a foreign country like the United States. The geopolitical risks that exists there is actually very real for these companies and may not impact their core business, right? If they're just doing business in China, it's Understandable that why would why would enter political situations 'cause your business to change? It doesn't but what it does cost a change is the evaluation that your company receives on a different exchange. So taking yourself private is a kind of extreme reaction against Cena's a little bit of a legacy player here what we're actually seeing more and more companies do is actually just duelists themselves have a second listing oftentimes on Hong Kong. Chinese shop Affi-. If you will bow soon, recently had a secondary listing on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange we seen Baiju hearing rumors about potential dual sting from by`due. That's probably the direction that we're going to see. Chinese companies taking is essentially saying we're GONNA. dualist ourselves to reduce the valuation risk that exists with being listed on a foreign exchange where it goes from here is anybody's guess but from my perspective, this is kind of an understandable reaction to quickly degrading political situation.

Trump's Taxes Show Chronic Losses and Years of Income Tax Avoidance
"So over the weekend, The New York Times published a blockbuster story showing our President Donald J trump's tax returns the headline I'll just say at the headline is so suspect that tells the story for you. It says long concealed records show trump's chronic losses and years of tax avoidance. Now, I can't do this investigation justice on a morning podcast, but I can kind of give you a couple of the figures that you need to know and end with a call to action number. One that you need to know is that Donald J trump paid seven hundred and fifty dollars hard stop in federal income taxes the year he won presidency. In his first during the White House, he paid another seven hundred and fifty dollars reports the New York Times. The Times also says that he has paid no income taxes at all in ten of the previous fifteen years because of his own reporting that he is losing so much money that you made this does not even chuck into account the decades long audit battle he's having with the irs over almost seventy three, million tax refund that he claimed in received was legitimate that ruling could cost him more than one hundred million depending on if it goes adverse. And so at this point in the podcast I will just tell you to pause I'll tell you to open up twenty twenty up to dot us and check your voter registration status get your mail in ballot stuff figured out for those of us who are procrastinators. You just do it. So when it comes time, we only five weeks left I. Think it's worth making sure to take care of your voter registration status and that is all I will say about the story other than you need to read it, and that you need to register to vote in reaction to the story at a minimum. I don't care about your tweets about it I care about your voter registration status.
Vernon Lockhart: Art On the Loose
"All right. So tell us who you are and what you do. My name is Vernon Lockhart. I am a designer. I call myself a creative therapist. I am a exhibit designer, a brand developer interactive designer. Artist. and. I. Am the executive. Director of a program project called project as Moses out of Chicago. Now. One thing that I've been doing for everyone kind of just the start of these interviews during this pandemic kind of just doing a check in to see how folks are doing. So how are you holding up? You know we're given the space in times we're in we're I'm holding up pretty well I think one of the saving grace for me in a lot of this is. When you grow up on from the lane of saying boo as I grew up in a very rough area in Saint Louis and you know we faced adversity every day so. You know you have the coronavirus in things like that now. But for me growing up, you had to face all kinds of threats, potential adversaries so Well given the circumstances, I I commute back and forth caring for my mother who affectionately call a baby girl just can't for. So that's probably one of the key challenges but as far as. Things go we still have a lot of clients that we work with online and for project ASS? Moses alive things virtually with the students given the circumstances I'm I'm very grateful and feel very blessed to will be functioning at full capacity. What does a regular day look like for you now? So for me, a regular day would be getting up one thing that I don't have to do as much in. Okay. With this is not commuting back and forth so much. But getting up saying my prayers getting some breakfast getting on my laptop, looking at emails checking the circumference of the day clients. Immediate needs doing those usually that takes me up until about mid day I usually try to schedule any meetings I have around thirty two noon referee and then any errands I have to run out of usually do air early evening I'm a southern boy living in a city. CHICAGO. So I still have a yard and in a house and things like that. So you I'm out cutting. And things like that towards the evening. So I would call it a pretty normal southern boy day usually my average day but I'm a businessman at the same time. So you know it's a balance between the two but that's an advocate from. So speaking up about business you have a design firm called art on the loose is that right? That's correct. Tell me about it. When did you first start that? So are Donna loose very interesting. We been in operation. Now for about twenty three years I started in the late nineteen I'd say about ninety six and tonight six roughly. And we I was actually working at northwestern university in their at their center for Public Safety Division and we will working on a lot of. Copro shears and things like that in. So it was kind of mundane just no adventure knitted all in myself in one of. Colleagues that I work with addicts Ner we had conversation as I wonder do more I want to be free. I would have some creative freedom here in we started talking about doing our own design work. And in our conversation start playing with name ideas in that I mentioned you know I wanna be free I want to be loose in a good way right as a heart let's let's and so we kinda because we were both artist and he says so let's just call the artem loose in. That's how the name was born in banding Hannah came from this whole Superhero Ultra N-. Staying that I was called as a key going up still combat to this day and so we use kind of empowering. The word artem lose but also with the whole color Palettes, we used our background is how we grew up to create the the business name and I have to just this quick story about ultraman lousy key kids were were calling me ultra because my it was pointed they call me the football hero Alterman. I was like you know and I came home from school I'm I'm one of ten kids, right so I came home from school that I was upset and I start crying to my mother baby girl and I told her what the key is will call him the main she say at wait a minute isn't all tremendous food bureau SABA come home from school to watch ultraman every. Day, and she said I thought he was a superhero say he is. He says we'll take that negative and make it a positive and so I literally went up to my room and start designing year Alterman on and I, went back to school they pop my collar and was like they were like ultimate success right on alternate and so at three sixty beds. So it started all Japan. And took that negative in Medan deposited but also is one of my personal experiences and Brandy. In power of branding, and so I took that icon and symbol. Even. If you look on our business site, you'll see that iconic symbol for for ultra mass I knew. To this day in and I got my design in artistry from my mother, my mother went to design marks. So that's how artem loose in the name came in existence with the story behind it to
